Taylor Swift awkwardly impersonates Lady Gaga, Skrillex, Fergie and Gwen Stefani in the music video to her 2014 mega hit Shake it Off, taken from the equally successful album 1989. The song scored a People's Choice Award the following year, but on YouTube, it actually has fewer hits than Masha And The Bear.
Tay Tay has a habit of going all-out for her music videos, a trend that has seen her become a YouTube sensation in her own right, as well as a pop star. Check out Bad Blood and Look What You Made Me Do for some of her better efforts.
Fun fact: The video to Shake it Off was directed by Mark Romanek, the same filmmaker who helmed the Robin Williams movie One Hour Photo.
