“Wildest Dreams” may not have all the celebrity cameos that “Bad Blood” delivered, but it will feature one famous (and handsome) face – Scott Eastwood! The 29-year-old actor/ model son of Clint Eastwood was reportedly at Swift’s 1989 tour in San Diego over the weekend.

First Look Photo
Taylor Swift took to Twitter on Saturday to drop another teaser for “Wildest Dreams.” The photo features the singer rocking dark hair in a vintage-style photo … and cuddling up with Eastwood!

According to the clapboard in the teaser video, “Wildest Dreams” was directed by G. Musterhausen. However, there is a catch … G. Musterhausen is not a real person. According to MTV, Musterhausen is actually Joseph Kahn, the same director behind “Bad Blood” and “Blank Space.”
Gustof Von Musterhausen was the greatest director who ever lived. RIP.

Code Name: #ToothPasteCommercial
Joseph Kahn is one sneaky director. He’s been tweeting about a “Tooth Paste Commercial,” but in reality, the “Tooth Paste Commercial” is actually the “Wildest Dreams” music video. He was also writing that he was “on vacation” while the video was being made.

It has yet to be confirmed, but looks like “Wildest Dreams” is set in the 1950s and takes place in Africa. Fans have been speculating based off of the teaser video.
