One of Toronto’s most distinctive eateries is now the setting for an upcoming video featuring Drake and Rihanna, who were spotted filming in the city’s Real Jerk restaurant last night.
While onlookers looked on from the outside of a perimeter, a crew of what are presumably backup dancers were seen exiting a school bus, while Rihanna was reportedly spotted being dropped off at the restaurant in a black Mercedes transport van.
Global News cameras captured Drake pulling up in the passenger seat of a black Rolls Royce Wraith:
While reps for the restaurant have neither confirmed nor denied the duo are shooting a video there, the Real Jerk Twitter acccount announced the restaurant would be closed on Friday, presumably to accommodate the video shoot.
