Taylor Swift Goes Full Mad Men in New “Babe” Music Video
The video takes place in the ’60s in a Mad Men-like realm. Jennifer Nettles, who sings the song, plays the loving wife of her businessman husband. The husband, played by actor Brandon Routh, isn’t so loving.
While Jennifer stays home cleaning the house and preparing dinner, Brandon heads to work. That’s where things start to get dicey.
Instead of playing the woman scorned, Taylor has turned the tables and channeled her best Joan Holloway. With her red hair and form-fitting dress, the Mad Men influence is clear. And if you’ve seen the show, you probably know what’s going to happen next.
Things aren’t looking too good for Jen. Once T.Swift makes her way to the husband’s office, you know things are about to go down. His willpower proves to be no match for the fiery redheaded maven’s charms.
The character’s certainly a different look for Taylor. And, as it turns out, the whole video was her idea. After originally penning the song for her album, Red, Taylor decided to give the song to Sugarland and perform backup vocals. Jen revealed to People that the singer called them up and explained her vision for the accompanying video. They went full-on with the Mad Men concept and even filmed on the actual set of the hit TV show.
So, what do you guys think about Taylor’s new look? Should she switch it up and become a redhead or stay with her iconic blonde?
