How did he made that epic reunion happen?? So nostalgic!!


The moment we’d all been waiting for finally arrived last night on YouTube — a Degrassi reunion. Drake gathered his high school classmates from on and off the screen to create a visually appealing, yet nostalgic video for his latest release ‘I’m Upset’.

While you’re looking up where to find the 2000s TV drama, take a look at the Detailed Degrassi event as you watch the madness unfold. You’re welcome!!

Drake—a.k.a. Aubrey Graham—staged a Degrassi reunion for the class of 2007 in his music video for "I'm Upset," released overnight. The rap superstar recruited many of his former co-stars—including Dalmar Abuzeid (Danny Van Zandt), Sarah Barrable-Tishauer (Liberty Van Zant), Paula Brancati (Jane Vaughn), Stefan Brogen (Archie "Snake" Simpson), Lauren Collins (Paige Michalchuk), Nina Dobrev (Mia Jones), Marc Donato (Derek Haig), Ephram Ellis (Rick Murray), Jake Epstein (Craig Manning), Stacey Farber (Ellie Nash), Jake Goldsbie (Toby Isaacs), Shane Kippel (Spinner Mason), Andrea Lewis (Hazel Aden), Linlyn Lue (Laura Kwan), Miriam MacDonald (Emma Nelson), Melissa McIntyre (Ashley Kerwin), Adamo Rugguiero (Marco Del Rossi), AJ Saudin (Connor DeLaurier), Christina Schmidt (Christina Schmidt), Cassie Steele (Manny Santos)—for his trip down memory lane. Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith, who starred in the four-part Degrassi Goes Hollywood film special, also made cameo appearances. For reasons unknown, cast members Daniel Clark (Sean Cameron) and Ryan Cooley (J.T. Yorke) were M.I.A.

In an Instagram comment, Drake said Cooley "thought it was a scam." Clark commented, "Really sad I missed this. Brought back some amazing memories—miss and love you brother."

Thanks to the generosity of @champagnepapi, @JayMewes & I got to go back to @degrassi Community School one more time! Drake and his 22 year old wunderkind video Director @karenaevans gathered almost all the friends (and one enemy) from Jimmy Brooks’ childhood and re-opened the doors to Degrassi for the most transgressive (and expensive) episode of The Next Generation ever made! Naturally, @jaymewes & I loved being included - but that wasn’t my favorite part of this magical weekend in Toronto (which was only last Friday, Saturday & Sunday). The highlight was watching kids that literally went to fake school together their entire young lives reuniting as grownups who still like each other. Drizzy had his friends and former class-and-cast mates exit Lamborghinis and re-enter the pop culture conversation - and it was all done with incredible affection. I knew the video would be fun to make and go viral instantly; but I didn’t realize I’d have front row seats for the sweetest reach-back I’ve ever seen. Even if @jayandsilentbob didn’t get invited to the reunion, I would still be in love with this film - especially because of the heart-melting closing credits, with the images of the cast then-&-now as the classic theme song plays. I sang that song on the operating room table while I was trying not to die in the hospital a few months ago, having zero idea I’d be seeing my friends from Degrassi Community School again soon. Or maybe I DID die and this is the afterlife. It’s what my idea of Heaven would look like: you die and go to a tiny school in Canada where you get to haunt the halls forever with grown up versions of Manny Santos, Spinner Mason, Emma Nelson, Jimmy Brooks, Craig Manning, Ashley Kerwin, Liberty Van Zandt, Snake Simpson and the rest of our fictional friends from Hogtown. Thank you Aubrey and Karena - this video is like a Zit Remedy for the soul!

The music video features a number of callbacks to Degrassi: The Next Generation, like Spinner puking his guts out and Emma fussing with Manny's risqué wardrobe. At one point in the clip, Jimmy's new friends finally get their revenge on Rick for shooting him in the back 14 years ago. There are no hard feelings IRL, per Ellis' Instagram caption.
