Taylor Swift should have known there was trouble when she walked into the set of her latest Delicate music video, which social media users claim bears striking similarities with a popular perfume commercial directed by Spike Jonze.
It’s not the first time Swift has drawn bad blood with the internet for possibly ripping off creative work. Just last year, her music video for …Ready For It? was dubbed a “whitewashed” copy of Ghost in the Shell.
In Delicate, the pop icon’s unglamorous facial expressions and bizarre dance moves undoubtedly amused fans. Her uncharacteristic disposition, however, also raised some eyebrows; netizens later not-so-Delicately pointed out that it resembled KENZO’s advert for ‘KENZO World’. Only, Swift’s version had “worse dancing.”
“Taylor Swift’s Delicate video is a poor man’s version of Spike Jonze’s ad for KENZO,” remarked Twitter user ‘wtfcylon’.
If you thought these parallels were it, you could be living in your wildest dreams. Others have compared Delicate with Britney Spears’ Lucky—which centers a starlet smothered by the pressures of fame—and Overprotected—which ends in a dance under the rain in a deserted street—though the sentiments aren’t as full-blown for these theories.
See some similarities below. Will you be able to shake them off?
