Ever think about Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton's relationship and wonder, "Huh, how'd that happen?" Them too, apparently. The couple teamed up with their Voice co-star Adam Levine for a Super Bowl LV ad for T-Mobile that poked fun at the unexpected nature of their relationship.

In the hilarious clip, Stefani can be seen FaceTiming with Levine telling him she'd ready to meet a guy. But due to a spotty connection, her relationship requirements get a bit muddled, leading to Levine setting up the No Doubt singer with the country star.

The ad even shows fans a glimpse of their "first date"—spurs and all. It's proof that while opposites might attract, it's not always at first sight. Watch the spot for yourself.

The commercial was one of the big game's most memorable ads, with Twitter lighting up over the couple's willingness to troll themselves. Others though found the premise a bit confusing: was the ad claiming the couple had broken up (or never been together to begin with)? Or that if you wanted to find love, you shouldn't use T-Mobile?

For anyone concerned, the couple apprears to still be happily engaged. They began dating in 2015, and have since released several songs together and spent most of the pandemic quarantining with each other.
