The parking lot of the Real Jerk, located across from a No Frills on Carlaw, drew a steady stream of curious onlookers this afternoon. The lot was closed off with a freshly erected fence and windows of the restaurant were covered.

The two artists started filming together in early January, but it looked like they'd be doing some work in Toronto after a local casting director held an open audition in Riverside to find 60 dancers for an undisclosed Drake and Rihanna music video.

Some fans are excited to see Rihanna and Drake filming in Toronto, while others are worried The Real Jerk is going to raise its prices now that it's even more famous.

Rihanna released her latest album ANTI on January 28 and Drake, of course, appears on "Work." The two mega-stars previously collaborated on "Take Care" and "What's My Name?"
