Seen Taylor Swift’s new Kentish Town-set video yet?

So, back in October, the media was set alight by zillionaire pop icon Taylor Swift and entourage pulling up into Kentish Town to shoot a few scenes for the promo for new single End Game.

At the time, the rumour was that Kentish Delight – the busy little kebab shop near music venue The Forum – would feature heavily in a 9-hour shoot which took place between 9pm and 6am (with a crew of, apparently, 60 people).

Recognise it? TS on Falkland Place. Still: Vevo
But watch it above, and there’s in fact a poor (ie. zero) showing for the fast food joint (although there is some ‘bab-guzzling later).

Tayls, is however, quite clearly filmed in cute Falkland Place, the pedestrianised backwater that makes a good shortcut to The Pineapple.

And look closely in the London section – as the video is also shot in Miami and Tokyo, with all-star pals including Ed Sheeran – and is that really the Bull & Gate, and its swanky Boulogne Bar?

It is. Eagle-eyed local arty bloke Jamie Firth (@mrjfirth) sent us this screenshot if you need further proof:

Other scenes in the vid show our Taylor on a night out elsewhere in the capital, as well as on the Millennium Bridge and a night bus.

And, as we reported last time, all the locations were allegedly places she has been to with British boyf Joe Alwyn – who was brought up in – you guessed it – Tufnell Park.

Altogether now: “Big reputation…”
