Drake has a great reaction to an older couple who have absolutely no idea who he is

Drake at the Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Houston Rockets game this week.

Drake is one of the most famous people on the planet. The “Way 2 Sexy” rapper was No. 4 on Spotify’s most-streamed artists in 2021 and is the 27th most popular human being on social media with more than 192 million followers.

His massive fame and sheer number of huge hits earned him the number 12 spot on Insider’s list of Best Canadians of All Time. That’s quite the honor, too. He’s even ranked higher than William Shatner from “Star Trek” and actor Seth Rogen. That’s truly rarified Canadian air.

Drake is also a huge NBA fan and is a regular sight at Toronto Raptors games.

On Wednesday, he was in Oklahoma for the Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Houston Rockets game, sitting courtside to support fellow Torontonian, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander of the Thunder.

Before the Rockets were ready to hit the court, a camera crew posted up in front of Drake and he responded with a nonchalant peace sign. Sitting to Drake’s left was an older couple who didn't understand why he was getting so much attention.

In the video, it appears as though the gentleman asks Drake, “Are you famous?” and the woman to his left who appears to be his wife, adds, “Who are you?”


It’s unclear what Drake said to the couple, but he was all smiles when he explained why people were paying so much attention to him. After talking to the couple, he motioned the camera crew to get some footage of them.

After that, Drake took things a step further by posting a photo of them on his Instagram stories. Now, they’re famous, too.

"My new parents," wrote the rapper, sharing a picture with them.

The video is a wonderful reminder that even some of the most famous people in the world aren’t known by everyone. Even a person like Drake has to explain who he is to from time to time. It’s fun to see that Drake got a kick out of people being genuinely curious about who he is and what all the fuss is about.

Plus, it must be nice for him just to be treated like a normal person from time to time instead of always being the center of attention.

Drake has always been known as the “nice guy” of rap and this video proves that the image may actually be true.

Drake has a long history of charitable giving. He gave $200,000 to J.J. Watt’s charity to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey in 2017. He’s also donated money to schools, homeless shelters and an Ohio woman who lost her five kids and boyfriend in a fire in 2013.

Here’s a cute video of Drake waving hello to a man’s daughter at the game on Wednesday night.

Every holiday season, millions of kids send letters asking for everything from a new bike to a pony. Some even make altruistic requests such as peace on Earth or helping struggling families around the holidays.

But wouldn’t the holiday season be even more magical if our pets had their wishes granted, too? That’s why Chewy Claus is stepping up to spread holiday cheer to America’s pets.

Does your dog dream of a month’s supply of treats or chew toys? Would your cat love a new tree complete with a stylish condo? How about giving your betta fish some fresh decor that’ll really tie its tank together?

Or do your pets need something more than mere creature comforts such as life-saving surgery?

U.S. Soccer star expertly handles an Iranian reporter’s loaded questions about race.

Tyler Adams’s response proves exactly why he’s the captain of the US soccer team.

Tyler Adams expertly handles Iranian reporter's question

Reporters are supposed to ask the right questions to get to the truth but sometimes it seems sports reporters ask questions to throw you off your game. There's no doubt that this Iranian reporter who was questioning Tyler Adams, the US soccer team captain at the press conference during the World Cup had an agenda that didn't involve getting to the truth.

It's not clear if the questions were designed to throw the young player off of his game or if the goal was embarrassment. It really is hard to tell, but Adams handled the unexpectedly harsh encounter with intelligence and poise when some may have found it justified for him to get angry.

Idaho pet squirrel amazingly thwarts a would-be burglar in resurfaced viral video

The suspect was identified by the scratches the squirrel left.

Idaho pet squirrel thwarts a would-be burglar.

Ahhh, yes! The attack squirrel. Every home should have one, or at least, that's what an Idaho man whose home was protected by his rescue-squirrel-turned-pet might think. Adam Pearl found Joey, his pet squirrel, in his yard, abandoned as a baby and unable to fend for himself. Pearl took him in and bottle-fed him until he was big enough to eat on his own.

The unique pairing continued for 10 months until a man looking to burglarize Pearl's home got the surprise of a lifetime. He was attacked by the squirrel! The fluffy-tailed critter thwarted the man's plan to rummage through Pearl's belongings.

One can only imagine the confusion and terror of being attacked by something that would've gently eaten out of Snow White's hands. The burglar was apparently after the homeowner's guns and likely wasn't expecting a squirrel to go, well, nuts on him. It gets even better though.

Three different types of blood donations.

The AIDS epidemic that began in the early '80s cast a stigma on all men who have sex with men, regardless of their HIV status. The idea that gay and bisexual men were somehow dangerous to the general public because of a health crisis in their community added to the stigmatization that already came with being LGBTQ.

In 1983, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) banned all men who have sex with men from donating blood. This rule stood until 2015 when the FDA lifted the lifetime ban for gay and bisexual males and limited it to men who had homosexual sex within the past year.

In 2020, the FDA eased restrictions on men who have sex with men again, due to a blood shortage caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The abstinence period was shortened from a year to three months.
