Sir Ian McKellan and Sir Patrick Stewart Recite Taylor Swift

Pop queen Taylor Swift seems incapable of putting a foot wrong. So much so that half of Hollywood appeared in the video for her latest sickeningly catchy release, Bad Blood.

However, she missed a trick with her casting list. Kudos to Kendrick Lamar for making the cut, but what the song really needed was an injection of endearing British talent, famed for their incredible acting and unmistakable dulcet tones.

We are of course talking about Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Patrick Stewart, who have thrown their hats in the ring.

Taylor Swift obliged them, because who wouldn't.

For now we’ll have to settle on listening to what could have been below. On repeat.
