‘s music video for his song “I’m Upset” is anything but upsetting for “Degrassi” fans. In fact, tons of them are gushing on Twitter because it reunited the cast.
The music video portrays a Degrassi Class of 2007 reunion, and as such, it features numerous stars of the Canadian teen drama series from the early 2000s. Drake, who starred on the show himself as Jimmy, is joined by Nina Dobrev (Mia), Shane Kippel (Spinner), Stacey Farber (Ellie), Adamo Rugguiero (Marco), Lauren Collins (Paige), Jake Epstein (Craig), Christina Schmidt (Terri), Andrea Lewis (Hazel), Melissa McIntyre (Ashley), Linlyn Lue (Ms. Kwan), Stefan Brogan (Archie), Ephraim Ellis (Rick), Jake Goldsbie (Toby), Marc Donato (Derek), Dalmar Abuzeid (Danny), AJ Saudin (Connor), Miriam McDonald (Emma), Cassie Steele (Manny), Sarah Barrable-Tishauer (Liberty), Paula Brancati (Jane). The video even includes actors Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith, who played fictionalized versions of themselves on the show.
The music video’s reunion really brought “Degrassi” fans back, as their tweets show. Basically, it was nostalgia overload — especially once the theme song played at the end.
When Drake’s video ended with the Degrassi theme song tho

The nostalgia jumped out. I’m emotional. Kris Jenner works hard but Drake works harder. This man is so strategic.

Drake doing an entire Degrassi themed video is an example of someone giving the people what they want.

If only Drake would spearhead a push for a “Degrassi” revival series or movie next. Based on the tweets we’ve seen, fans would be all for it.
