This is getting good now, Taylor Nation.

The amazing music video for Wildest Dreams just premiered before the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards. The setting is the romanticized golden era of movie making. The scenario is Africa. Our girl is the lead actress in an adventure film. She has adopted a bit of a classic air here. I know this might be a stretch, but she has a slight resemblance to a young Elizabeth Taylor.

Her leading man, played by Scott Eastwood, is the classic hero with stoic jaw. That’s not an accident, he’s the youngest son of actor Clint Eastwood. The video, which is basically a mini movie about a movie is directed by Joseph Kahn. You might remember him from Blank Space.

It shares some likeness with Blank Space. The characters are different, but it does seem like they could exist in the same universe. That classical fantasy-like hollywood world that we romanticize about from classic movies. I did love the video for its elegant surroundings and lavish sets, but I loved it even more for the final message. All of Taylor’s proceeds from this video will be donated to wild animal conservation efforts through the African Parks Foundation of America.

Coming up in the Calendar!
