Taylor Swift is the other woman in Mad Men-esque video

"She loves our recording of it".

Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush of Sugarland and Taylor Swift pose at the 45th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on April 18, 2010 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Taylor Swift showed off her acting chops in Sugarland's music video for the track Babe that debuted Saturday, appearing as a redhead in the Mad Men-inspired music video for the dreary tune. "When she was first getting started we had just had our first little EP out, called 'Premium Quality Tunes, '" Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles told Billboard.

Because Swift didn't end up using the song, she chose to give it to Sugarland, which got its start around the same time she did. He meets a red-haired Swift at work and pursues a romantic relationship with her while his wife stays at home, being the flawless housewife.

"Swift reached out. We [have] obviously known each other for many years".

'I'm going to close my mouth and let her tell that story - I'm going to let the song tell that story.

Kamal Haasan's Vishwaroopam 2 Trailer Packs A Punch
Aamir Khan shared the Hindi trailer of the film on his Twitter account with a short message for the 63-year old veteran actor. Vishwaroopam 2 also marks Kamal Haasan's 59th year in the industry, a record not many of his peers have achieved so far .

Given her connection to the song, Swift appeared in the video.

Nettles and musical partner Kristian Bush were thrilled not only with the song, but Swift's idea for the video as well. 'Which I think could be a giveaway if you're a Mad Men fan, but maybe not'. As Routh heads to work, he and Swift exchange flirty glances before entering the elevator and then reuniting in his office.

"It's cinematic", Nettles agreed, adding that Swift helped shape the look.

Speaking to People, the 43-year-old country star said: "She actually reached out to us and said, 'I've got a great idea for the video".

"We looked at it", adds Bush, "and said, 'Oh my gosh, this is awesome'".
