Elite Gymnastics Gives Grimes a Birthday Gift: A Taylor Swift Cover

Well, this is pretty adorable. Tomorrow, March 17, appears to be Claire Boucher’s birthday, the singer/songwriter/producer you know as Grimes. And, her boyfriend James Brooks, aka Elite Gymnastics, has given her what any young girl would want: a cover of Taylor Swift’s “Ours.”

And, it turns out pretty great from where I’m sitting. Brooks nails that Ben Gibbard on a sad day for The Postal Service vibe, and, it all comes across very romantic and sweet. With all that Grimes dealt with in the last few months, at least her dude seems pretty smitten.

Check out Elite Gymnastics performing his take on Taylor Swift’s “Ours” for Grimes’ birthday on their tumblrs or below.
