It’s been 11 years since Jimmy Brooks graduated from Degrassi Community School and last night was the high school reunion we didn’t know we needed.

Drake, aka Aubrey Graham to all you Degrassi fans, dropped a video last night for his song “I’m Upset,” and e.v.e.r.y.o.n.e. from Degrassi was invited.

The video is a generous 6 minutes and 30 seconds long, directed by Karena Evans, who also directed Drake’s “God’s Plan” and “Nice For What.” It was like a mini episode of Degrassi, which was pretty much the 2000s version of 13 Reasons Why. It opens with Drake waking up on the Toronto Raptors’ Air Canada Centre court with a calendar alert that reads “High School Reunion Today at 9:00 PM.”

You’ll see Jimmy getting ready with none other than his best friend Spinner. You’ll see Paige, Ellie, Marco, and Craig roll up at this adult prom. Terri woke up from her coma! Jay and Silent Bob are smoking pot with Principal Simpson! Emma, Liberty, and Mia are doing choreography in the hallways! That rotten bastard Rick (aka the guy who shot Jimmy and put him in a wheelchair) gets chased down the hallway by Drake’s squad.

Stay tuned until the end for a special surprise in the last minute as the credits roll with the Degrassi theme song and side-by-side clips of the characters then and now. The glow up is real.

And the cast reactions are priceless, with throwback photos and emotional messages that are giving us all of the feels.
