Friends and frequent collaborators Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran are celebrating their American Music Awards nominations with a little hike.

In a video posted to Taylor’s Instagram page, the two are seen on a hike together. Taylor ribs Ed a couple of times, first asking, “You OK, bro?” To which he responds by giving her the middle finger.

She later teases him about being out of shape, saying, “It’s called exercise. Have you ever done cardio?” She adds that guitar playing doesn’t count.

The two also talk about their nominations and the fact that they’re both nominated in the Favorite Pop/Rock Album category along with Drake. Taylor and Ed agree that they’ll probably be losing to Drake.

“Safe to say whoever wins the AMA for fav pop/rock album will be an artist who writes songs about love and heartbreak,” Taylor captions on the video, along with a crying laughing emoji. “YOU get to decide who it’ll be. Vote at the link in my bio @AMAs.”

The two are also up against Drake in the Favorite Artist of the Year category and will compete against each other in the Tour of the Year category. Swift is also nominated for two other awards while Sheeran has the potential to pick up a total of six awards.

The 2018 American Music Awards will air live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on October 9th.
