Taylor Swift delivered on a promise to her fans to re-record her beloved 2012 “Red” album and doubled up on multiplying the buzz around the release of “Taylor’s Version” when she dropped the music video for “I Bet You Think About Me” on Monday.
The record features country star Chris Stapleton, while its video served as Blake Lively’s directorial debut and sees Miles Teller as the male lead of the six-minute, 16-second ensemble in which Swift unforgivingly crashes a wedding of a former boyfriend.
Teller’s real-life wife, Keleigh, is also featured in the video.
Given the thoroughness of the video that sees Swift, 31, donning red dresses, red suits, red top hats and even a wedding gown, many fans have taken to the internet to share their theories about the subliminal meanings behind Swift’s antics — which were co-written by Lively.
TAYLOR SWIFT SINGS RUMORED JAKE GYLLENHAAL BREAKUP SONG ‘ALL TOO WELL’ ON ‘SNL’
Swift’s brother, Austin, is also listed as a producer on the visual.
Swift took to Instagram after the video was made to show that Lively had “SMASHED it just as I smashed this cake.”

Swift grabs a handful of the cake, which appears to be red velvet.
Fans believe that the song is about Jake Gyllenhaal (40), who Swift dated for three months in 2010.
Swift is wearing a vibrant red dress in the video as a nod to the “Red” countdown video she posted on Instagram in October, just weeks before her album rerelease.
Meanwhile, a red box with a bow on it is also said to be a reference to the same countdown video, but the box also appeared to be from a scene with actress Sadie Sink in Swift’s “All Too Well: The Short Film” video, according to Elle magazine.
TAYLOR SWIFTS BUMPS UP RE-RELEASE OF ALBUM ‘RED,’ FANS REACT: ‘THIS IS NOT A DRILL’
Also in the video, Swift flips the middle finger to her supposed former fling, and fans couldn’t help but notice that placed on said finger is a ring she is wearing on the cover for “Red (Taylor’s Version).”
According to Elle, the ring is a subtle mention to the “Love” ring she reportedly wore while writing the original “Red” album.
Swift gives the bride a red scarf as a gift in the short-form video.
While the cozy necktie also makes an appearance in “All Too Well: The Short Film,” within the singer’s “Swifties” fan club, it also reportedly serves as a symbol of her brisk romance with the “Nightcrawler” star.
JAKE GYLLENHAAL ON BATHING REGULARLY: ‘I FIND IT TO BE LESS NECESSARY’
Fans believe the transfer of ownership is Swift’s way of telling the world she’s moved on from Gyllenhaal.
Another red ring — this one heart-shaped — is also one that Lively wore on Instagram last week while promoting her alcohol-free seltzer, “Betty Buzz.”
Lively captioned the photo with “My hand modeling business is really taking off,” and she wore a figure-hugging, red dress with hanging rubies.
Fans believe that the black and red-accented top is similar to the one Swift wore to perform “We Are Never Ever Getting back Together” at the 2021 MTV Europe Music Awards.
It was also reported that the record was about Gyllenhaal when it was released in 2012.
According to a spokesperson from the Recording Academy, Swift’s rerecorded albums will be eligible in future Grammy Awards.
