It's hard to imagine that in Taylor Swift's "Wildest Deams" she'd ever deem herself a copycat, but that's exactly what fans are accusing her of after watching the music video for her song, "Delicate".

There's already a bunch of easter eggs hidden in the video, but now a new theory from fans has surfaced on social media.

Other hidden moments include references to the track's song title and it's positioning on the album, track number five.

Could this be Joe Alwyn in Taylor Swift's new music video?!

Taylor open, she's not shy about her feelings and emotions.

It apparently came about online amid feuds with celebrities including Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris and performer Katy Perry.

Taylor scooped the gong for Female of the Year at the awards show on Sunday and thanked fans in a pre-recorded acceptance speech before introducing the debut of the Delicate video.

They pointed out there appeared to be some similarities to a Kenzo perfume advert, directed by USA producer and actor Spike Jonze, which was released a year ago.

Taylor's video starts off with the singer doing interviews on a red carpet and taking selfies with fans at an event while being flanked by security guards.

Swift then tries to grab his attention when she realises she's been turned invisible, after being handed a magic note.

Controversy seems to follow Taylor Swift, so this video release wasn't without its own share of drama - many claim the video copied Spike Jonze's ad for Kenzo, as well as singer Sia's moves. In the comparisons, one Twitter user called Taylor's video, "a poor man's version of Spike Jonze's ad for Kenzo".
