Nothing to see here but Drake, doing “whatever it takes” to make his longtime fans proud.
Long before he was Drake, he was Aubrey Graham, a young Canadian actor playing Jimmy Brooks on the TV series "Degrassi" — and for his latest music video, he staged a glorious high school reunion with all his former costars.
The singer dropped the video for "I’m Upset" on Wednesday night, and judging by the online explosion over the clip, nobody is upset with how it turned out.
The raucous video begins with the rapper waking up from a one-night stand, getting a reminder that his 10-year reunion is later that day. As he gets fitted for a suit to wear to the festivities, the first former co-star, Shane Kippel, arrives. Yep, that’s really what Spinner looks like now!
As they arrive to the soiree, the special appearances keep happening as Stacey Farber, Adamo Ruggiero, Lauren Collins, Jake Epstein, Christina Schmidt, Andrea Lewis, Melissa McIntyre, LinLyn Lue, Stefan Brogen, Jake Goldsbie, Marc Donato, Dalmar Abuzeid, A.J. Saudin, Miriam McDonald, Cassie Steele, Nina Dobrev, Sarah Barrable-Tishauer and Paula Brancati all roll up the celebrate. Even Ephraim Ellis — who played the guy who shot Drake in the back, paralyzing him and turning him into "Wheelchair Jimmy" — was there, though it didn’t go so swimmingly.
Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith also show up, reprising the Jay and Silent Bob roles who also had an arc on the series, before the party becomes a weed-filled, vomit-inducing fiesta that eventually erupts in flames.
Watch the entire video above, which ends with the show’s original theme song and some videos from the series that will really take you back.
