Taylor Swift Video Shot In Cemetery
When you think of [lastfm link_type=""]Taylor Swift[/lastfm] the last thing you think of is a funeral, right? Well it may surprise you that her new video for the single Safe And Sound was shot in a cemetery.
How’s that for reality? The clip–which pays homage to the movie the song was written for, The Hunger Games–certainly is a departure for the usually upbeat superstar. Swift explained it this way: “It’s one of my favorite moments in the video; there’s this wide shot, where I’m just kind of crumpled up sitting on a gravestone, and it’s actually the gravesite of a couple who lived and died in 1853,” she noted. “I’m sitting here thinking, ‘What were their lives like?’ It’s really eerie, considering what the movie is about and how it deals with life and death. It just absolutely blew my mind.” I don’t want to spoil it for you so I’ll leave Taylor’s visual explanation for you to see yourself. The video shoot took place in something like 40 degree weather and Taylor said: “I was shaking the whole time and trying not to be shaking when the cameras were rolling.” Accompanying Swift on the track and in the video are the currently buzzy country duo the Civil Wars, who won two awards at the 2012 Grammys on Sunday and also introduced Swift’s performance at the show.
