Look at what fans made Taylor Swift do!
Swifties were whipped into a frenzy on Friday morning when the “You Belong With Me” singer dropped a teaser trailer for “All Too Well (The Short Film).”
Showing a car driving down an autumn road, it is surprisingly reminiscent of the song’s lyrics: “We’re singing in the car, getting lost upstate / Autumn leaves falling down like pieces into place / And I can still picture it after all these days.”
The short film stars Sadie Sink, Dylan O’Brien, and Taylor Swift. Swift wrote and directed the film as well.
In the description of the video, Swift, 31, wrote simply: “November 12. Remember it.”
“All Too Well” has been a fan-favorite song ever since the “Red” album dropped in 2012. Although the song is a lengthy 5 minutes and 28 seconds long, Swift has mentioned over the years that the song was originally much longer.
Now, on “Red (Taylor’s Version)” fans are going to be treated to a 10-minute version of the song. Although both songs will appear on the album, it’s unclear as to whether or not the short film will feature the 5-minute version or the 10-minute version.
Taylor Swift Made Her Fans ‘Wildest Dreams’ Come True
Fans immediately took to social media in order to share their enthusiasm for the short film, which drops exactly seven days from now.
“Taylor really knows how to give heart attacks and cure them as well,” one fan wrote.
“All too well is one of her most well-acclaimed songs and seeing it translated through a short film rather than a music video is such a breath of fresh air knowing how most of her songs are personal & story-based,” another shared.
“I always felt like the lyrics of All Too Well was a touching letter to a lover that I wasn’t supposed to read. Every time I listen to it my mind swarms with all these wonderful feelings, like reading a heartbreaking novel,” another commented. “I can’t wait to see how Taylor imagined her song and if her actual thoughts were anywhere what I imagined they would be.”
“Taylor wasn’t kidding when she said ‘I understood the assignment’ she’s doing extra credit at this point,” another joked.
Billy Joel Is ‘Ready For It’

Fans pointed out that both Sink and O’Brien have both professed to being fans of Swift’s music before, but they’re not the only ones singing the “willow” singer’s praises.
Legendary artist Billy Joel, 72, recently called Swift “the Beatles of her generation.”
He added that Swift is “a very talented girl, and she’s productive and keeps coming up with great concepts and songs, and she’s huge. You have to give her high marks. She knows music, and she knows how to write. She’s like that generation’s Beatles.”
Considering that she’s releasing not only the 10-minute version of one of her most popular songs, but a short film as well, proves that she knows her fans as well. She is also scheduled to appear on “Saturday Night Live” on November 13.
