Within the outro of the track, Swift revels within the plus-sides of not being in that relationship:
I haven’t got to faux I like acid rock /
Or that I would wish to be on a mega yacht /
With essential males who suppose essential ideas /
Guess possibly I’m higher off now that we do not speak
TikTokkers, significantly girls, have flocked to the platform to create their very own model of this verse. As creators sing the precise lyrics, they caption the movies with their very own experiences — similar to not needing to faux to love Kanye West’s music or baseball video games, or not noticing an ex’s receding hairline. The sound, created by TikTokker @victoreeuh, is hooked up to over 9,000 movies to this point, a lot of them following this development.
Whereas many of the movies are about former romantic relationships, because the track is, some could also be about friendships, as nicely:
“Y’all of the girlies are in hell,” commented Twitter/X person @ExquisiteWill in a thread in regards to the development; actually, we will not disagree. Contemplating Taylor Swift’s influence on TikTok, the movies will possible preserve coming. Guess possibly we’re all higher off!
