Philly Police Channel Drake's 'Hotline Bling' for Their Latest Bizarre PSA Another hit from the viral crew in blue

Philadelphia police are quickly becoming the authorities on oddly compelling viral PSAs.

First, they generated national attention with a bizarre revival of a Saved by the Bell drug PSA from 1991. Now, the department is getting traction for a snow-related request to report people who are blocking parking spots with "cones, lawn chairs, trash cans, uh, toilets, and any other household item." 

On Facebook, the quick clip set to the tune of Drake's "Hotline Bling" has tallied more than 365,000 views and been shared upward of 8,500 times. Hey, whatever it takes to keep people from being spot-hogging jerks. 

And if you're wondering why it cuts off abruptly, the department clarified on Facebook that "ending the video early wasn't an accident ... it was a public service."
