Drake’s bar mitzvah-themed music video for “HYFR,” featuring Lil Wayne and a particularly inspired chair-lifting scene, won Best Hip Hop Video at last night’s MTV Video Music Awards. Even better, Jewcy favorites Rashida Jones and Andy Samberg presented him with the award (it feels like only yesterday Jones and Drizzy were reportedly dating!). Mazels all around, people.

Drake, who took the stage with Wayne, Nicki Minaj, and that guy from the video who looks like he went to your high school, spoke earnestly about his Jewish roots while clutching his brand new moonman statue. “The video is about being me, being black and Jewish,” he told the crowd before dedicating the award to anyone out there “who’s ever had a long walk home by yourself.”

Aw, Drake!
