2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards: Every Look from the Red Carpet

It seems that wherever Taylor Swift goes, backlash follows.

Taylor Swift dropped her new music video for "Delicate" Sunday night, and by Monday morning, Twitter realized the video looked a little too familiar.

So familiar, in fact, people were citing three different videos they noticed similarities to, including two Britney Spears music videos and a Spike Jonze-directed commercial.

Since the latter is, in our eyes, the most undeniably similar, we'll start there.

Spike Jonze's Kenzo World Perfume Ad

As many people were quick to point out, Swift's video is strikingly similar to a 2016 commercial that Spike Jonze ("Her") directed for a Kenzo World perfume ad, featuring "The Leftovers" actress Margaret Qualley. In both videos, both girls are in formal attire at formal events before they break out into sporadic dance that no one around them can see. They also both make very similar "funny" faces throughout the videos.

Britney Spears' 'Lucky'

Other critics noticed that Swift's "Delicate" also strongly resembles two of Britney Spears' music videos. The first one -- "Lucky" -- shows Britney visibly unhappy about life in the limelight, dreaming about normalcy/invisibility, which is exactly what Swift gets in her new video.

But just because some fans saw similarities, doesn't mean they're complaining.

Britney Spears' 'Overprotected (Darkchild Remix)'

The second suspected Spears ripoff -- "Overprotected (Darkchild Remix)" -- shows the pop star dancing in a hotel lobby, which looks almost identical to the one in Swift's video. Brit's video also ends with her dancing in the rain on an abandoned street -- just like TayTay's.
