Hotline Bling: Chris Lilley performs the Drake song as Summer Heights High character Mr. G

Posted on

In the days since it made its way online on Oct. 19, Drake’s “Hotline Bling” video has spawned countless memes and mashups featuring the rapper’s cha-cha-inspired moves. But Australian comedic actor Chris Lilley just took “Hotline Bling” parodies to a new level when he shared his own version on Saturday.

Lilley, who played Mr. G on Summer Heights High, gives a spirited rendition of the song as the anxious drama teacher from the mid-2000s Australian series. In the video, he starts off by showing a circle of students various dance moves before putting on a Halloween mask and getting down to “Hotline Bling.”
