Drake is everywhere. We are all Drake. And Drake is everyone, as we can see in his video for “Energy,” released exclusively on Apple Music on Friday.
This music video now exclusively holds the title as both the greatest and worst achievement in Photoshopping on Earth. It’s weird, uncanny and unsettling. And for a song about having mortal enemies, it makes little sense and is thus amazing.
All it is: Drake’s superimposed visage on top of the likeness of celebrities like Oprah Winfrey, LeBron James, Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus.
It starts innocently enough.
But it’s here, about 30 seconds into the video, that you begin to wonder what’s happening. That looks like Oprah’s set but that’s not Oprah.
That’s definitely not Oprah.
But that looks like Tom Cruise. ::Maniacal Tom Cruise laugh::
“Drake, what are you doing lol?” you ask yourself.
You begin to wonder if Drake is okay in the head.
Are you okay in the head?
“DRAKE?!” you yell out to the universe.
You realize this is the future of humankind.
And suddenly, these strange images begin to make sense.
But then you’re like “What?” again.
Please, stop it.
What are you doing?
WHAT ARE YOU DOING.
This is not that bad...
Then again, you start to get it.
And finally you see. It’s Drake.
