Taylor Swift and The Civil Wars' 'Safe and Sound' video: Watch now!
Though they introduced her performance at the Grammy Awards on Sunday night, the band and Swift don't actually meet in the video. They do their work in a warm-looking room in front of a comfortable fire, while she walks, barefoot and ragged, through a chilly, barren forest.
When she finds an abandoned hut and picks up Katniss' mockingjay pin, there's a sense of tragedy appropriate for the haunting film. We appreciate the fact that the video invokes the feeling of the "Hunger Games" without being too literal -- Swift-as-Katniss would not have been a good direction.
