The Best Parodies and Covers of Taylor Swift’s ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’
Much like it was intended to, that screaming goat video really got us thinking. Once we made our way out of a pretty heavy existential crisis, we decided to see if anything could come improve Taylor Swift‘s ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ more than the sound of an angry goat screaming. Here’s what we found.
Screaming Goat Edition
Here it is — the video that mashes up Taylor’s hit and an angry goat that set us on this magical journey. It’s pretty great, right?
Taylor Swift feat. Nicolas Cage (!!!)
Swallow whatever you’re eating or drinking before you press play.
Sophia Grace & Rosie
Awwww. Remember this duo from ‘Ellen’? They’re adorable. Plus the lack of processing on the vocals really highlights how dumb the lyrics are. The only thing that could make it better is if Sophia Grace forgot to use her microphone too. Oh, Rosie. You’re a good hype kid at least.
Walk of the Earth feat. Krnfx
Aside from the amazing abilities of the internet’s favorite a cappella group and their beatboxer, we like this one because it looks like it was filmed in the creepiest living room in America.
Motion Activated Paper Towel Dispenser Edition
Much like the screaming goat edition, only significantly more absurd.
It’s a kid rapping a Taylor Swift song. Do you not have a heart? Just ignore the fact that he’s kind of annoying.
Best Cry Ever
If the original isn’t depressing enough, here’s a version featuring the best cry ever.
‘Arrested Development’ Edition
Perfect. Now someone do one with the family “chicken dance.”
I Knew You Were Trouble Goat Edition 1 HR Continuous Mix
Hands down the best one of all, it spares us all the pesky trouble of having to click replay over and over for an hour. You’re welcome.
