What do you do when you're meant to be directing a music video and the artist won't go on set because his Instagram got hacked?

The video's $100,000 budget did not go to waste, with kids smashing cop cars and a group of women riding mini ride-on cars among the highlights. Twitter was quick to praise Staake for his work, though some fans were confused as to why they were watching a Young Thug video with very little of Thugger in it.

Check out the best of the responses below.
