The advert also trended because it features a re-recorded version of Taylor Swift's 2008 single Love Story.

Revealing the about his thinking behind the humorous ad, Reynolds explained: "Match is responsible for bringing millions of people together and even in this dumpster fire of a year, people somehow found love on Match. We just imagined what a ‘2020 match’ would look like and this video was the natural, slightly warped result. Also this stuff gives me something to think about during the board meetings".
