Drake just gave us the ultimate throwback with his “I’m Upset” video. He decided to stage the ultimate reunion at Degrassi Community School with everyone. If you watched Degrassi: The Next Generation back in the day, then you’re going to see some very familiar faces. Get ready, Degrassi fans. Your heart is going to burst with reunion feels!
Other than Drake, here’s who shows up in the video: Nina Dobrev (Mia), Stacey Farber (Ellie), Adamo Ruggiero (Marco), Lauren Collins (Paige), Miriam McDonald (Emma), Jake Epstein (Craig), Christina Schmidt (Terri), Andrea Lewis (Hazel), Melissa McIntyre (Ashley), LinLyn Lue (Ms. Kwan), Stefan Brogen (Mr. Simpson), Ephraim Ellis (Rick), Jake Goldsbie (Toby), Marc Donato (Derek), Dalmar Abuzeid (Danny), A.J. Saudin (Connor), Cassie Steele (Manny), Sarah Barrable-Tishauer (Liberty), and Paula Brancati (Jane). Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith also reprise their Jay and Silent Bob characters to sell weed to Mr. Simpson. Yes, that’s Rick running down the halls of Degrassi and being chased in what’s likely revenge for shooting Jimmy. It’s been 14 years since that game-changing episode, but we’ll never forget what Rick did to Jimmy.
The Degrassi cast has a blast partying with Drake in his music video. It’s like no time has passed. But they have grown up! That’s an understatement. They’re no longer the adorable kids walking the halls. They’re full grown adults. Doesn’t that make you feel really, really old? Now we just need a full-on revival and o our world will be complete! Take a look at the then and now photos in our Degrassi gallery now!
