This Smooth Cover Turns Taylor Swift's 'Look What You Made Me Do' Into A Bond Theme

Postmodern Jukebox does it again.

Taylor Swift's new single "Look What You Made Me Do" has only been out for a week, but we already can't get it out of our heads. We're apparently not the only ones, as the song's music video broke a record for most YouTube views in 24 hours.

It's also taken no time at all for some amazingly creative takes on the song to debut. Earlier this week, we saw a group of talented dancers — and one T.rex — perform a routine by choreographer Kyle Hanagami. Now it's Postmodern Jukebox's turn to transform the song.


Postmodern Jukebox is known for taking popular songs from today and performing them in new styles — usually old-fashioned ones. We've heard them turn Britney Spears' "... Baby One More Time" into a cabaret tune, and put a jazzy spin on the Beauty and the Beast theme.

This time, singer Kenton Chen performs Swift's latest hit as if it's a James Bond theme song. "Less than a week after the world formed its love-hate relationship with the song, here comes PMJ's shaken, not stirred rendition," Postmodern Jukebox shared in a blog post about the cover.

Chen totally embraces the villainous persona portrayed in the song, and we can definitely imagine this rendition gracing the next 007 flick. We think one YouTube commenter summed it up pretty well when they wrote, "Omfg. Smooth!"
