Timberwolves offers Taylor Swift the chance to borrow Jimmy Butler for the weekend

He's got the falsetto to make it as a backing singer.

Taylor Swift landed in the Twin Cities on Friday to play shows on consecutive nights at U.S. Bank Stadium – and she's been offered an unlikely backing singer.

Ok, so we're sure the Timberwolves aren't seriously offering up Jimmy Butler as a possible vocalist for Ms. Swift's stadium, but their tweet is still pretty darn funny.

It features a video clip (courtesy of Redditor cooperred) from Swift's hit "I Knew You Were Trouble," interspersed with Butler's high-pitched scream as he fell out of a canoe on a Minnesota lake last year.

Swift is playing the home of the Vikings on both Friday and Saturday night, while Butler ... well ... who knows if he'll be playing in Minnesota anytime soon.

In case you missed the moment Butler fell into the lake while on ESPN's Hang Time, check it out below.
