It's official, today is better than Christmas. I know those are strong words, but trust me on this one: I've seen Drake's new music video for "Childs Play," and it's everything fans expected... and more. Not only does it feature cameos from the Cheesecake Factory (I mean, "why you gotta fight with me at Cheesecake," this cameo was obviously meant to happen), Tyra Banks, and OB O'Brien, it also includes a few hilarious scripted scenes between verses — one of which includes Drake actually getting into a fight at the Cheesecake Factory. I mean, come on, how could this get any better?
Well... I guess if Banks was playing the girlfriend he has a fight with at the Cheesecake Factory, then it'd be better. Or, if Banks shoved a piece of Cheesecake Factory cheesecake in Drake's face, then poured a glass of red wine on him while stating in a mocking tone, "cheers, boo." If all that happened, I'm pretty sure this video would be the best it could be.
Well, good news: Luckily, that's exactly what happens in the opening scene of the video, along with a hilarious exchange that includes Banks clapping in Drake's face and yelling at fellow Cheesecake Factory patrons who just want to eat their delicious pasta in peace.
Drake himself dropped the video on his OVO site, and posted a link to the blog on his Twitter without any warning at 10:41 p.m. ET. Though it's hosted on Apple Music, it's available to stream even if you don't have an account — so don't worry, everyone will be able to experience the hilarity for themselves. There's no word on which Cheesecake Factory Drake and Banks filmed their scene in, but, according to Complex Music, there were rumors that Drake was filming the video at a Houston-area location back in July 2016. Wherever it was, I'm just glad we have confirmation from Drake himself in the video that the Cheesecake Factory location is "the nicest one of these" he's seen. I'm glad, you know? I just want him to be happy and eat his cheesecake in peace.
