Taylor Swift 'Ours' Music Video Review
created this thread
It is hard to picture Taylor Swift not looking like her dazzling self, but in the new music video for “Ours,” the singer looks like a normal young adult. Audiences are used to seeing Swift look like the country music superstar she is but in the video Swift changes her appearance in order to match the music video storyline. Swift opens the video with herself heading to a normal 9-5 job. She enters into a crowded elevator and starts to sing. Swift is known for her ability to tell a story in her music videos and “Ours,” sticks to that template.
The audience sees clips of the love Taylor Swift is talking about. The lighting is romantic and the chemistry on screen can easily be seen between Swift and the mystery man. The video follows Swift during her day at the office where nothing seems to go right but throughout the video Swift is reminded of her one true love. The videos goes in between clips of the couple together being happy and Swift at work.
After the day at the office ends Swift boards a bus and starts to head home. The video ends with Swift getting off a bus and walking towards her love. The man walking towards Swift has just come home from serving in the army.
The simplicity yet beautiful tone of the song is captured in this simple yet emotional video. The video showcases what a beautiful love song Swift wrote and also how truly astonishing it is to have a man or woman united after being apart for so long. The video is a love song, but it also feels like a love letter to all of the military couples that are separated currently.
