Drake Films Funny or Die Skit to Battle Anti-Child Slavery
Drake has filmed his first 'Funny or Die' skit in support of the Real Men Don't Buy Girls campaign, which aims to raise awareness about child sex slavery worldwide.
During the skit for the viral video website, the Young Money rapper and former 'Degrassi' actor encounters a peculiar robot on the street. As the robot beckons to him, a cautious Drake hangs up a phone call, approaches the robot and then proceeds to punch him directly in the face.
The peculiar short is part of an ongoing video series to support Ashton Kutcher and wife Demi Moore's Take A Stand Against Child Sex Slavery campaign, through their DNA Project. According to the couple's site, "Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher founded The Demi and Ashton Foundation (DNA) to raise awareness about child sex slavery, change the cultural stereotypes that facilitate this horrific problem, and rehabilitate innocent victims."
Additional celebrity participants in the campaign include 'Hangover' star Bradley Cooper, who recently filmed his own viral video for the Real Men Don't Buy Girls campaign.
Drake is currently at work on his sophomore album, 'Take Care,' a follow-up to 2010's 'Thank Me Later.' On Monday (April 11), a photo of Drake in the studio with Pharrell Williams began to make the Internet rounds, stirring up speculation that the N.E.R.D frontman might be set to appear on Drizzy's upcoming album.
