Kendrick Lamar’s “Not Like Us” Smashes Records and Sparks LA Library’s Hoot-Worthy Response

Kendrick Lamar has struck gold again with his “Not Like Us” music video, amassing millions of views and igniting widespread conversation. Currently boasting around 24.5 million views, the video has fans buzzing and dissecting every detail. One unexpected reaction came from the Los Angeles Public Library, which jokingly considered “retiring” their owl puppet mascot after Kendrick’s playful jab at Drake, symbolized by smashing an OVO owl piñata in the video.

The library’s owl puppet, a staple in children’s programming, became the center of a light-hearted jest on TikTok, fueled by the “Certified PDF-file” line in “Not Like Us.” While the owl predates the Kendrick-Drake rivalry, the humor struck a chord with fans, further propelling the video’s popularity. Breaking records, the video now holds the title for the most views for a rap video within 24 hours this year, cementing its place in viral video history.

Beyond the owl antics, “Not Like Us” is rich with symbolism and subtle jabs. Co-directed by Kendrick and Dave Free, the video addresses Drake’s claims of tension, particularly those insinuated in tracks like “Family Matters” and “The Heart Part 6.” Drake’s allegations about the paternity of Kendrick’s son were met with appearances by Kendrick’s partner, Whitney Alford, and their children, seemingly refuting Drake’s accusations.

As fans continue to unravel the video’s layers and speculate on potential album hints, “Not Like Us” remains a cultural phenomenon. Whether this leads to more owl-themed jokes or a deeper dive into Kendrick and Drake’s ongoing saga, one thing is certain: Kendrick Lamar knows how to keep us all watching and talking.
