In the video and the advert, Swift and Qualley each make foolish faces and dance awkwardly all through a elaborate venue sporting robes. Many of their dance strikes are related as properly.
Although the video and advert aren’t utterly an identical, they’re conceptually alike.
The video for “Delicate,” directed by her frequent collaborator Joseph Kahn, is about a global celeb — on this case, Swift — who all of the sudden turns into invisible to the lots whereas attending a elaborate occasion.
The thought of not being seen is so releasing for Swift that she joyously tears off a part of her lengthy robe, kicks off her sneakers and dances barefoot à la Maddie Ziegler-style by way of the venue, the subway after which in a metropolis avenue within the rain.
In Jonze’s advert, Qualley excuses herself from a elaborate occasion. Though she isn’t rendered invisible, the concept of leaving and discovering herself alone within the large venue is so liberating that she begins to crazily dance all through the area (and at one level, shoots lightning from her fingers, as a result of, why not?).
So far, no phrase from Swift or Kahn in regards to the commentary surrounding the similarities.
