The city of West Hollywood put out a YouTube video reminding us about the ills of using our smart phones while we're driving or crossing the street—and it sure caught our attention.

The video called "Alice in WeHoLand" features a bevy of shirtless hunks, choreographed dance sequences, plenty of rump shaking and hair whipping and a leopard-print Mercedes convertible with the backdrop of Santa Monica Boulevard in WeHo. You can spot the city's rainbow crosswalk and the Pacific Design Center in some shots. The catchy tune sung by YouTube star Todrick Hall (who wrote, directed and choreographed the video) is a parody of Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off."

We spotted drag queen Willam Belli (a contestant on RuPaul's Drag Race) dressed up as Alice in WeHoLand, Glee's Alex Newall, and famed YouTuber Davey Wavey.

"It’s important that everyone remember the ‘stop, look, and listen’ rule when enjoying our city," West Hollywood Mayor John D’Amico said in a statement. "WeHo is a Wonderland, a busy place with lots to see and do, but save a second for safety, it could save your life. Give a wink or a wave and cross safely. You might just get a date out of it or meet the White Rabbit over the rainbow."
