Have you seen the “Anacoda” video yet? Basically, it’s the flip side of Sir Mix-a-Lot’s “Baby Got Back” – a confusing message of female empowerment and sexual objectification that is both a tribute to strong, sexual women and a tirade against skinny bitches in clubs. With Nikki playing bongos on girls’ booties. Lighthearted, sure, but fraught with such disturbing subtext.
But what really struck me was Drake. At the end. The rawness of his reaction. This is a man in the throes of an existential crisis, a man trying desperately to navigate the politics of the lapdance. You see his need, his shame, his manhood laid bare. “What am I doing?” he seems to be asking “How did this happen? How do I react? Is it OK if I pop a boner?”
Below, the “Drake Is Having a Breakdown, Guys” meme and random GIFs from the video. If you haven’t seen it already, do so, please and tweet me @JSJdarling and lets talk about Drake.
