Did you ever think Taylor Swift would allow herself to get scanned like a box of cereal at the grocery store? That's kinda what happens during the making of her in-game character role in the new video game Band Hero, set to hit stores this November. The scanning allowed game makers (Activision) to have a bit of fun and capture her most delicate moves to mimic gameplay. Check out this behind-the-scenes look at the making of the game:






Along with Taylor, Band Hero will feature other chart-topping artists like No Doubt, Lily Allen, The All-American Rejects and Jackson 5. The game will also tap into some 64 tracks - among them classic rock artists Maroon 5, Jesse McCartney, Go-Go's, and The Turtles.

One key feature allows people to "play alone or select any combination of multiple vocalists, bassists, drummers or guitarists to create their own band," according to game-maker Activision. Band Hero will launch on Nintendo Wii and DS Lite, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 2/3. In addition to the trailer, check out a few screen shots of the game:
