The majority of the video consists of the Canadian rapper dancing by himself in a variety of color-lit empty rooms with the occasional appearance of legendary choreographer Tanisha Scott and a handful of backup dancers. The video’s starkness has allowed for the creation of countless memes, the majority of which show Drake dancing to everything from EDM to salsa music.

Some of the memes poke fun at the rapper’s moves while others continue the #AlwaysOnBeat meme started back in May by a Beyonce fan.

While some people have pointed out similarities between the video for “Hotline Bling” and the video for Sean Paul’s “I’m Still in Love With You,” most everyone else has focused on Drake’s cha-cha-esque moves and the turtleneck sweater he rocks for about half the video. “Hotline Bling” is currently number 2 on Billboard’s Hot 100 and it probably won’t be long until the single hits number one. We’re still waiting on Drake’s much-anticipated Views from the 6, so stay tuned for more info, hopefully coming soon!

Weird Al Yankovic Wants You to Learn Your Grammar in “Word Crimes”

(PCM) The king of song parodies has struck again with his latest single “Word Crimes,” a parody of Robin Thicke’s 2013 summer anthem “Blurred Lines.”

Weird Al debuted “Word Crimes” yesterday as the second of eight videos that he is releasing over eight days in promotion for his newly released album Mandatory Fun, the musician’s fourteenth studio album.

“Word Crimes” parodies Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” song and video, which you’re probably already very familiar with if you were alive and conscious during the summer of 2013.

“Blurred Lines” was inescapable; the song was on every radio station and music video channel, leading it to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 and on to become the longest running number one single of 2013 and the 2010′s, remaining on the top of the Hot 100 for 12 weeks.

“Blurred Lines” also drew a lot of negative attention for its misogynistic stance and “rapey” lyrics.

As of today, “Blurred Lines” has over 327 million views on YouTube.

Taking the incredibly fun and catchy beat and laying down lessons in grammar, Weird Al has succeeded in making the song his own and catching people’s attention: after just one day on YouTube, “Word Crimes” has already gained over 2 million views.

Weird Al revealed on The View on Tuesday that he was inspired to write the song due to the prevalence of text-slang and improper grammar and lack of education in today’s society.

Watch Weird Al’s “Word Crimes” below and check out his website here, where you can also purchase his new album Mandatory Fun.
