Philadelphia cops turn to Drake for help with illegal parking spot savers

The Philadelphia Police Department is cracking down on people attempting to save parking spots this winter by using everything from unlawful cones to clunky lawn chairs as placeholders. And they’re using Drake to help get their message across.

Wednesday night, the police department’s Facebook page offered up a “Hotline Bling” remix that features our beloved Champagne Papi swatting away cones. It’s also dubbed with a new track that reminds people to call in if they see any unlawful spot-saving.

And while this might be a desperate attempt to engage with the #youth, at least it’s worth a good chuckle.
