Taylor Swift’s ‘Trouble (Yelling Goats Remix)’ Is the Internet’s Finest Creation
Pop's man-eater gets an unlikely collaborator
Yelling Goats are not a hot new production outfit out of Tokyo. Yelling goats are the angst-riddled creatures afflicted with eerily human voices whose existential bleats were conveniently rounded up in a supercut that we hipped you to earlier this month. They are also the spirit animal of Frank Ocean’s partner in unlikely power-coupledom, Taylor Swift. Because, like the bovine caprine with its indiscriminate taste for an ever-shifting commixture of rubbish, the man-eating pop star gnashes ramshackle through romances. How fated it must’ve been, then, that the two majestic species met in a video mashup.
In the clip above, Swift’s unstoppable “I Knew You Were Trouble” gets the wubs knocked out of it as a savvy YouTube user replaces her bass-addled whoas with the desperate wahs of the so-called “Broken Goat,” a celebrity in her own right.
