Katy Perry's "Swish Swish" Video Includes a Nicki Minaj Halftime Show and Your Favorite Insta-Famous Pug

Swish, swish, pug.

KatyCats around the world are surely squealing with joy, as Katy Perry has released her music video for "Swish Swish," the anti-bullying anthem that's definitely, maybe about Taylor Swift. Unfortunately for thirsty gossipmongers, the video makes absolutely no references to Taylor and instead, begs the viewer to focus on how a basketball game between the Sheep and Tigers plays out.

There's a lot to digest from the video, including a star-studded cast led by Molly Shannon, Gaten Matarazzo from Stranger Things, Terry Crews, and The Mountain from Game of Thrones. Doug the Pug, famous for his adorable, topical, and highly entertaining Instagram account, also makes an appearance in the video, and the only problem with his guest spot is that his screen time is quite limited. The video's runtime is more than six minutes, but again, so many guest stars! It's okay buddy, you still did a great job.

Another highlight of the video is of course Nicki Minaj, who descends from thin air to deliver a fake halftime show and give the Tigers a quick pep talk. You can pretty much guess how the game goes from there.
