Bad Skin (A Taylor Swift Bad Blood Parody)

Wearing sunscreen is important. Skin cancer SUCKS. So does getting all wrinkly and leathery and whatnot.

That said, sun-related skin damage had an upside: it gave us a reason to do this over-the-top parody of Taylor Swift’s Bad Blood. We pulled out all the stops this time. Perhaps we should have put them back in? Watch and decide.

In the meantime, learn more about choosing an appropriate sunscreen here so you too can avoid that Bad Skin.


PS: this is the first ZDoggMD video presented in 4K, so you’ll never miss another fine wrinkle. Enjoy!

    Never envisioned you as a blond, but you totally rock that look. Also, that brand of olive oil is the absolute best. For cooking. And the video? The usual kudos to you, Dr. Talent.

    • Yo M! Thanks for the love. Hard to see in the images, but that was actually avocado oil (from Costco)…doesn’t burn at high temps, which was perfect for tanning Tay Tay!

      • Meredith Gould

        California Olive Ranch makes the olive oil, check it out. Come to think of it, the flavor does have avocado bass notes. Ok, back to work. Yes, on Labor Day.

  • Dee Rogers

    Awesome as always!! I watched this morning and my teens came running thinking it was Taylor but got kick out of it. See I’m a huge #SPFMOM and nurse. My grandmother had basal cell carcinoma. My boys know SPF and so does my husband who works for highway department.

  • Mishia O’Dell

    Awesome as always! Keep getting your messages out there!
