Kawhi Leonard had an awkward, hilarious cameo in Drake's new music video.

He didn’t say “what it do bay-bee,” but Kawhi Leonard was still able to make his mark in Toronto pop culture yet again.

With the new release of “Certified Lover Boy,” Drake also debuted a new music video to accompany the first single off his sixth full-length album, “Way 2 Sexy”. And of course, the Fun Guy himself had to make a cameo.

The entire video goes through dozens of scenes, referencing popular movies, covers of romance novels, jazzercise videos, and others. But the cherry on top of it all has to be a two-time NBA champion and Finals MVP awkwardly shuffling in the background while on top of a massive white sand dune.

At first you don’t notice him in the background, just playing a supporting role next to Drake, Young Thug, and Future, but in the middle of a well choreographed scene that closely resembled something peak Backstreet Boys would release, the trio of artists all turn and point directly at Kawhi for his close-up.

While the shot was just a couple seconds long, Leonard’s confusion and wallflower-esque shock of attention has already spawned reactions on Twitter.

Even his NBA peers are getting in on the hilarity.

Leonard recently re-upped with the Los Angeles Clippers on a four-year, $176.3-million contract, so his summer is only getting better by being in a Drake music video.
