2015 VMA: Taylor Swift debuts new music video for "Wildest Dreams"

Minutes before she joined Nicki Minaj to open the 2015 MTV VMAsTaylor Swift dropped her new video for 1989's "Wildest Dreams" online.

The video, another collaboration with "Blank Space" and "Bad Blood" director Joseph Kahn, shows a brunette Swift floating around the savana and acting in an Out of Africa lookalike film. Her leading man this time is The Longest Ride actor Scott Eastwood (son of Clint).

"Wildest Dreams" is a romantic getaway song, so perhaps the "let's get out of here on the nearest unicorn" vibe was to be expected. Now all we need is for Swift to welcome a giraffe or two to the stage on her next stop on the 1989 World Tour.
