Taylor Swift Video Accused Of Ripping Off 2016 Commercial
Taylor Swift’s latest video is being called a “rip-off” of a 2016 commercial directed by Spike Jonze.
Similarities between Swift’s “Delicate” video and the ad for the Kenzo World fragrance are being noted on social media, where people are sharing frame-by-frame comparisons.
Gina Schreuder tweeted that “Delicate” is “such an insanely blatant copy/rip-off of the Spike Jonze Kenzo World commercial. The setting, colour palette, choreography, everything.”
“Are there no original ideas anymore?,” asked Molly Crabtree on Twitter.

The Kenzo ad shows Margaret Qualley appearing in a crowd at an elegant hotel, making funny faces in a mirror and dancing.
There has been no comment from reps for Swift or "Delicate" director Joseph Kahn, an award-winning director of commercials.
