Some guys ask for your sign. Other guys use trite lines like, "If I could reinvent the alphabet, I'd put U and I together."
And then there's Brody Ryan.
After begging model Piper Kennedy for her number in Starbucks, "Singer/Song Writer/Designer/Photographer/Producer" (according to his Twitter, @sirBRODAG) Brody Ryan sent her the below awkward video where he's smiling and sort of massaging his face (to Drake's "Hold On, We're Going Home").
Kennedy sent it to friends who posted it on the Internet, and #StarbucksDrakeHands was born, with copycats (and actual cats) imitating his creepy, face-touching video. Scroll down for more randomness from this week:

The Game made headlines this week when he, along with Drake, donated $20,000 to Anna Angel, an Ohio woman who lost her five children and boyfriend in a horrific fire.
But the rapper from Compton, Calif., isn't stopping there. The Game, 33, whose real name is Jayceon Taylor, plans on channeling $1 million of his own money into the Robin Hood Project, with the goal of giving money to people around the world.
"It's a hand-to-hand project," he explains. "If I see someone who looks like they could use it and my heart tells me I should contribute to their struggles, I'll give them something. The direction comes from within."

Fans of buzzed-about new R&B artist Frank Ocean were in for a special treat on Tuesday when they came to his show at the Wiltern in L.A.
Aside from being treated to his smooth sounds, the crowd also got a glimpse of Drake, who made a surprise appearance in the VIP section of the venue.
"He showed up in a white T-shirt and jeans, with a date on his arm," a concertgoer tells PEOPLE. "As the crowd noticed him walking in, they screeched and created a spotlight on him with their cell phones while taking his picture."
Once settled, the source says a head-bobbing Drake, "sang along to a majority of the tunes and seemed in great spirits while occasionally joking around with pals and taking pictures with fans."
The "Take Care" artist didn't show any overt PDA with his unidentifiable guest, but he "occasionally whispered in her ear," according to the insider.
Sara Bareilles and Keri Hilson were also guests at the show.

Nearby, Tom Cruise's son Connor and his posse held court at a table, while Spike Lee, bedecked in Giants gear, relaxed with his son; Shaquille O'Neal cuddled with pint-sized girlfriend Nicole "Hoopz" Alexander; and Drake warmed up for his set by handing out shots to women near the stage.
