I Can't Unsee This Weird Detail In The 'I Don't Wanna Live Forever' Music Video


Posted on

Today, on this otherwise demure day of January 27, 2017, Zayn Malik and Taylor Swift welcomed their "I Don't Wanna Live Forever" music video into the universe.

And we're happy for them! We really are. ZAYN (all-caps to remind you that he's a ~solo artist~) successfully employed the lava lamp lighting that's become a large part of his aesthetic since he broke off from One Direction.

Not to mention, Taylor got to upgrade her signature lip color to match Dorothy's heels in The Wizard of Oz.

It's a pretty tame video considering that it's the foremost track on the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack, but there's one small detail that grabbed a hold of my eyeballs and won't let them go.

You see, after Taylor and Zayn finish throwing their respective tantrums of pent-up sexual rage, they both take a chill pill and repeat their key phrases ("I just keep calling your name/Until you come back home") one more time while the camera studies them closely.

Taylor goes first:

Then it's Zayn's turn and holy crapnugget WHO WAS IN CHARGE OF TAMING HIS MUSTACHE

Observe closer, will you?

His glorious face bristle defies the laws of physics and gravity, sitting at a cool 45° angle from his upper lip.

While the mustache's strength is praiseworthy, demonstrating its ability to make its own choices, is this foreshadowing that it will eventually secede from Zayn's already-one-man union? 😕
