Before he became the biggest artist on the planet, a 15-year-old Drake was cast to play Jimmy Brooks, a star high school basketball player who was shot by a classmate and subsequently wheelchair bound, on the Canadian television series Degrassi: The Next Generation.

Little did any of us know, however, that four years earlier, an 11-year-old Drake actually began his acting career by starring in a satirical commercial for the made up Martin Brodeur vs. Ron Hextall table hockey game, which was created for and shown at the 1997 NHL Awards program.

Earlier today, hockey writer Sean McIndoe found this amazing clip on YouTube while researching for the awards and yeah, this fake Drake laugh is everything.
