Cat Velez - 1st Dec 2015

Allie Avital's lighthearted pop confection for The Knocks' I Wish (My Taylor Swift) sees Matthew Koma waking up after a night out, finding that his dreams have come to life, as dozens of Taylor Swift lookalikes in negligees multiply and take over his apartment.

With the Taylor-alikes jumping on the bed, posing for the camera and hanging out in a bathtub full of pink lemonade, it suggests that Koma is still possibly in a coma. But then comes the twist, as true dream girl appears, looking slightly less like T-Swift...
