Speaking on an actual episode of his show, Stern acknowledged the effort from Drake.
“He did this kinda interesting thing: instead of doing a press tour, he made up a fake press tour and released it. And then he even put out a clip of me interviewing him,” Stern said. “He edited himself in to look like he’s in our studio, and he’s answering questions from me using clips from a different interview. Drake did such a good job that the news outlets are reporting on it as if it’s real.”
