12 Easter Eggs Hidden in Taylor Swift's Fortnight from The Tortured Poets Department (TTPD)

Alright, Swifties! Buckle up because we’re diving into the treasure trove of Easter Eggs hidden within Taylor Swift’s latest album, The Tortured Poets Department (TTPD).

1. Fashion Forward Flashbacks

Many also noticed a few fashion throwbacks. Taylor’s opening scene garter is reminiscent of the one she sported during her ERA store’s midnight set, and the dress in the video echoes the one she wore for the album announcement.

2. Clara Bow’s Beauty Mark

Taylor’s makeup in the first scene resembles that of silent film star Clara Bow, to whom Taylor has even dedicated a song. The thin eyebrows were all the rage in the 1930s, adding a historical layer to the visual storytelling.

3. Decoding the Details

The guy in white delivering medication could be a visual representation of the lyric “miracle move on D R U G.” The numbers on the “forget him” bottle? They cleverly spell out Taylor’s birthday followed by the music video’s release date – April 19th.

4. Handcuffed Harmony

Sharp eyes spotted the handcuffs in the video, a playful nod to the lyric “even if it’s handcuffed, I’m leaving here with you” from her song “I’m Gonna Get You Back.” This injects a bit of lightheartedness into the overall theme of the video.

5. Time After Time

Remember the “8 PM release” that somehow morphed into an 8:02 PM drop? Eagle-eyed fans noticed this, and guess what? Two is a recurring theme throughout the “The Tortured Poets Department” (TTPD) Easter eggs. Clever girl, Taylor! Speaking of timing, the video’s length – four minutes and nine seconds – adds up to her lucky number, 13. Coincidence? We think not.

6. Typewriter Twists

Sharp viewers noticed a deliberate blank space in the word “ruining” as Taylor types. Is this a hint at a potential double album? And the lack of a number one key could be a playful reference to the “Style” music video.

7.  Medical Mystery and Lyric Love

The EEG machine displaying “I love you, it’s ruining my life” clearly references the song’s title, while the TTPD logo ties the whole thing back to the album.

8. Story Time with Posty

As Taylor reads “The Story of Us” to Post Malone, it’s another connection to her song from “Speak Now.”

9. Dead Poets Society Reunion?

In the torture scene, Ethan Hawke and Josh Charles are both actors in the classic film Dead Poets Society.

10. So Long, London?

The classic London phone booth could refer to Taylor’s song “So Long London,” hinting at her relationship with Joe Alwyn.

11. Black Dog Blues

There is no mystery here – the black dog likely refers to the song “The Black Dog” on the TTPD album.

12. Swiftie Swag

The video ends with Taylor grabbing Post Malone’s hand and a glimpse of Taylor’s TTPD merchandise – a ring on her finger. It’s a subtle way to promote the album while seamlessly integrating it into the video’s narrative.
