Oh John Mayer. The heart-breaker enlisted the help of Prancercise creator Joanna Rohrback to release his new single, “Paper Doll.” Tell me this video is not mesmerizing! Once you get past all the Prancercise glory, you might pick up on the fact that this song sounds an awful lot like it was written for a Miss Taylor Swift.
With lyrics that include “22″ (Swift’s hit song), a scarf (which Swift references in “All Too Well”) and the line “Someone’s gonna paint you another sky” in response to Swift’s “You paint me a blue sky and go back and turn it to rain” from Swift’s “Dear John”, a musical back-and-forth is hard to ignore.
It seems Mayer, 35, has a fan in Rohrback, however.
“They just released a music video I did for John Mayer. … They introduce it as Advanced Prancercise which I assure you it’s not,” the viral video star writes on her YouTube page. “However, they just probably wanted to differentiate it from my real program. I really enjoyed doing it and applaud John for being unique in this presentation … not just another Hollywood cookie cutter version!”
Mayer, who’s recently been linked to on-again, off-again girlfriend Katy Perry, will release his sixth studio album, Paradise Valley, on Aug. 13.
I actually really like the song….. it’s really beautiful sounding.
