Behind the scenes of Taylor Swift's "Look What You Made Me Do"

In a new video, Taylor Swift gives a behind-the-scenes look at just how her team created the mountain of fighting Taylors for the “Look What You Made Me Do” video. Swift immediately admits the set is “the trippiest thing” she’s ever seen in her life, and rightfully so as she introduces herself to the actresses after they’re already in various Taylor Swift era costumes.

Swift is obviously having fun meeting her former selves. “Seeing all of them together is the weirdest feeling but it’s awesome. It’s exciting. It’s like, 'Oh that’s a phase I went through when I was 16, but like, a girl is wearing it who looks just like me,” she says, adding, “But we’re having a great time. We’re all just chatting about life. That’s gotta look weird.”

Wearing her new-and-improved “You Belong With Me” Junior Jewels t-shirt, Swift flips through images of her various eras with director Joseph Kahn deciding who will fight who. “Ring master circus girl should totally be fighting because she has a hat… and sparkly dress ‘Fearless’ long hair curly with 13 on her hand, boots, should be fighting. Can I hit her in the face with my 13? Cool,” Swift quickly decides before going overboard with her fighting skills, accidentally flinging the hat off.

When Kahn gives Taylor quick instructions to be graceful while filming the falling scene, she quips back, “I mean, I have to actively try not to be graceful. I don’t know if you’ve ever met me before.”
