We can probably cross off the possibility of Drake getting a tryout as an NFL receiver.
Twitter had a lot of fun with a short clip from Drake’s new video, “Laugh Now Cry Later,” which was shot at Nike World Headquarters and features many well-known athletes. It’s a lighthearted five minutes of noted sports fan Drake being schooled by stars like Kevin Durant.
One clip stood out, and it’s Drake running a route and catching a pass from Odell Beckham Jr. And “running a route” is kind.
‘Drake ain’t shakin’ salt’
OK, here you go. If there’s a limit to how many times you can watch this and not laugh, I haven’t reached it yet.

Oh my. That’s ... not good. If the clip itself isn’t funny enough, this was the line of the day (and there were many ... Twitter is savage).

“Drake ain’t shakin’ salt with this route” will be stuck in your mind for a while.
Don’t forget his airball
Aside from being a pseudo Nike commercial, the video poked fun at Drake’s lack of athleticism despite his fandom. Which brought to mind a real-life moment for the superstar rapper at Kentucky’s midnight madness in 2014.
Eek. So which was Drake’s most infamous athletic moment? His airball with Kentucky or whatever that route was in his new video?
