Some wisenhammer got the bright idea to bring back rapper Drake’s first on-screen character, Jimmy Brooks, from Degrassi: The Next Generation, with a clip featuring Kevin Hart’s head superimposed onto another character.
The 15-second short, in which Drake’s character, Jimmy (before his character became paralyzed), took on a bully on a basketball court, was a preview of last night’s Celebrity All-Star Game, which took place in Toronto, Drake’s home town.
Hart, who came out of “retirement” to coach (and play on) Team USA, didn’t even shake Team Canada coach Drake’s hand as the night began.

It all went downhill for Hart’s team from there.
As Team Canada took a 9-point halftime lead, Hart actually suited up, coming out of “retirement” to an incredulous Drake saying, “Is that legal? Is that legal?” But alas, Canada held on for 74-64 win.
It was antics galore for the whole game.
