The Changing Taylor Swift Effect

Yep, I’m going to talk about Taylor Swift again. I like her. More about that here if you’re so inclined to find out why.

For years now, this thing called the Taylor Swift Effect, has had many of the rest of us who aren’t teen girls, running for cover when it happens. But with her latest mega hit, it’s changing. No more crying it seems, but empowerment for everyone even if they’re not a teen girl:

Okay, so yeah, maybe this guy would make some teen girls cry by watching this video. I just laughed and thought, “You go, guy!” And really, how many of you have done this? C’mon, I know there are a few out there.

Segue: you know Richard Armitage does this; lip sync that is. Wouldn’t you love to have that video!


  1. Taylor Swift is a phenomenon, and deservedly so. She actually has talent, intellect, and heart. She is a philanthropist and isn’t afraid to think for herself. At least that’s what I gather from the little I’ve read about her.
    Have you seen what she does for some of her fans at Christmas?
    She doesn’t seem to use her body as her biggest marketing tool, for which I respect her tons. Can’t say the same for a lot of female singers of similar fame levels.

  2. I agree with much of what you’ve said but didn’t know about her philanthropy. I’ll have to check it out.

  3. She should invite this guy to a concert! I love it at 1:52 when he stops jiggling (reluctantly, lips still moving a tiiiiiny bit) while someone crosses the road in front of his car!!!

  4. I get such a kick out of somebody getting into the music! Good moves too! Love it!!

  5. I played it twice in a row and posted it on my Twitter and Facebook accounts – love it! He is a terrific lip singer and has great musicality. I’m still smiling. Thank you for sharing this! :)

    Watch this and give yourself a moment of happiness.
