While we’re used to seeing him everywhere, Drake’s latest appearance is still unusual — turning up in a proposal from NYC’s Parks & Recreation Department. Drizzy appears in his Degrassi: The Next Generation form — the character of Jimmy Brooks — whose wheelchair-bound appearance quickly became a meme.
The proposal itself focused on improving the parks in Brooklyn, including a set of features to help make the area more accessible to everyone. The department has decided to use the image on page 52 of the proposal, which mentioned a planned wheelchair ramp entrance to Fort Greene Park.
The department’s assistant commissioner of communications, Sam Biederman, later gave the following quote to Pitchfork: “Started from the bottom of Fort Greene Park’s signature hill, now we’re here with the final design, which takes care to create a more welcoming park entrance with improved views.”
It’s been a week of slightly bizarre news for Drake, who also recently added a tattoo of Mo’ Better Blues-era Denzel Washington to his collection.
