Remember Apple Music’s commercial featuring Taylor Swift rapping along to Drake and Future’s “Jumpman” that ended with Swift face-planting a treadmill?

The one-minute ad lifted Drake’s iTunes sales by 431% in less than a week, and brought the Canadian hip-hop artist firmly into music’s mainstream.
