Taylor Swift Stole Some Moves for New Video! See the Proof in GIFs

Clearly Taylor watched a lot of old movies and videos before shooting the "22" video! See what famous moves she copied...

Get excited, Taylor Swift fans! The pop-country superstar released the music video for her latest single, "22," on March 13. (Yes, she purposely chose the date because 13 is her favorite number.)

The light-hearted video features Swifty and her gal pals acting, well, 22. What it doesn't show is Taylor getting too close to any dudes. Of course, she's received a ton of flack lately for her lengthy dating history, so it's not surprising that she would choose now to release a video that's all about hanging out with the girls.

Because I'm a major Taylor fan (and I don't care who knows it), I've already watched the video about 37 times on repeat. And while it's certainly fun and catchy, it's not exactly original. So let's break down where Taylor may have gotten her inspiration from this time around...
