One of the tweets read, “Woke up this morning to the news that Blake Shelton is the Sexiest Man Alive. RIP every sexy man in the world who died in the ‘Great Sexy Plague of 2017’ overnight. You will be missed.” In response, The Voice coach smirks at the camera.

Another tweet read, “Woke up and saw Blake Shelton is the sexiest man alive. Did a bunch of celebrities die or something last night?” Shelton laughs in response.

Shelton goes on to read another tweet, “Blake Shelton is sexy if you like a guy who’s always about to lean in and tell you about a hearty, healthy American dog food.”

Later in the video, the singer reads, “Blake Shelton looks like the dad in a drug commercial where they list off the side effects at the end while you watch him build a birdhouse.”

Shelton also reads his “favourite” tweet, “We may be living in a time of division and strife, but at least People Magazine has united us in our certainty that Blake Shelton is not the ‘Sexiest Man Alive.'”
