There are many reasons why I stan hard for King of the World Mike Tyson. First and foremost, he raps on Madonna’s track “Iconic” from her 2015 album Rebel Heart. (Shameless promo, to be honest.) Second, he’s pee-your-pants-level hysterical. Please click on the related Lip-Sync Battle link below if you don’t believe me.
Orrrr check out this clip from Monday night’s The Tonight Show, where Mike give us something we didn’t know we needed: An impression of Drake’s “Hotline Bling.” It’s every bit as flaw-free as you think.
It all starts when host Jimmy Fallon shows Mike a meme Questlove posted to his Instagram of the boxer. The “Hotline Bling” lyrics appear over Mike’s face, but slightly tweaked to reflect his lisp: “You uthed to call me on the thell phone.”
“I never talked to you on the phone man,” Mike quips jokingly. And then he does the unthinkable: gets out of his seat and serenades the audience with a humorous, arousing rendition of “Hotline Bling.” He sways his hips. He wags his hand suggestively. His lisp is in full-throttle. Are you pregnant yet? Yep, you definitely are.
This man is a national treasure. Thank you for blessing us with this moment, Mike. We’re sure Drake is fan-girling somewhere right now.
