In what may go down in history as one of the best college pranks of all time, someone using the email address [email protected] has been sending University of Michigan students a barrage of emails that, unsurprisingly, contain single lines from Drake’s hit song “Hotline Bling.”
Inevitably, many students took to Twitter to show off the emails.
When your email gets hacked, that can only mean one thing.

Even the university’s student newspaper, the Michigan Daily, got in on the action, tweeting a poll in an attempt to determine how many students have heard from [email protected].

Some students have gleaned bits of information about the sender by clicking the “Show Original” link on the dropdown menu at the top of the message. The source is cited as “Michael’s Macbook Pro” and described as being part of an “LSA Sophomore Initiative.”
Whoever you are, [email protected], thank you for this. Sure, you’ve annoyed countless college students and potentially jeopardized your education. But this still makes for one of the best pranks of 2016 so far.
