The new Taylor Swift kills the old Taylor Swifts in her new video

However you feel about Taylor Swift’s new single, “Look What You Made Me Do,” the consensus seems to be that the teaser for her new video was a little too familiar. Specifically, a lot of people noted that the 20-second clip that she released seemed very reminiscent of Beyoncé’s “Formation” video, which wasn’t an especially good look for Taylor Swift. During MTV’s VMAs, though, Swift released the full video and now the fans and haters can all formulate proper opinions.


As it turns out, the thing is a bit more Thriller than Lemonade, with “the old Taylor” represented by a Taylor Swift zombie and “the new Taylor” as some kind car-crashing, bank-robbing, biker gang leader/snake queen who literally stands under a giant T as other versions of Taylor Swift claw at her. It was a lot like the scene in the first X-Men movie where Cyclops makes a joke about wearing yellow spandex, because he’s a cool dude who wears black leather in the movie instead of some goofy comic book costume, but with classic Taylor Swifts instead of the X-Men.
