6 Questions About Drake's 'Hold On We're Going Home' Video

Didn’t you expect a dance breakdown?
The nostalgic breakbeat is just begging for one. Couldn’t Drake have taken this opportunity to put down the automatic weaponry—it’s unintentional comedy, anyway—and instead square off in a dance battle in which the only thing murdered is some sucker’s ego? Splurge on a Michael Jackson hologram, while you're at it.
If this takes place in 1985, why is Drake driving a third generation Range Rover?
The whole 80’s theme—from the rotary phones (seriously, how long is that cord?) to Scarface suits—is checking out just fine. And then our Toronto-born 80s baby rolls up in a back-to-the-future SUV built 20 years later. He would’ve been better off pulling up in Marty McFly’s DeLorean.
Where did A$AP Rocky go?
Now you see him, now you don’t. A$AP Rock is in tow with Drake’s goonies once they arrive at the mansion, but once the guns go doot-doot-doot *Kendrick Lamar voice* he’s nowhere to be found. Is he housesitting? Or maybe there’s was no room in the post-2000s Range Rover. He should’ve lapped up with the rat in the crew—dude is getting killed anyway.
Why does Drake have silver tears on his ski mask?
Drake wants you to know he’s a killer—but only when it’s chilly out. Something tells us those tears have more to do with lost exes than any kind of body count.
How did they all escape unscathed?
Drake and his crime mob come through five deep and presumably have a good ol’ Metal Gear Solid shootout ‘til dawn. And aside from the snake who takes a permanent nap on the sidewalk, Drake and his homies all escape unwounded—even after an explosion lifts everyone in the vicinity. Can someone at least limp away?
Who is Ashley Moore (and where can we see more of her)?
Drake isn’t the only Northern knight in shining armor to save this princess. The bad-as-a-two-year-old vixen was recently seen eating lunch with Justin Bieber in real life. Guess there’s something about Canadians.
