We thought we were ready for it, but we were wrong. On Monday morning, Taylor Swift dropped a sci-fi explosion of a teaser for her upcoming music video for “…Ready For It.” It. Looks. Awesome.
Part Fifth Element, part Britney Spears’ “Toxic,” the teaser for “…Ready For It” literally shows more of Swift than we’ve ever seen. Wearing a naked bodysuit, Swift is a futuristic robot in one scene and an outlier on the run in a post-apocalyptic world in another.
Near the end of the teaser, Swift appears to be escaping soldiers as she runs towards the edge of a cliff with the words “They burned witches” spray-painted on the side. It another scene, Swift battles herself through a glass wall, with the naked Swift attacking the black cloaked Taylor. If there is one theme for Reputation, it’s that there’s no such thing as too many Taylors.
The new video is a bit of a surprising twist on a song that talks about beautiful islands, giving the impression that we were likely getting a beach video from Swift. But six albums in, one thing we should know by now is to always expect the unexpected from T Swizzle.
The full video is set to debut on Thursday, but for now enjoy this intense dive into an underbelly world set approximately 100 years in the future.
