Courtesy of Ryan Reynold's Maximum Effort production company, the Match dating site has a hilarious new ad.

With the tag line "Make 2021 your year," a character, named 2020, meets her match – Satan – in a reference we don't quite think needs explaining. The two meet up, and obviously hit it off, to Taylor Swift's Love Story playing in the background.

"So, where are you from?" 2020 asks, to which Satan responds: "Hell."

"Me too," 2020 says.


On that Taylor Swift note, the singer's Love Story is one of her first re-recorded songs, reports People – you'll remember the singer promising fans she'd be re-recording all six of her albums after Scooter Braun sold off her masters. Fans also couldn't help but notice an Easter egg in the video made by Taylor's close friend, Ryan – a fallen Scooter on the ground next to a dumpster fire. Check it out at the one 1 minute 13 seconds mark.
