Just over seven years ago, when Taylor Swift's 1989 album was first released, the prospect of starring in one of Taylor's music videos existed only in our wildest dreams. But if there's a will, TikTokers will find a way. Now, creators on the app are making their teenage dreams a reality with the "Wildest Dreams" TikTok trend, which essentially turns Taylor's "Wildest Dreams" into the backing track of their own music videos using TikTok's Slow Zoom effect. The trend started gaining traction on #SwiftTok in September 2021 and even garnered the attention of Taylor herself, prompting the release of "Wildest Dreams (Taylor's Version)" for fans to enjoy. Is she the gift that keeps on giving? Yes. Not only did the songstress release her re-recorded version of the track, but she even hopped on the TikTok trend herself, teasing Swifties with a potential (un)surprising Easter egg. (Feel free to dissect in the video's comments section for yourself.)

As always, Taylor knows how to make her fans feel special, and the "Wildest Dreams" TikTok trend is your chance to relish in that main character energy. If you're interested in joining in on the "Wildest Dreams" trend, here's an easy how-to:

How to Do the Taylor Swift "Wildest Dreams" TikTok Trend:

  • Save the audio of "Wildest Dreams (Taylors version)," so you can easily access it when you film your video.
  • Record your video in two segments. In the first, act casual. In the second, channel as much confidence as possible while lip-syncing "Wildest Dreams." Staring down the camera is not required, but it certainly helps.
  • Before recording your second half, make sure you use the TikTok Slow Zoom effect. Then, post it to your feed!

Remember, you can interpret the "Wildest Dreams" trend however you want. But, if you need some inspiration, or you're still confused as to what the heck it's all about, keep reading to see the way other TikTokers are making this trend their own.
