Kate Upton’s New Tennis-Themed ‘Love’ Magazine Advent Calendar Video Is Frickin’ Weird

You know how every December Love magazine releases a new video each day until Christmas (and usually several days after), featuring famous women – mostly models? Sure you do. And if not, you do now.

Anyway, this year has been no different as so far Love magazine has put out videos starring such luminaries as Emily Ratajkowski, Kendall Jenner, Madison Beer, Gigi Hadid and her sister Bella, Hailey Baldwin, Stella Maxwell, and many more.

December 19th was, you guessed it, DAY 19 for what they call their “advent calendar” of videos. The star of Tuesday’s video was none other than Sports Illustrated swimsuit superstar and recently married model, Kate Upton. (Or is it Kate Verlander now? I’m going to need some clarification on this at some point.)

As you will see in the video below, this year they decided to go with a tennis-themed photo shoot for Upton’s video. A tennis-themed photo shoot where she’s wearing what appears to be a bathing suit, high heels, and oddly enough, a winter scarf. (I will never understand fashion.)

Now I don’t know if Upton actually plays tennis or not. And after watching the video, I still don’t know. Because while she does appear to have a decent backhand, I am pretty sure they just got one good shot of it and looped it in a couple of different times.

Upton is quoted at the end of the video, saying, “Love advent is a great Katie grand tradition. It’s silly and fun, and I love shoots where I don’t have to take myself too seriously.”

So then I take it the SI Swimsuit Issue is not one of those shoots.

Check out the entire super bizarre video below and see if you can figure out what the heck is going on.
