Two videos of Kate Upton are making the rounds online. One features her in a barely-there bikini doing the “Cat Daddy,” a dance that requires her to vigorously thrust her body this way and that. The other is a 2-minute long commmercial for Skullcandy headphones in which she follows a couple of NBA players to work and asks them annoying questions while they shoot hoops.
Guess which one is more popular?
Upton’s “Cat Daddy” video, directed by the notoriously raunchy photographer Terry Richardson, was so provocative that YouTube took it down, claiming it violates their policy on nudity or sexual content. (It’s still on Vimeo, where Richardson has a channel.) Dancing and bikinis are nothing new to Upton. She became famous after a video of her doing the “Dougie” at an L.A. Clippers game went viral, and she appeared on the cover of this year’s Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. But apparently the combination of her two talents is too much for the Interwebs to handle.
Upton takes a crack at comedy in the Skullcandy ad, called “Take a Supermodel to Work.” ”Did you watch ‘Space Jam?’” she asks Oklahoma City stars Kevin Durant and James Harden. They ignore her until they visit her place of work, where she’s wearing, you guessed it, a bikini.
