Everyone from Jimmy Fallon to President Barack Obama has remixed Drake's "Hotline Bling" since its release in July, but the latest comes from a truly surprising source: the Philadelphia Police Department.

The department turned the track into a PSA to warn residents about unlawful parking practices ahead of the coming snowstorm; it's not uncommon for people to use cones or lawn chairs to save a spot in an ideal location on the block. 

Fittingly, the ad includes Drake tossing orange cones. And Philly's very own Meek Mill wasn't chosen for the PSA. We'll just leave that right there.

A snow storm is coming..and you know what that means. Soon, people everywhere will be using cones, lawn chairs,...

The Philly police also tweeted, "Looks like a big #snowstorm is coming. If u see folks saving spots, call us on your cellphone to report #NoSavesies."  

Jimmy Fallon performed the track as Bob Dylan and there was a parody that featured Barack Obama. Along with the original, all the remakes have gotten thousands of hits. 

Drake is working on his next album, Views from the 6, and has been nominated for multiple Grammys. According to MTV, Sugoi Books, creator of the Kanye West paper doll, has released a Drake coloring book.
