Watch 14-Year-Old Taylor Swift Stare Daggers at the Camera

She Kills It as Island Girl 1 in a School Video Project


Taylor Swift could have had a very promising career as a Price Is Right model — or maybe Vanna White’s eventual successor on Wheel of Fortune — if this home video from 2003 is any indication.

Even at 14 years old, the same year she signed her first song publishing deal in Nashville, Swift was a natural on camera.

She and some classmates had to put together a video project, so they came up with a fictional company called Paco’s Paradise Smoothies and made a commercial for it. Swift gets the indispensable role of “Island Girl 1.”

Check out those eyes! She’s locked in on the camera like a lion with its latest meal. Obviously she was born for this stuff!
