NEW YORK (PIX11) — We’ve all heard our fair share of pick-up lines but one guy decided to re-write the whole game, and has gone viral in the process.

The internet has dubbed him “StarbucksDrakeHands” guy — with good reason.

As per the interwebs, he recently hit on a girl in a Los Angeles-area Starbucks. She reluctantly gave him her number and 24 hours later he sends her a video some would describe as bizarre.

In the video, the unidentified man poses into the camera with a dead stare, then cracks a smile before taking his hand to cover what appears to be his blushing face.

It all happens while Drake’s “Hold On, We’re Going Home” plays in the background.

Meet #StarbucksDrakeHands guy.

If you’re scratching your head, then you’re not alone.

The girl who received the video reportedly forwarded it to a few friends, it then goes viral like all things do and then the internet responds in the only way it can: parody madness.

It’s still unclear who this guy is as he has yet to come forward, or even if this video is real. (We’re hoping it is, for his sake.)

What is real is the hashtag people are sharing their parodies with: #StarbucksDrakeHands.

Clearly the government shut down hasn’t affected people’s creativity.
