The Philadelphia Police Made a Drake Parody and, Well, E for Effort

A Little Sense of Humor Goes a Long Way

When you think of a city police department, you probably think of an imposing group of serious men and women working to keep the streets safe. Or, given more recent coverage about police in the news, maybe you think of high-horsed, dangerously overprivileged white men who are ready to shoot anything they choose.

The Philadelphia Police Department is about to change all of that.

The Philly PD recently released a shamelessly dorky parody of Drake’s “Hotline Bling,” the single that topped charts towards the end of 2015. In the weeks and months following the song’s music video debut, countless parodies were made to mock Drake’s eccentric dancing, and while we all had a good laugh at that a while back, we might have entered 2016 thinking the time for such revelry was over.

Wrong again.

Is this video enough to stop Philly residents from trying to save parking spots?
