What hasn’t been done with “Hotline Bling” yet? It’s been memed, covered and discussed six ways to Sunday. But there’s still juice in Drake’s most powerful 2015 culture-domination device. Today W magazine—which published a very memorable Aubrey interview in October—has 13 film and TV actors dramatically reading the lyrics.
Some of ‘em opt to sing, some go with their usual schticks, some read it dramatically, super-dramatically or goofily. Check it out up top.
The full cast for W's deviously wonderful project is made up of Brie Larson, Elizabeth Banks, Saoirse Ronan, Bryan Cranston, Amy Schumer, Kristen Wiig, Rooney Mara, Seth Rogen, Paul Dano, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Maika Monroe, Greta Gerwig and Joel Edgerton. We’d rather not see any more from Dano, but we’d watch Cranston and Larson do the whole song.
