On Monday, the musician released the video for her music, “Delicate,” and it didn’t take Twitter customers lengthy to level out that it appears to be like fairly much like an almost 4-minute advert Spike Jonze directed for Kenzo World perfume in 2016 starring actress Margaret Qualley.
Many customers made the case by taking display screen grabs of each the video and the quick movie ― and putting them facet by facet.
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 properly.
Though the video and advert aren’t utterly an identical, 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 all of the sudden turns into invisible to the plenty whereas attending a flowery occasion.
The thought of not being seen is so liberating 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 by means of 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 is just not rendered invisible, the concept of leaving and discovering herself alone within the enormous 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?).
Thus far, 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.
