We all should’ve pulled out the maple syrup vodka last night and got drunk in honor of Canada, because the night belonged to them. The people of Canada made hot piece Justin Trudeau, who is giving me Peter Facinelli meets Jonathan Knight, their new Prime Minister and their Minister of Moves Drake burped up his video for “Hotline Bling.”
One quick second after Drake birthed out his new video, a million GIFs and memes were born. “Hotline Bling” is a GIF wonderland thanks to Wheelchair Jimmy putting on a turtleneck from Chess King and dancing like a drunk Grizzly Bear who was trained in the art of dance by Carlton Banks. Everybody kept saying that Drake was dad dancing, but I’m guessing everybody’s dad is a constipated Elaine Benes, because the hell kind of dad dances like this?
Drake is a human jukebox of moves, because in just a few minutes, he delivered the Carlton, the Elaine, the Peanuts, the Matrix and he did the kind of struggle salsa moves my white uncle does at a family party after he’s had a few beers and a Celia Cruz song comes on the Jambox speaker. Come for Wheelchair Jimmy’s dork moves and stay for his LEGO Man beard.
And expect new Prime Minster Justin Therouxorsomething to name Drake’s turtleneck his Deputy Prime Minister.
