Jimmy Eat World praise Taylor Swift after recent Apple commercial

"She is 100% that awesome of a person you suspect she is”

Apple Music recently released two Taylor Swift commercials, with the latest seeing the singer mime along to the Jimmy Eat World 2001 hit ‘The Middle’.

Jimmy Eat World have returned the love, taking to Instagram for a special #tbt. Frontman Jim Adkins shared an image of the time appeared with Swift when her show stopped in his home state.

Taking to the stage to play ‘The Middle,’ Adkins remarked “I made a joke at soundcheck about how rising from the middle of the arena in smoke and lights wouldn’t help any more people know who this dude with a guitar was.

“She chose the bridge of the song to stop and get the crowd to make me blush. Yes, she is 100% that awesome of a person you suspect she is.”

The first commercial saw Swift rap along to Drake and Future’s ‘Jumpman,’ which saw sales of the single go through the roof, with Drake’s iTunes sales jumping by 431%.

The number of plays for Apple Music’s curated #gymflow playlist shown in the commercial also went up by 325 percent, making it the No. 5 playlist of the week, reports Adweek.

Apple Music launched in June 2015 and recently surpassed 11 million subscribers. The streaming service simultaneously launched in over 100 countries in June, and while Spotify remains the clear market leaders in terms of subscribers, the service has made rapid inroads in signing up paid listeners.
