The internet exploded last week when hip hop sensation, Drake’s music video for his new track “Hotline Bling” dropped. Most people expected the music video to be the typical hip hop video- sexy with a bit of an edge. However, Drake shocked his fans by whipping out his best “White dad at a party of teengers” dance moves.
Of course, because the internet is what it is, people wasted absolutely no time creating hilarious parodies of the borderline ridiculous video. Here are a few of the best:
For those of you who don’t know, Drake broke into fame on the hit Canadian teen show, Degrassi. While on the show his character, Jimmy, was shot and left paralyzed by an angry classmate (Rick) who decided to shoot up the high school in order to get revenge on those who bullied him.
While the episode was very dramatic and emotional, someone decided to splice the footage of Rick raising his gun to shoot Jimmy and Drake dancing in his new video to illustrate how Drake’s moves could have saved his character all those years ago in the hallowed halls of Degrassi.
Put anything from television theme songs to hits from your favorite artists in the background of Drake’s dancing and then laugh. Repeat, repeat, repeat.
