NBC released video clips of Drake promoting his up coming appearance on Saturday Night Live as musical guest and host. In the videos, which were collected and put on You Tube, SNL cast members Bobby Moynahan, and Jay Pharoah join Drake in a series of comedic skits that advertise his January 18th debut. In addition to making corny jokes based around Drake’s music, they also remind audiences that the Young Money rapper got his start in entertainment as an actor on the Canadian teen soap opera, Degrassi: The Next Generation. They then encourage him to break into a sarcastically serious monologue where he pretends to tear up and tell a girl that she has made him the saddest boy in all of Canada.
We’re not entirely sure, but we wouldn’t be surprised if that was a line from his old show. Take a look at the clips. They are good for a laugh. Enjoy!
