Every time we think that we’ve reached the pinnacle of “Hotline Bling” parody, we’re proven wrong. The latest to jump on the awkward dance Drake train? American Horror Story: Hotel.
AHS does not shy away from a frothy and frivolous musical number, no matter how sacred, daunting or overdone that tune may be, they make it their own.
Matt Bomer, swaying and chain-smoking to Drake’s “Hotline Bling” doesn’t hold a candle to Jessica Lange’s “Name Game” from AHS: Assylum (it doesn’t even disturb the atmosphere enough to make that candle flicker) but it’s a cute little homage to a song that has possessed the airwaves like an angry poltergeist.
