Kansas City Chiefs rom-com trailer spoof seems to reference Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce’s romance
The “Falling for Football” clip features a cameo from Donna Kelce, leading some to speculate that it was inspired by the pop star and tight end’s relationship.
The Kansas City Chiefs just dropped a new post-season promotional trailer that spoofs Tyler Hynes and Janel Parrish’s Hallmark rom-coms — and one of its cameos has some fans speculating that it was also inspired by Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce’s romance.
The trailer for Falling for Football follows a football fan (Hynes) caught between his love for the Chiefs and the love of his life (Parrish).
Narrated by comedian Rob Riggle, the story features its star-crossed lovers hitting a breaking point when Parrish finds Hynes fiddling with Chiefs merch in the shop where he works. “You’re not just a fan, it’s your livelihood!” she cries, giving Hynes an ultimatum. “It’s the Chiefs or me!” she demands. “I hate football!”
A flummoxed Hynes replies, “Come on, Amber… no one hates football.”
Nodding to the tropes of a classic Hallmark Christmas romance, the trailer later shows the couple finally finding love in each other’s arms — much like a certain Kansas City Chiefs tight end and his pop-star girlfriend.
Some Swifties spied Easter eggs scattered throughout the clip, like when Chiefs offensive lineman Creed Humphrey calls out “order number 13” at a local diner in one scene. That is Swift’s lucky number, which she used to write on her hand before concerts.
Also, in the aforementioned merch scene, Hynes is shown adjusting what seem to be friendship bracelets — which have been a big part of Swift’s Eras tour — in a shop.
