ON TUESDAY, DRAKE’S new video dropped and his unique dancing instantly became a hilarious meme.
But in the space of two short days Hotline Bling has taken on a whole new life of its own – it’s unstoppable.
This Vine was watched 10 million times in one day
Because it’s one of the best Vines ever created.
The lyrics were wonderfully applied elsewhere too
“I know when that hotline bling”
“That can only mean one thing”
Once the internet had moved on from Drake’s dance moves, suddenly his facial expressions were absolutely fair game.
Real life Drake
In real situations
A Drake for all seasons
But the true success story of the Hotline Bling meme – the key to its popularity – has to be Drake being edited into all sorts of situations.
With lightsabers, doing his thing
In space, convincing the Star Trek lads of the hotness of the hotline bling
Carlton was the best comparison
But we saw the the pizza hotline in action too
Any Spanish-themed music worked well. The #DrakeAlwaysOnBeat hashtag took care of that
The geniuses of the internet have taken this one and ran with it
And created the finest and funniest meme of 2015
Congratulations. We’ve all been a part of something special.
