Eminem fans work out Pete Davidson moment in new music video after being left confused over cameo

The SNL cast member's appearance in the video is for a very funny reason

Fans of Eminem were completely puzzled over the inclusion of Pete Davidson in the music video for his brand new single, ‘Houdini’.

Slim Shady might only be back for one last hurrah, but boy is it a big send off for the artist’s alter-ego.

Known for making cruel yet catchy rap lyrics, the blonde haired version of the rapper is set to go out in a blaze of glory with the upcoming album, The Death of Slim Shady.

The 51-year-old also opened the track with arguably his most famous melody: “Guess who’s back, back again? Shady’s back, tell a friend. Guess who’s back?” and repeat that last line a few more times.

There were a lot of controversial lyrics in Eminem’s latest tune though, where he seems to diss almost everyone close to him – including his own kids.

Dr Dre, record executive Jimmy Iovine – and even Megan Thee Stallion – were not spared among his disses too.

His words were reminiscent of some of Shakespeare’s work, saying: “But you can all suck my d**k, in fact, f**k them, f**k Dre, f**k Jimmy, f**k me, f**k you, f**k my own kids, they’re brats (F**k ’em)

“They can screw off (Yeah), them and you all (Uh).”

But apart from this, there was one moment in the music video that got fans talking – and that is the inclusion of Pete Davidson, who is seen driving a Lamborghini for some reason.

The comedian gets his moment to shine at the end of the music video, as Eminem is in a car with no driver, before Davidson pops out of nowhere and says: “Trust me, I’m a great driver,” to a horrified Em.

“Don’t worry, I just got my license back,” Davidson says, before crashing into multiple cars on the road as he bops to the beat with the rapper, even taking his hands off the wheel.

There’s a reason behind the driving jokes. (Universal)

Fans took to social media to express their confusion at the situation, with one user posting on X: “Why the f**k is Pete Davidson in the new #Eminem music video, love it.”

Another posted: “Eminem’s new song felt like an SNL parody and then Pete Davidson actually showed up”

And a third put: “Why is Pete Davidson everywhere?”

Well, be confused no longer.
