[Video] There Is Now a Vietnamese Cover of 'Hotline Bling'

Oh, YouTube. You have brought us such joy: from turtle sex to the “apparently” kid, countless bad lip readings to one Antoine Dodson, the entertainment never ends. And now, through the power of your magical, mystical online library of user-generated content, there is a Vietnamese-language cover of Drake's “Hotline Bling”.

Thanks to YouTube user Vietglish Fun, the Canadian rapper's latest hit is now available in half-spoken, half-rapped Vietnamese, complete with the original video's colorful backdrops and a little green screen magic. Over three minutes, the performer faithfully mimics Drake's dance moves in all their awkward glory, bouncing and swaying just like Drizzy himself. While she does a reasonably good job of replicating the lyrics, however, the performer perhaps loses some of the song's flow in translation. Either way, this is a gift to be celebrated; let the memes begin.
