Taylor Swift Music Videos If I Had Directed Them
I am available for consultations, Taylor. I respect your artistic vision but here are some alternatives for when time travel is perfected.
- •Love StoryA loose re-interpretation of Baz Luhrmann's "Romeo + Juliet," slightly-toned down for a more PG audience.
- •You Belong With MeBehind-the-scenes documentary from when Taylor took that rando to his prom. This would later be scrubbed from the Internet when she got ~famous~ big time.
- •MineSame as the existing video, but with fewer filters and without the pictures on strings in the forest.
- •We Are Never Ever Getting Back TogetherTaylor is in a phone booth and she has HAD IT with the boy in question. Sort of a play on Super (Wo)Man and she flies out of the booth and up into the sky.
- •MeanBegins as a segment of "Celebrities Read Mean Tweets" but devolves into a music video. Ends as an anti-cyberbullying PSA.
- •I Knew You Were TroubleJust update with videos from Taylor at Coachella.
- •22The same but there's one small clip where Taylor's drinking from a bottle that ~could~ be (root) beer.
- •RedVERY LITERAL. Taylor drives a Maserati down a dead-end street, does a crossword with no answers, etc. Same literality applied to color palette.
- •Shake It OffA mob of people dancing; Taylor is revealed to be ONE OF THEM at the end. Becomes a "Where's Waldo" meme.
- •Blank SpaceThe existing video is 💯 but I have some other ideas. Taylor has a very long scroll and quill pen, writing on a list throughout the video. Would like to see her on a yacht at some point. Would keep the bit of her attacking an Aston Martin with a golf club, standing on top of a horse, etc.
- •StyleWe have two options here: stitched together footage of Harry Styles OR digitally splicing Taylor into old movies with James Dean. Maybe some hybrid of both.
- •Bad BloodI would insist on more explicit allusions to Katy Perry. Sponsored by Band-Aid.
- •Wildest DreamsBegins with a stethoscope on Taylor's heartbeat. She is being treated for heartbreak. We zoom into her eyes; fade into dream sequence. Taylor leaves the crowds of NYC for lonely beach mansion with a man WHO IS ALWAYS SHROUDED IN SHADOW. We end with her and the stethoscope.
- •Out of the WoodsTaylor dancing with Harry Styles analogue in a house. Scary trees visible through the window. Taylor flees into the night and runs through a forest of trees planted in straight lines.
- •New RomanticsBegins with 1989 Taylor on the back of a vinyl record, which someone (the modern-day Taylor) puts on. We are transported to a land of pastel pink and green. Loose approximation of the lyrics transpires. Ends with Taylor smilingly coyly at the camera, her face partially pictured like the 1989 cover.
