Taylor Swift shilled for smoothies middle school, apparently (Updated)

These days Taylor Swift is starring in ads for Diet Coke and Target, but she’s apparently long had a hand in endorsements. For example, Swift in an ad eighth grade project which touted “Paco’s Paradise Smoothies.”

The video was uploaded in 2008, but given a new life thanks to Reddit and the fact that Swift is an all-powerful singing entity these days. The description on YouTube reads: “Ad for Paco’s Paradise Smoothies for an 8th grade Investigative Studies project.”

Swift’s sole line is, “Would you like a drink from Paco’s tiki bar?” and then she turns and smiles at the camera. Though she is top-billed when the credits roll, her name is spelled incorrectly. Your move, “Talyor.”

Update: Alas, it seems the video has been taken down.
