Girls Recite Taylor Swift’s 2016 Acceptance Speech In Grammy Ad

Girls Recite Taylor Swift’s 2016 Acceptance Speech In Grammy Ad

When Taylor Swift won the 2016 Grammy for Album of The Year she took to the stage to slam people who undercut her success- a response to Kanye West’s claim he made Swift famous. To promote the upcoming awards, the organisation behind the Grammy awards have recreated the speech with young girls reciting parts.

The 70-second spot is by The Recording Academy and TBWA\Chiat\Day in Los Angeles.

“Music both reflects and advances culture, so we try to do the same with our annual Grammy Award brand campaigns,”  Evan Greene, chief marketing officer for The Recording Academy, said in a statement.

“Although most of the spots carry the message with humor, as a father of two young girls, it was important to me to also create something that would speak specifically to them—and all women—using music’s inspirational language to help them feel empowered.”
