See the Internet’s Hilarious Reactions to Drake’s ‘Hotline Bling’ Video
Drake is a dancing fool in his new video for "Hotline Bling," which debuted Monday night (Oct. 19). And now social media is doing what it does best by creating memes, mashup videos and theories on the visual with Drizzy's two-step dance moves.
The "Back to Back" rapper has been crowned the meme king before and he continues to provide material for social media users in the Director X-helmed effort. Most tweeters have paired the If You're Reading This It's Too Late creator's moves with a number of merengue songs, but it's Elvis Crespo's "Suavemente" and Los Hermanos Rosario's "La Duena Del Swingas" that prove to be the best.
But either way, the outcome is the same with the match-up being eerily on beat with the Toronto rhymer's two-step. It may largely have to do with the fact that "Hotline Bling" samples D.R.A.M.'s ode to his favorite Latin dance, "Cha Cha."
But while D.R.A.M isn't feeling the comparisons in their sounds, it seems the visuals has a similar feel to other music videos. Similarities have also been drawn between Drizzy's video and Sean Paul's "I'm Still in Love With You" and even a rave party from SpongeBob Squarepants. Others have also compared the "Energy" rapper's moves to "The Carlton."
The Twitterverse also peeped the Nicki Minaj look-alike in "Hotline Bling." In one tweet, a user compared a scene from the video that nearly mimics a photo of the two Young Money artists. And a few are calling shade on Drake's part.
