Drake’s “Hotline Bling” Used in Philadelphia Police PSA
The East Coast is preparing for Winter Storm Jonas and the Philadelphia Police are using Drake's "Hotline Bling" video to issue a public service announcement about street parking during snowy weather. With Drizzy dishing out orange traffic cones, an officer raps over the beat with bars about not using cones to save a parking spot for yourself or other people.
Suffice it to say, the "Hotline Bling" parodies have officially jumped the shark.
Here is the accompanying PSA from the Philly PD to go along with the clip:
A snow storm is coming..and you know what that means. Soon, people everywhere will be using cones, lawn chairs, trashcans, uh, toilets, and any other household item that they can think of to save their shoveled-out parking spot. Folks - the spot isn't yours, and saving it is against the law. Don't fight and argue with your neighbors - if you see an offending spot saver, call 911 and the PPD will swing by and check it out. Oh! Since we are a totally hip police department, and as such, we know that the kids like the Drake, we made this neat video that you can share with them! Now, it's easy for young kids everywhere to get the message that when it comes to holding parking spots on public streets, Philadelphia is a #NoSavesies city!
