Drake is somewhat of a rap magician. He can snap his fingers, drop an extensive and intense new album, and appear at the top of the music charts while setting online streaming records. And just like at a magic show, no one in the audience is quite sure how the 31-year-old pulls off these tricks.
But in this instance, the musical marvel became the amused audience member. Drake had a fantastic reaction to London-based magician Julius Dein’s magic trick in a crowded nightclub. According to his Twitter bio, Dein is a magician and social media entrepreneur who promises he can teach anyone how to read people’s minds in just 60 seconds. You might remember him from that time he trolled a bunch of festivalgoers with fake Apple AirPods.
This time, using just a lollipop and a simple question about Drake’s favorite superhero, the magician pulled off a seriously impressive stunt, and the musician’s reaction has the entire internet laughing our collective asses off.

We expect Drake’s priceless reaction will spawn another reaction meme. Someone’s already gotten the ball rolling by replacing the lollipop with a pregnancy test:
If only Dein could make this rap beef disappear too.
