Mondays are the absolute worst, a restless day defined by foot dragging, ennui, and Victorian era hysterics. But this Monday is different! This Monday, Yahoo messed up majorly and leaked Taylor Swift's music video for "Blank Space" a day before she was set to premiere it on Good Morning America. Their screw up is our gain!

In the clip, Taylor embodies the crazy ex-girlfriend role the media has crafted for her. After a brief fairy tale romance of caped promenades, Valentine candy heart picnics and horseback riding, Taylor gets jealous over a text and the knives come out. She stabs a cake, drops a cell in a fountain, tries to chop down a tree with initials carved in its bark, takes a golf club to a fancy car, and -- perhaps best of all -- cuts holes in her ex's shirt, a Mean Girls reference meant for Katy Perry. Taylor Swift does not play. You have been warned.
