Cape Town - A parody of Drake’s music video Hotline Bling, entitled "Gupta Bling" and starring President Jacob Zuma, has already received 20 000 views after being uploaded earlier this week on YouTube.

The parody was created by comedian Deep Fried Man and loaded to YouTube channel Mal Content on Monday.

With Drake’s hit song forming the backdrop for the parody, Zuma’s photoshopped head can be seen assuming the main character's role, with the three Gupta brothers playing his backup dancers.

Commenters on YouTube loved the video, which features lines such as, “You used to call me on my cell phone… to discuss that nuclear deal,” and, “I know when the Guptas ring… they gonna ask me for something.”

“So funny. Love it!” said YouTube user Nilesh Makan.

“Hahahahaha!! Epic!” said another, Jason Young.
