Katy Perry dropped her newest music video, "Swish Swish," on Thursday morning, and it's a basketball extravaganza fit for sports fans and casual spectators alike. 

The video pits Perry's team of basketball misfits (including Stranger Things's Gaten Matarazzo and Glee's Jenna Ushkowitz) against a buff and intimidating wolf-themed team (which appropriately includes Game of Thrones actor Hafþór Júlíus “Thor” Björnsson).

The sight of the other team is enough to make anyone sweat, but Perry's group manages to pull off a win with a little help from Nicki Minaj, who has the biggest cameo of anyone.

When Perry gets hit in the face with a basketball, Minaj emerges from blue flames on the court to rap and let Perry know she needs to "get it together" to win the game. We're really digging the pseudo-fairy godmother vibes from Minaj in this one.

As if that weren't enough star power, Molly Shannon and Terry Crews also appear as basketball coaches, while the cheerleading squad was full of cast members from Glow.

Go big or go home.
