Taylor Swift has released the official music video for her song “The Man,” the first video that she has directed by herself.
In the video, Taylor transforms into a man while dressed in prosthetics, a wig, and facial hair. At the end of the clip, her speaking voice is provided by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
The man who Taylor plays is essentially the character Leonardo DiCaprio played in Wolf of Wall Street, and she name checks the actor in the lyrics. One scene gives a nod to Serena Williams, who came under fire at the U.S. Open in 2018 for her reaction to a referee. The scene shows “The Man” launching tennis balls at a referee played by Swift’s father.
