Pop star Taylor Swift transformed into a man for her new music video which she wrote and directed. The musician's transformation could lead you to believe a man had been cast for the role due to the spot-on execution by the make-up team.

'The Man' in the video is an entitled and egotistic businessman who manspreads and smokes on the subway, chomps a cigar, urinates in an alleyway and plays aggressive tennis among other disturbing behaviours.

In the video, Taylor can also be seen on screen criticising 'The Man's' performance as she directs the music video.

"Could you try to be sexier, maybe more likeable this time?" she asks him. 

'The Man' is voiced by Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson.
