Calvin Harris has pretty much been going ham since he and Taylor Swift broke up, and his new video for "Ole" certainly fits that pattern.
Besides Harris epic’ rant against Swift, he’s been passing the time hanging out on boats with hot chicks and generally loving life lately.
Oh, and he recorded the ultimate Taylor diss track.
At least that’s what we believed "Ole" was going to be – an epic parting shot at Swift cheating with Tom Hiddleston, her beau du jour.
Well, now that the music video just dropped, it isn’t quite the kiss-off breakup anthem we were envisioning, at least not on the surface.
There is still shade to be seen here, however.
Josh Newman, the singer and performer whose track Harris produced, is featured in the video along with a girl on the rocks by the beach.
While the video takes place in Los Cabos, Mexico (hence the title) and Taylor Swift’s beach house in Rhode Island, the parallels are clear.
The rocks by her Watch Hill mansion, of course, are where her Taylor’s relationship with Tom was first documented by the paparazzi.
Ah, memories. Feels like it was yesterday.
The squad chilling in chairs outside, meanwhile, conjure up images of those hilariously staged photos from TS’ July bash in the Ocean State.
And, of course, there is the lyrical content.
Written from Hiddleston’s – or Newman’s – point of view, the new track makes apparent references to the actor’s Thor character, Loki:
"Low key … you won’t tell none of your friends about me."
The Taylor-centric lyrics continue, "You’ve hidden my name in your phone so you can call me to tell me you’ve been going through hell."
"Left him alone and you booked in a hotel."
Newman croons, as the breezy video progresses, "I see online that you begun to be a good girl and take trips with your boyfriend."
"Being attentive, continue to pretend …"
Pretty great. Actually a little more subtle than we thought it would be when excerpts started to leak out, but pretty great just the same.
Harris has always believed that one’s professional and personal lives are closely intertwined when it comes to Taylor. Oh how true this is.
Who would’ve thought he’d come out with a song first, though? Gotta hand it to the DJ on this one. Check out the "Ole" video below:
