This Arkells song is titled 'Drake's Dad' and features the man himself in the song's music video.

The Canadian rock band hails from Ontario, Canada, just as the Canadian rapper Drake does. It is only fitting that Dennis Graham, Drake's father, would feature in a Canadian's music video -- although most would assume it would likely be his own son's. The song was inspired by a meeting that the band had with Drake's dad in which they said he was quite gracious. Unsurprisingly, Graham agreed to feature in the music video for a song that was inspired by him and his relation to one of the most popular rappers in the world.

This music video happened based on pure chance and is a humorous way to gain attention for the band behind it.
