Bryan Cranston goes full Walter White for his version of ‘Hotline Bling,’ while Amy Schumer reads the lyrics with an attitude. Watch this video of 13 A-listers doing their version of Drake’s hit.
Who knew Drake‘s “Hotline Bling” would be such a major success?! Well, W Magazine did. They gathered everyone from Bryan Cranston and Amy Schumer to a very excited Maika Monroe, to read the lyrics (or sing and dance, in Maika’s case) of Drake’s hit song that is stuck in everyone’s head. Trust me, you’ll want to watch this!
The video started with Walter, er, Bryan, introducing all the celebrities — and yes, he stayed in character the entire time (no surprise there!).
Saoirse Ronan (who you probably know from The Lovely Bones), Jennifer Jason Leigh and Brie Larson all chose to sing their verses instead of read and we were pleasantly surprised and how talented they all are!
Elizabeth Banks, wearing a full sweater poncho, went into full-on rap mode (like, even more than Drake did), while Maika looked like she was dancing in a club when asked to do her parts (in the best way ever, girl!). Paul Dano, Joel Edgerton, Rooney Mara and Greta Gerwig kept it pretty downright serious, while Seth Rogen and Amy Schumer were ver confrontational! Overall, they were all freaking awesome.
Naturally, this video by W is just part of the trend — celebrities really are just like us; they love Drake’s song. The POTUS himself, Barack Obama actually got down to the song in this video… okay, it’s actually just a mash up but we could totally see him loving it as much as you do, right? Let us know what celebrity version of Drake’s song was your favorite!
