Taylor Swift Believes In A Thing Called Dancing To The Darkness For Apple Music

Things Taylor Swift believes in: squads, corny MySpace photos, love.

In her latest Apple Music commercial, the human embodiment of “Dance Like No One’s Watching” sets aside her Jimmy Eat World and Drake albums to dance like no one, except an entire camera crew, is watching to the Darkness’ 2003 hit, “I Believe In a Thing Called Love.” She hops around her (?) office (??), and generally acts like Britney Spears singing “Open Your Heart” at the beginning of Crossroads, minus an appearance from Dan Aykroyd.

If nothing else, the ad shows us what else T-Swift has on her “Friday Night Rocks!” playlist (which, weirdly, isn’t available on Apple Music). There’s “Seven Nation Army,” “Sweet Child o’ Mine,” the Black Keys’ “Lonely Boy,” and the solid one-two-three punch of “Chop Suey!” by System of a Down (that’s Taylor’s alarm clock song when she needs to WAKE UP). She’s also got “Smooth Criminal” by Alien Ant Farm,” and “Rollin’ (Air Raid Vehicle)” by Limp Bizkit on there. That’s funny, I always took her as a “Rollin’ (Urban Assault Vehicle)” kind of girl.

It’s not all fun and games, though. There’s a secret conspiracy in the clip to get Swift’s biggest fans to buy more Apple merchandise.

Taylor Swift: The Darkness fan, bad role model.
