This slowed-down, 19-minute version of ‘Shake It Off’ will give you nightmares
Will she… ever… shake it… off?
The Taylor Swift PR machine has been working overtime to make sure we’ve been thoroughly swabbed. Taylor Swift is everywhere and nowhere. Taylor Swift has always been here. Your next thought is Taylor Swift.
Sometimes you just have to slow down and take it all in. Specifically, a slowed-down, 19-minute version of Swift’s recent Jimmy Kimmel Live performance. YouTuber Mark Blackwell—who informs us this is, indeed, art—produced the most terrifying version of it, slowed down to one-fifth the speed. In this context, Swift’s hater-free pop anthem becomes a plodding, bleak spectacle that sounds almost as if the song is disintegrating. Will she… ever… shake it… off?
Warning: Side effects of ingesting Taylor Slow have been known to include night blindness, phantom limbs, and gluten allergies.
