The RCMP Just Killed Our Buzz with This "Hotline Bling" Parody
Published Apr 20, 2016We knew the cops would find some way to kill our buzz on 4/20, but we weren't expecting this. The Nova Scotia RCMP have just released a new parody of Drake's "Hotline Bling" and now the song is completely ruined forever.
Like the atrocious Canadian police rap battle before it, this is terrible rap music with a message. In other words, the RCMP have basically written a new Macklemore song.
"Cop Light Bling" features some mind-numbingly bad AutoTune and a version of Drake's backing track that somehow sounds like a MIDI file from 1997. Worse yet, the accompanying video includes a bunch of dorky cops dancing around on the highway.
The message of the song is that you should switch lanes when you are driving past a cop car pulled over on the side of the road. Then again, if you drove by a bunch of RCMP dancing around to last year's novelty song you'd probably rather pull a U-turn and get far, far away.
If you want your life to be just a little bit worse today — or if you're a damn narc who enjoys this kind of shit — you can watch the cops ruin "Hotline Bling" below. No thanks to Vice for the tip.
