Before hitting play on Katy Perry's new "Swish Swish" music video, please understand you'll feel like you're on drugs when you watch it. 

The video starts with a minute-long pregame show with real-life announcers Bill Walton and Rich Eisen at a weird basketball game between the Sheep and Tigers. All of the players are wearing wrestling singlets. 

Famous actors Terry Crews and Molly Shannon are the coaches. The players include a bunch of famous people, including "The Mountain" from Game of Thrones and Gaten Matarazzo of Stranger Things. Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski also shows up. 

And then, at the 6:05 mark there's an appearance from Timberwolves star Karl-Anthony Towns. 

How KAT got in a Katy Perry music video is a mystery. 

For all we know, he could've won a spot in the video by auditioning as a dancer.
