The casting call seeking a Rob Ford body double, chubby siblings for an awkward family photo, and a bunch of models for a Drake music video that surfaced earlier this week told us everything and nothing about what was to come. Inspired by Michael Jackson's "Black Or White" video, the video for RIYL track "Energy" features a string of strange and beautiful face-melds: of Drake and little kids, Drake and Oprah, Drake and Rob Ford, Drake and Floyd Mayweather, Drake and Benjamin Franklin, Drake and Obama, Drake and Justin Bieber, and so many more. Watch it for yourself above or on Drake's Connect page (how to find that). As Drake told Zane Lowe right before it dropped, "It's shocking, it's beautiful, it's a lot of things."
