Drake in "Hotline Bling"

“You used to call me on my elf phone.” Some young Drake fans were in for a surprise when they woke up one morning and looked for their Elf on the Shelf, as they were about to find little “Elfis” posed in a scene straight out of a Christmas-themed version of the “Hotline Bling” video.

Kristen Dipini of Dale City, Va., one of the parents behind the idea, tells TMZ that she and her husband decided to get creative with the elf doll for their three kids, who all love the rapper.

“Elfis heard that hotline bling,” Dipini captioned the photo, which is dated Dec. 10 on her Facebook page but is now going viral. She later commented, “I'm dying for the kids to wake up and see it lol!”
