Equipped with their own vintage airplane and real-life wild animals, the video is a “Love Story” of sorts for Swift, in hopes that she’ll visit the zoo later this month while she’s in town on tour.
“We all love Taylor Swift and when we heard she was coming to Columbus two nights we wanted to do something creative to get her to see what we love, the zoo!,” Brannon Rapp, an Animal Programs Specialist in the video, told ABC News. “Jen thought, let's recreate the wildest dreams video in our heart of Africa exhibit... I mean we even have a plane!”
The keepers wrote on Facebook, “Taylor Swift, make our WILDEST DREAMS come true by visiting the Columbus Zoo! #1989TourColumbus #zooglamsquad.”
Hopefully the singer doesn’t leave a “Blank Space” in their hearts and will actually show up, perhaps with Scott Eastwood who could swap roles with Jungle Jack Hanna!
The zoo’s clever recreation has garnered nearly 85,000 views and nearly 3,000 likes on Facebook.
