22 Drake "Hotline Bling" Parodies, Vines, & Mashups That Make The Best Of Aubrey's Moves — VIDEOS
Drake really came through with the "Hotline Bling" video he released on Monday. Although the video includes James Turrell-inspired technicolor neon backgrounds, they still paled in comparison to the real centerpiece of the video: Drake's nerdy yet incredible dance moves. Fans quickly realized that Aubrey's moves were always on beat, and they repaid Drizzy for the amazing video with hundreds of "Hotline Bling" Vines, memes and mashups of Drake busting those dorky but adorable moves to everything from salsa music to the Frasier theme song. But don't worry: Drake knows he's a nerd, and he's embraced it. And it seems like the Internet is fully embracing it, too.
People are also loving the rapper's cozy turtlenecks and all the different lovely ladies he featured, but it was really his dance moves that won the world over. There are tons of hashtags to help you find videos on Twitter, Vine, and Instagram, including #DrakeDancesToAnything, #DrakeAlwaysOnBeat, and #DanceLikeDrake. There's even a whole, amazing Twitter account called @DrakeDancingTo, pairing the former Degrassi star's moves to literally everything.
Here are some of the best Drake parodies curated from all corners of the Internet, proving that dorky Drake moves are universal. I love you, Aubrey. Never stop dancing.
1. A Little Racket Action For Serena
Drake's been bulking up, probably to impress Serena Williams, so this Vine of Drizzy smashing it in Wii Tennis is perfect.

In this mashup about nothing, Elaine joins Aubrey to show off her little kicks.

Carlton's moves are almost better suited to "Hotline Bling" than they were to Tom Jones' "It's Not Unusual."
6. Twin Peaks
That turtleneck you like is going to come back in style.
7. Drake Finds His Salsa Side
A lot of fans are thrilled that Drake seems super in touch with the part of him that loves all things Dominican, and proved it by pairing up his moves with all kinds of merengue and bachata music. But this mashup where he salsas to "Suavemente" by Elvis Crespo is the best by far.
8. The Aubrey Show
One of the more controversial mashups is this one of Drake dancing to The Cosby Show theme, featuring Raven-Symoné .
9. Do The Mash
And indeed, it's a Drake-yard smash.
10. The Rugrats Theme
Although, come to think of it, the "Hotline Bling" video kind of reminds me of Maya's video for the Rugrats Movie, "Take Me There."
11. Drake Dances To The Frasier Theme Song
Frasier Crane was also a lover of the finer things in life, like art and turtlenecks. And a total nerd. Hey Drakey, I hear the blues are calling tossed salads and scrambled eggs.
