Everybody knows who Taylor Swift. Aside from the Kanye moment at the VMAs, Swift is known for her catchy and empowering hits that people the world over can’t seem to get out of their heads. She’s won plenty of awards, but what better way to honor the singer than to create GIFs combining the pop star’s music videos with pop-culture characters.
Seventeen contributors to the subreddit HighQualityGIFs got together and recently unveiled the visually enhanced masterpiece they had worked on together: a rendition of Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” music video, but with characters such as Rick and Morty from Rick and Morty joining her as she dances across the screen.
“This was just another dumb idea I came up with that snowballed its way into a pretty awesome project,” says Redditor heroOFwar, one of the creative minds behind the endeavor. The final product highlights how creative styles and interpretations can come together to produce one amazing piece.
heroOFwar describes how the project was actualized:
“This project was thrown out to a group of Original Content (OC) creators on imgur and reddit.
I originally was hoping to get four or five of us on this project and ended up with seventeen of us.
We divided the video down into section and each person was assigned a segment. Everyone was given full creative freedom with their clips with the single rule of not messing with the time allowed per clip.
This was a silly idea I had one night and I could not be more pleased with how it turned out.”
