The Many Music Video Personas of Taylor Swift, From Ballerina to Stalker

All Tay's roles in one handy supercut

In the new video for her ultra-poppy “Shake It Off,” Taylor Swift takes on many roles: a b-girl, a cheerleader, a rhythmic gymnast… the list goes on.

This multitude of T-Swift characters inspired The Daily Dot to create one big supercut of ALL her music video personas. Some are very clear-cut (chemist, princess, office worker) while others are a bit more conceptual (Appalachian ingénue, Old Navy spokesmodel, Zooey Deschanel in New Girl.)

The video includes 40 personas in total. It’s going to be impossible to pick your favorite.
