We think Drake and Mario would approve.
We can't stop bumping "Hotline Bling". It's becoming a bit of a problem. Obviously we're not the only ones. The internet, as always, has responded with enthusiasm to anything Drake related, this time with an explosion of Sponge Bob 'Shell Phone' memes.
One guy has gone further and mashed up "Hotline Bling" with classic songs from old N64 games.
If there was ever a formula for internet fame, surely this is it: 'something Drake' x 'vintage games' = viral internet phenomena.
The guy responsible is Seth Everman, who describes himself as "21/boy/sweden/actual trash" on his (pretty awesome) Tumblr. In the video for this mash up, Everman plays “Hotline Bling” while alternating through Nintendo 64 games The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time, Super Mario 64,and Mario Kart 64. They fit perfectly in to the beat. It's pure genius.
