For two weeks now, Taylor Swift fans have been obsessing over her new, 10-minute version of “All Too Well,” and its gorgeous accompanying short film starring Sadie Sink and Dylan O’Brien.
Online analysis has mostly revolved around reveling in the video’s many Easter eggs (the red scarf! the 1989 car! the birthday cake!) and hating on the doo-doo head who broke Taylor’s heart back in 2010. Namely Jake Gyllenhaal, with all of his plaid shirts and fancy friends and mean words. Never mind that some of the lyrics Swift added to “All Too Well (Taylor’s Version)” are barbed, to say the least. Most notably the line: “I’ll get older but your lovers stay my age.” (The 40-year-old Gyllenhaal is currently dating a 25-year-old model. Ouch.)
