Drake’s Casting Call for His “Energy” Video Is Insane
A casting call for Drake's "Energy" video first posted in April surfaced. The alleged casting director, Ashley Hallian, posted it on her Facebook page. Whether or not the post is real has not been confirmed as yet, but if it is, this will be one interesting video.
According to the casting call, the video will be divided into three "different vignettes with Drake in the mix." The three scenes include an “awkward Drake family portrait,” \a shot of Mayor Drake Ford who's seen in a parking garage with a drug dealer, and lastly "Drake the Model," where Drizzy's face is imposed on a model's body. To fill the roles of these characters, the director was seeking a lookalike for Canadian politician Rob Ford to play "Mayor Drake Ford," "chubby kids" for the awkward family photos and a ton of extras. If this casting call is real, fans can expect a pretty interesting and rather funny video. A few weeks ago, Drake posted a photo of Rob Ford on his Instagram page. It seemed a little random at the time, but giving the news about the casting call, perhaps he was dropping clues. Check out the casting call below.
"Energy" is featured on Drake's recent offering, If You're Reading This, It's Too Late. The mixtape recently landed a number two spot on the Top 10 album sales list of 2015 so far, coming in at 1,431,000 copies sold.
