Taylor Swift lip-syncs Jimmy Eat World in new Apple Music commercial

Posted on

What music do you listen to when you’re getting ready to go out? Tunes you were obsessed with in middle school, perhaps? Same for Taylor Swift, who stars in a new Apple Music commercial in which she lip-syncs Jimmy Eat World’s “The Middle” from 2001’s Bleed American.

“Oh my God. I love this song. I used to listen to this in middle school,” she says in a voice-over before applying lipstick and dancing in front of the mirror. Sorry, folks: she doesn’t fall off a treadmill while singing Future lyrics in this one.

Swift has been a documented Jimmy Eat World fan for years, and even performed “The Middle” with the band back in 2011 during her Speak Now tour.

They also covered “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” for an iTunes session in 2013.
