Taylor Swift, who has been known as a snake and Regina George in sheep’s clothes prior to now, is now being known as one other offensive animal-oriented nickname — a copycat.
On Monday, the musician launched the video for her music, “Delicate,” and it didn’t take Twitter customers lengthy to level out that it appears fairly just like a virtually Four-minute advert Spike Jonze directed for Kenzo World fragrance in 2016 starring actress Margaret Qualley.
Many customers made the case by taking display grabs of each the video and the quick movie ― and putting them aspect by aspect.
Within the video and the advert, Swift and Qualley each make foolish faces and dance awkwardly all through a flowery venue carrying robes. A lot of their dance strikes are related as effectively.
The brand new @taylorswift13 Delicate music video is such an insanely blatant copy/rip-off of the Spike Jonze Kenzo World industrial. The setting, color palette, choreography, the whole lot.

Though the video and advert aren’t utterly similar, they’re conceptually alike.
The video for “Delicate,” directed by her frequent collaborator Joseph Kahn, is about a global superstar — on this case, Swift — who abruptly turns into invisible to the lots whereas attending a flowery occasion.
The concept of not being seen is so releasing for Swift that she joyously tears off a part of her lengthy robe, kicks off her sneakers and dances barefoot à la Maddie Ziegler-style via the venue, the subway after which in a metropolis avenue within the rain.
In Jonze’s advert, Qualley excuses herself from a flowery occasion. Although she just isn’t rendered invisible, the thought of leaving and discovering herself alone within the large venue is so liberating that she begins to crazily dance all through the house (and at one level, shoots lightning from her fingers, as a result of, why not?).
To date, no phrase from Swift or Kahn in regards to the commentary surrounding the similarities.
HuffPost reached out to Swift, Jonze and Kahn for remark, however didn’t obtain a response earlier than the publication of this text.
