Taylor Swift Goes on Safari in the Glamorous ‘Wildest Dreams’ Video

Subscribe to Y101, Today’s Best Music on

If you thought Taylor Swift went big with her previous videos, she takes it to another level with “Wildest Dreams.” And after all the hype, she finally premiered the video on the 2015 MTV Videos Music Awards tonight (August 30).

Directed by Joseph Khan, who she worked with on “Bad Blood” and “Blank Space,” the video goes back to the days of Old Hollywood. Taylor rocks a brunette coif as she plays a starlet, who’s in love with her co-star, played by Scott Eastwood. Filmed in a number of breathtaking locations and also includes some wild extras including elephants, zebras and giraffes. Taylor even casually sings next to a lion.

“We just wanted to something so wildly different than we ever did before, and I hope people like it,” Taylor told Kelly Osbourne after her video premiered.

Taylor also looks stunning in whatever she puts on. With a number of costume changes, she especially shines mustard gown that flows in the wind as she belts out her emotions.

As the lyrics lay out, the romance doesn’t necessarily stay happy as the two get into arguments while filming the movie. Although there are clips of the the couple getting passionate between the sheets as well as going on a romantic plane ride, the visual ends on a sad note. Taylor and Scott both attend the film premiere separately, but Taylor makes a quick exit during a romantic scene. Her leading man runs after her, but it’s too late. Taylor gets into her car and rides off — leaving Scott alone.

While the video is its own mini movie, Taylor has a bigger and more charitable plan for “Wildest Dreams.” Possibly inspired by the killing of Cecil the Lion, the clip ends with a message that says, “All of Taylor’s proceeds from this video will be donated to wild animal conservation efforts through the African Parks Foundation of America.”

Mission statements aside, the video is another strong and beautiful effort from Taylor.
