Day Eleven: Time to Break Down Drake’s Appearance in the “Fuckin’ Problems” Video

by Tom Noonan

Today, in anticipation of his new album LONG.LIVE.A$AP , A$AP Rocky dropped the video for his heavy-hitter feature “Fuckin’ Problems”.  The video itself is a barrage of women dance-lounging and 2 Chainz close-ups shot in a “Friday Night Lights” shaky-cam turned all the way up.  Everything is pretty normal but then Drake decides to show up.

All right, so I can’t see his face yet, but that’s definitely Drake.  He’s got his lips fixed in that half-rap/half-singing thing.  This isn’t too bad, pretty standard all-black-everything outfit.  Everything is going smooth so far.

Ok, now I’m certain it’s Drake.  Sad faced delivery of vindicated rhymes: check.

Uh-oh.

Who let Yair Marx in here?  Shouldn’t he be doing the macarena on a boat or offering up his wife to movie stars?

Now his outfit seems to be taking control of his extremities.  It’s like that glove Dr. Strangelove wears only infinitely more insane.  I’m not sure what the design is on his t-shirt, but I’m assuming it’s a cry for help, like that guy who blinked Morris Code in his POW video.  I’m not sure how much more of this I can take.

Ok, good, he’s back.  Full on “Worry ’bout your old girl” Drake snarl.  This was too close.  Would somebody close to the situation please give Aubrey a call and make sure he’s doing alright.
