Everybody loves Drake, right? This 68-year-old woman from Scotland (not exactly Drake's demo, to be perfectly stereotyping) fancies Drizzy so much that she dedicated a whole Vine account to the rapper. Bette Reynolds uses it to transform the guy's tunes into spoken-word clips, set to bagpipes. The Drake Effect is real!

"I’m always up for having fun and making people laugh, and my son, Brittlestar, has been working on Vine for awhile now," Reynolds told Mashable. "He thought the idea of his Scottish mum reciting rap lyrics would be funny."

But Reynolds doesn't limit herself to Drake. She's covered KanyeDesiigner and others before too. Big ups to Bette and Brittlestar!

Watch an episode of our digital miniseries The Drake Effect, this one detailing how Drizzy changed hip-hop and R&B radio culture:
