It may look like Drake is practicing for the first time he lights the vanilla candles and lets Taylor Swift get familiar with his emergency brake. Get your head out of the gutter! But if anything, he’s probably practicing his moves for when Taylor turns to him and whispers “Let’s get hyper on extra-syrup Shirley Temples and make up a dance routine to S Club 7.”
During the AMAs last night, Apple premiered Drake’s latest grasp for attention in his ongoing maybe-relationship with Taylor Swift. Just like Taylor, Drake shot a sooo goofy commercial for Apple Music. Taylor’s was called Taylor vs. Treadmill, and Drake’s is Drake vs. Bench Press. While attempting to get Australian outback-levels of buff, Drake lip-syncs to Taylor’s Bad Blood.
Taylor held up her end of the PR bargain by posting Drake’s commercial on Instagram with the caption: “Yes @champagnepapi #drakevsbenchpress“. This commercial may be Drake and Taylor’s way of confirming there actually is something between the two of them (poor Doris). Or it’s just a stunt to get Drake, Taylor, and Apple some attention. I guess we’ll never really know!
That commercial is a bit of a reach though. I know Drake loves to cosplay as hard, but popping to Bad Blood was a bit much. If the video for Hotline Bling has taught us anything, it’s that Drake is definitely more of the Zumba-to-Shake It Off type.
