You have to show props when props are due, and the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium deserves the utmost for their parody of Taylor Swift's "Wildest Dreams" music video.
Since Tay Tay is set to bring her 1989 World Tour to Columbus later this week, the zoo has released their own take on the safari-based clip. However, maybe the whole point of the video was to get the pop star's attention and plead for her to visit the attraction point.
At the end of the video, "Jungle" Jack Hanna, who has been a part of the zoo for 27 years said, "Would you please come here, so these girls would finally stop for goodness' sakes? I know you were in Africa doing one of your songs. It was spectacular, by the way. Here at the Columbus Zoo, you're going to love this place. You really are."
If you needed some convincing as to how spot-on their recreation to the Joseph Kahn-directed visual is, look no further.
Evidence #1: That Amelia Earhart realness
Evidence #2: Lions and legs, y'all
Evidence #3: Grace and sheets
