Kanye West enjoyed the title of creative director for Thursday night’s inaugural Pornhub awards. West’s duties, according to Vulture,  included designing the statues and costumes, and even performing briefly on stage with Teyana Taylor.

The awards were just as bizarre as one might anticipate. A press release regarding West’s participation described his trophies as “bespoke erotica-inspired award statue for each of tonight’s unique categories.” As the press release goes on to put more bluntly, “the award statues represent imagined alien sex toys.”

In addition to West’s many stylings on display, he debuted a Spike Jonze-directed video for a new song he made with Lil Pump, “I Love it.” West stayed true to the awards show’s futurist theme, offering viewers a predictably-strange experience.
