Part cat, part unicorn apparently

Part cat, part unicorn, the creature is a mythological version of her beloved pet cat Olivia Benson – who’s name is inspired by the character from Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.

The commercial is for a new streaming service called DirecTV Now. In it, Swift rides the caticorn through a forest and spreads pixie dust as she goes. You can watch the commercial and the caticorn in action below.
