As you know, yesterday Taylor Swift broke the internet with the release of her insanely NUTS BALLS "Blank Space" video and everyone lost their collective shit. Mostly to our utmost amusement. So today we'd like to join in the conversation and offer up our own take on exactly what the thought process was behind this visual mindf*ck. We believe that Miss Swift has finally and wholeheartedly embraced the sage wisdom of everyone's favourite fun-loving hard rocker Andrew W.K. and decided once and for all to "party hard".
Think about it. She wears an excessive amount of ballgowns while wielding knives, harboring exotic pets, riding a bike in a mansion and smashing up a ton of shit. Not to mention making the exact same lost-your-mind-crazy-eyes face that Andrew W.K. coined. Yeah, he owns that face Taylor. So if this video isn't a perfect homage to the king of partying himself, we don't know what is.
In an attempt to prove our thesis, here are a collection of stills from Swift's epic video re-imagined as conceptualizations of Andrew W.K's signature "PARTY TIP" tweets. You're welcome.
