Katy Perry’s New Video Is Full of Sports Figures

Gronk, Karl-Anthony Towns and Bill Walton are just the beginning.

Katy Perry’s new single “Swish Swish” isn’t very good and the video is pretty goofy, but this isn’t a music site—we talk about sports and this video has plenty of sports. 

The premise for the video is that Perry captains a lousy basketball team that gets blown out by a bigger, more talented crowd before a halftime pep talk from Nicki Minaj. While there aren’t any actual basketball players running the floor with Perry and the gap-toothed kid from Stranger Things, there are a bunch of sports figures elsewhere.

Karl-Anthony Towns

I wonder if Gronk’s performance at Super Bowl media day in 2015 earned him this gig.
