Katy Perry Releases Goofy Official Video For 'Swish Swish'

Adjust Comment Print

Katy Perry has today dropped the full video clip for rumoured Taylor Swift diss track 'Swish Swish', after an attempt to build anticipation for its release with a trailer earlier this week. Watch music video above. With a name like that, you'd expect the video to have a sports theme, and it does.

It doesn't take long for the game to descend into chaos, as confusing slapstick and a malaise of meme references quickly leave you perplexed as your thumb hovers over the home button.

There has been speculation that Katy Perry and Taylor Swift might be planning a big VMA surprise for their fans.

They have huge muscular players, an ace coach in the form of Terry Crews, and are scoring points left right and centre.

The setup is that Katy Perry is captain of a bad basketball team called The Tigers, populated with short, sweaty, and/or out of shape athletes played by a variety of social media celebrities and coached by Saturday Night Live veteran Molly Shannon.

The idea is that busy shoppers will happily allow artificial intelligence to sort out their shopping carts for them. In a bid to take on Amazon Prime, Google has joined forces with Walmart to create a new "Express" programme.

It seems there's still bad blood between the two with Swish Swish referencing their ugly feud, making it clear Katy's is not backing down.

Perry has repeatedly mentioned Swift throughout the press tour for her new album, "Witness", apologizing profusely in an attempt to make amends. Nicki Minaj is finally here, people, and it's downright hilarious. The timing of this is too impeccable, as it nearly coincides with the release of Taylor Swift's new single, "Look What You Made Me Do".

Anyway, don't miss this weekend's MTV Video Music Awards, where Katy Perry will bring her subtle comic charm to the role of host. The timing is admittedly suspect and presumably in response to Taylor Swift's recent announcement of a new single, which is expected to hit airwaves Thursday evening.

After all, the fifth line in Katy's song is: "Don't you come for me".
