Taylor schools the NFL
And Marvel finally getting to work on the X-Men
What to know
Taylor Swift is having a wild effect on the NFL… You know what's hilarious to me. The NFL just got absolutely schooled. The league has spent God knows how much money on marketing games to children. They did a slime-filled broadcast of the super bowl on nickelodeon. And Sunday they're going to broadcast a game in the Toy Story universe. This is real. The Jags and Falcons game is going to be live animated ok Disney+ "live from Andy's room" and Duke Caboom is going to perform a stunt at half time. Putting aside the fact that Andy never had a Duke Caboom toy, so when does this take place canonically? The NFL only needed to turn to one person to bring over the youths, specifically young women, and her name is Taylor Swift. Ratings are up. Ticket sales are up. Kelce jersey sales are up. Also his podcast is topping the charts and he gained 300,000 Instagram followers. This woman is giving the NFL and the Chiefs so much free press I hope they at least send her a fruit basket. All the slime and little green aliens in the world couldn't match this might. The woman has already rescued the October box office. Boosted the economy. And politicians are even saying she's going to impact the election. Maybe we should just put her in charge of everything and let the Swifties lead us into the future. 🎸
