A mysterious new Drake-themed SMS bot called “Hotline Ping” is set to take over Toronto this weekend.
There’s no indication of the owner and the number is untraceable, so we’re not sure who is behind the clever bot, but it offers an interesting Drizzy-inspired mobile experience.
The phone number linked to the bot is 647-722-3749 (DRIZ). The concept is users send in questions and the bot replies with Drake inspired advice, lyrics or other Drake/Toronto references, including images.
It does, however, look like Hotline Ping is limited to a total of three questions per user. Once you’ve hit this limit the hotline bot stops replying to you.
Given the timing of its release, it’s set to take advantage of the massive amount of Drake enthusiasts roaming the city this weekend for OVO Fest.
