Taylor Swift in the video for "Bad Blood."

In hindsight, this Taylor Swift parody was probably inevitable.

Quick update from across the pond, courtesy of MTV U.K.: "Cariad Lloyd and Jenny Bede have created a pretty (ahem) bloody brilliant parody version of [Taylor Swift's 'Bad Blood' music video]. Their purpose? To convince [British politician] George Osborne to get rid of the ridiculous 5% tax placed on very necessary women’s sanitary products, which are currently classed as 'non-essential, luxury' items."

They also note that a Change.org petition titled "Stop Taxing Periods" currently has over 242,700 signatures -- so people are pretty riled up about this, which means it's time for a parody video to educate the public.

Take it away, ladies.
