    Taylor Swift this morning tweeted out a new ad for Apple Music, this time showcasing a playlist called "Friday Night Rocks!" recommended to the singer within the For You tab of the music streaming service.

    The new commercial plays out in a way similar to Swift's previous ad, which saw her lip syncing to Jimmy Eat World as she prepared for a night out. This time, however, she dances around her living room alone to the tune of The Darkness' "I Believe In A Thing Called Love."

    After the last ad, Apple Music head of content Larry Jackson confirmed that the company had created a series of commercials with Swift, and would continue a steady rollout of them, akin to the release of singles on a record.

    Now I know why Taylor Swift likes Apple. They provide her with an iPhone where the music doesn't sound like crap coming from the internal speakers.

    I love these ads! It's clever on Apple's part because it brings in interest and subscribers to Apple Music.

    I kept waiting for something to happen. Got nothing. I was expecting someone to walk in or that flat screen to fall on her head. Fail.

    Apple's recent adverts featuring d-listers leading tedious and fatuous lives are plain off-putting.

    Cut the mindless crap and the fashion rubbish.

    Fashion is transient. Style is permanent.

    Time to make products, services, and adverts that have style and class, not freaking lame fashion victims.

    Does anybody not believe her letter to Apple was a PR stunt? I wouldn't be surprised if it's something Jimmy Iovine cooked up.

    Wow. Even the ads from Apple under Tim Cook has taken a turn for the worst.

    I wish when I dance like no one is watching it would look that good (and choreographed). My dancing makes me look like I'm a fish out of water in its last moments of life.

    I've liked the majority of the ads, but this one just didn't do anything for me. It lacked the humor (or even purpose?) found in the other ads. The song from The Darkness was great (loved it when it came out years ago) but I'm not a Taylor Swift fan so maybe I couldn't connect with what Apple was trying to pull off here. I think that they could have done an add with broader appeal for less money.

    Waiting for the ad where she's dancing around, trips into cookie batter, Cookie monster mistakes her for a giant, odd shaped, cookie.

    I feel like Taylor is that psycho girlfriend that tells Apple what to do and they are scared of her.

    .... no one is watching.

    Also I find these celebrity endorsement ads a bit tacky.

    Sure, we used to have Jeff Goldbulm narrate them, but it's not like they invented a fake scenario where he has to audition for the Lost World in 10 minutes and he has no idea how he's going to set up his iMac on the internet in that short window of time.

    All hail the real CEO of Apple...

    Edit - In all fairness, no matter how cringy this is, it's very tactical because she has such a huge following.

    Edit 2 - I would love to dance like an idiot for a couple of minutes and earn millions.
