Taylor Swift walks barefoot through 7th/Metro Center station in new video

Mike de Marko behind the woman in red

Or does it? Swift explores this possibility in the playful and charming new video for "Delicate", which debuted at the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards on March 11.

On Monday, the musician released the video for her song, "Delicate", and it didn't take Twitter users long to point out that it looks pretty similar to a almost 4-minute ad Spike Jonze directed for Kenzo World perfume in 2016 starring actress Margaret Qualley. The singer also gets to be invisible in her music video and dances like nobody is watching.

Jonze's Kenzo video featured Margaret Qualley ducking out of a glitzy gala to go choreographically berserk.

In Swift's video, the pop star, who becomes bored with being interviewed by the press, also makes amusing faces in the mirror before realizing she is invisible.

The video shows off the very best of Swift and what endears her to her legions of fans - the ideal of a goofy and real person that always manages to fight its way up through her veneer of celebrity.

"Taylor Swift's "Delicate" MV is a complete rip off of Spike Jonze's Kenzo advert with Margaret Qualley".

Set mostly in Los Angeles' Millennium Biltmore Hotel - built in 1923, it was the early home to the Oscars ceremony - the video also sees Taylor run through Metro Center, which is Los Angeles' downtown hub, and of course the Golden Gopher where she is finally seen again.

So far, no word from Swift or Kahn about the commentary surrounding the similarities.
