Taylor Swift's 'Wildest Dreams' Gets a Wildlife Parody: Watch
Staff at Columbus Zoo have hit on a novel approach to gain Taylor Swift’s attention. They’ve reworked the pop star's safari-inspired clip for "Wildest Dreams" with the real thing.
The parody video runs for only about a minute, though it’s meticulous in mimicking the detail of Joseph Kahn’s much-discussed original.
The team at the Ohio attraction hope their best efforts will earn a visit from Swift herself when her tour rolls into town. Columbus Zoo’s director emeritus “Jungle” Jack Hanna appears at the end with a message for the artist. "I’ve been here for 37 years. Would you please come here so these girls would finally stop? For goodness sakes,” he says. “I know you were in Africa doing one of your songs -- it was spectacular, by the way -- here at the Columbus Zoo, you’re going to love this place. You really are.”
Swift's 1989 World Tour is due to pull in to Columbus, Ohio this Thursday and Friday when she plays the Nationwide Arena. Watch the Columbus Zoo clip below.
