WATCH: Taylor Swift Sings with a Human-Sounding Goat

And now everyone on the Internet is making videos of pop songs that would sound better with goats.

Taylor Swift knew this goat was trouble when it walked in.

A new meme splices together scenes from the music video for the Grammy award-winning singer’s “I Knew You Were Trouble” with video of an eerily human-sounding goat. Since the clip was uploaded to YouTube on Feb. 22, it has racked up more than 4.9 million views.

The mashup may have been inspired by the definitive super-cut of the web’s most vociferous goats, “Goats Yelling Like Humans,” uploaded earlier this month. (Maybe plug in your headphones for this one.)

Can you think of any more songs that could be improved by screaming goats? Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ on a Prayer” perhaps?

Or Justin Bieber’s “Baby”?

The screaming goat has in fact become a full-blown meme; goat editions of several pop songs have popped up in the past few days: Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep”, Taio Cruz’s “Dynamite”, Nicki Minaj’s “Starships”, Chris Brown’s “Don’t Wake Me Up”, David Guetta’s “Titanium (feat. Sia)”,┬áKe$ha’s “C’Mon”, Miley Cyrus’s “Party in the USA,” Usher’s “Scream”.

There’s also a 2009 video of a goat screaming along to Usher’s “Papers”. Los Angeles’ 102.7 KIIS-FM showed it to the hip-hop star in 2010 and he thought it was “hilarious”.
