Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump may have sparked the interest of some new potential voters after spoofing rap star Drake’s “Hotline Bling” on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend.
Trump, who also hosted, mocked Drizzy’s infectious hit during the live Saturday (November 7) night broadcast.
The most indelible image of the parody was probably none other than host and Republican presidential contender and Donald Trump mocking Drake’s moves, chanting “call me on the cell phone.” Whatever you think of Trump the man, it’s definitely going to be hard to look at Drake’s dance moves the same way again. It’s also, as Vanity Fair’s Joe Reid writes, “the GIF-able moment his campaign was likely looking for.” (Mic)

During his appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on Monday, the boxing champ brought the meme to life. He grabbed the mic and proceeded to perform the No. 2 song in the country along with some dance moves of his own (watch out Drake). (Rap-Up)

Drizzy’s new music video has sparked huge sales for Moncler jackets.
Domenico Galluccio, a Moncler spokesman, told VF.com that on Tuesday, its Web site sold more than double the number of jackets Drake wore than it typically does on a regular day. “We had a great result on the e-commerce sale of the Maya model,” he said. The Maya retails for $1,150. (Vanity Fair)
