Taylor Swift & Travis Kelce Appear as Sims in Los Angeles Chargers Schedule Release Video

Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce took over the Sims world in the Los Angeles Chargers’ creative new NFL schedule announcement video, which is full of Easter Eggs referencing big moments from throughout the football season.

At one point in the clip, released on Thursday (May 16), Sims versions of Travis Kelce and his brother Jason Kelce are recording an episode of their New Heights podcast, when Taylor Swift appears at the door waving to her boyfriend Travis. The “Karma” singer and the Kansas City Chiefs tight end then hop on a private jet and head to their next destination.

The scene is fitting, as Kelce has been jetting around with Swift during the European leg of her massive Eras tour. Travis attended Swift’s final Paris concert at La Defense Arena on Sunday (May 12), where fan cameras captured him dancing along to the show with suitemates Gigi Hadid and Bradley Cooper. 

The video also playfully clapped back at Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker, who went viral for his misogynistic comments during his commencement speech at Benedictine College in Kansas Saturday (May 11). In response to his claim that being a homemaker is “one of the most important titles of all” for women, the LA Chargers responded by having him fittingly working hard in the home kitchen in the Sims world. “For the ladies present today, congratulations on an amazing accomplishment. I want to speak directly to you briefly, because I think it is you, the women, who have had the most diabolical lies told to you,” Butker began at one point during his 20-minute speech. “How many of you are sitting here now, about to cross this stage, and are thinking about all of the promotions and titles you are going to get in your career?”

He continued, “Some of you may go on to lead successful careers in the world, but I would venture to guess that the majority of you are most excited about your marriage and the children you will bring into this world. I can tell you that my beautiful wife, Isabelle, would be the first to say her life truly started when she started living her vocation as a wife and as a mother. […] Isabelle’s dream of having a career might not have come true, but if you ask her today if she has any regrets on her decision, she would laugh out loud without hesitation, and say, ‘Heck no.’”
