The world just can’t stop mocking Drake’s goofy ‘Hotline Bling’ moves! First Justin Bieber, then Bernie Sanders, now Donald Trump is getting in on the fun, mocking the rapper’s famous dance moves as part of a hilarious ‘SNL’ skit on Nov. 7. Watch it here!
After much anticipation (and debate), Donald Trump, 69, returned to the set of Saturday Night Live on Nov. 7 to take up the show’s coveted hosting duties for the second time. While most of the sketches were spent poking fun at his rivals and on occasion, himself, there was at least one sketch that seemed to appeal to at least most viewers: his “Hotline Bling” parody! That’s right, The Donald took on Drake’s meme-worthy music video and is was surprisingly hilarious. Click through to watch!
We’ll admit it, Donald kind of nailed it with this one. The sketch, starring Jay Pharoah as Drake, spoofed the rapper’s dance moves from the now infamous music video released last month. “I’m proud of my dance moves,” he sings in the parody. “Because lots of people dance like this. Bet your father dance like me.” For his part, Donald showed up as one of the “tax guys” who dances exactly like Drizzy. He even gives his best attempt at singing the video’s most famous line — “you used to call me on your cellphone” — while shimmying along with SNL cast members Taran Killam, Bobby Moynihan and Beck Bennett. Seriously, who knew Donald could dance…like at all!
To make things even better, SNL veteran Martin Short, 65, also made a cameo in the sketch, reprising his role as the pointy-haired Ed Grimley character. “Drizzy Drake, you stole my moves and that’s no lie,” he says in the spoof. Now that he mentions it, we’re kind of convinced Drake stole Ed’s moves!
Of course, Donald is hardly the first to poke fun at Drake’s headline-making music video. Just days earlier, fellow Presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders, 74, appeared in a hysterical video for The Ellen Degeneres Show, in which he could be seen waving a little American flag, shimming next to a beautiful woman and making cell phone gestures with his hands. Now, who had the better Drake parody: Donald or Bernie?
