Taylor Swift Plays a Corporate Drone Pining for Her Beau in ‘Ours’ Video
Pop-country superstar Taylor Swift has just been crowned Woman of the Year by Billboard — but don’t think she’s resting on her laurels. She’s still hard at work promoting her massively successful 2010 album ‘Speak Now,’ and now she’s just released the video for her latest single, ‘Ours’ — and it’s a thoroughly adorable clip that fits perfectly among Swift’s other crushingly cute videos.
In the clip, Taylor plays herself as a bored corporate drone sleepwalking through an average day: awkwardly riding the elevator (along to the lyrics “Elevator buttons and morning air”), and dealing with the average frustrations like an out-of-order copy machine and cliquey girls in the break room. Admittedly, she looks more flawless and glowing than any office worker we’ve ever seen, but we’ll cut her a break.
Throughout the clip, the only thing keeping Swift sane is dreaming about her handsome beau (played by ‘Friday Night Lights’ dreamboat Zach Gilford), about whom she reminisces while watching video of the two of them together, enjoying fonder times. There’s even a kitten (!), although it doesn’t appear to be Taylor’s real-life feline friend, Meredith.
At the end of the video, she rides the bus home, where she’s reunited with her boyfriend — who comes out wearing Army fatigues. Plot twist!
Gotta love that Taylor Swift — not only is she cute as a button, but she supports our troops, too. Let’s hope that their fictional relationship stays solid, so she doesn’t have to write a devastating ballad about him.
