Swish Swish, the video (not a parody)

Other than Taylor Swift news, Katy Perry dropped the video for “Swish Swish” also on Thursday…

Okay, fine, it’s probably a coincidence that Taylor dropped the karma-filled track “Look What You Made Me Do” on the same day Katy dropped her supposed come back track at “Bad Blood,” total coincidence! I agree.

“Swish Swish” got Katy Perry or Kobe Perry to team up with a number of celebrities for an out of this world basketball game, seriously. The video looks like a parody to the video itself in the sense that Katy incorporated a number of memes and edits along with a lot of comical elements.
From the names of the players, to coaches Terry Crews and Molly Shannon whose head explodes while the other is reading a “How To Basketball” booklet, respectively, through to Ninki Minaj three outfit changes in the span of seconds, the visual for “Swish Swish” is hilarious and somewhat befitting the song in a very self-depreciating, yet entertaining way.
