Taylor Swift’s surprise 14-minute short film which she released last November for her 2012 song ‘All Too Well’ was all anyone could talk about for weeks. In the two months since it dropped, the video, which stars Sadie Sink and Dylan O’Brien, has garnered over 57 million views on YouTube and countless fan theories about the location of Swift’s scarf.

The original song, which debuted on Swift’s fourth album Red, has long been lauded by fans as one of her best works of music and since its release was widely rumoured to have been written about her famous ex-boyfriend, Jake Gyllenhaal. So when Swift dropped not only a music video seemingly confirming the rumours, but added extra new lyrics pointed directly at Gyllenhaal too, Swifties (and the wider internet—even those who don’t follow the singer closely) went wild. 

Now, it appears Gyllenhaal is ready to respond and he’s doing so by trolling us. In a new photoshoot, the actor is seen wearing a red button-down shirt with matching heart-shaped sunglasses resting on his head. Of course, Swift fans were quick to note the singer famously wore the same heart-shaped glasses for her hit single ’22’, also off the Red album. Not to mention the shade of Gyllenhaal’s shirt matches that of the album name. 

In case there was still any doubt as to the inspo behind the pic, the photograph, taken by Tim Walker for W Magazine, was then shared to Instagram with the caption “Red (Jake’s Version).”

“Whoever wrote that caption deserves a raise,” one person wrote in the comments, while another put, “Jakes version! I am dying! 😂😂😂.” A third added, “The person in charge of your socials has been waiting all day to post with this caption” and another (perhaps the best), wrote, “Red Shirt, The 22 music video sunglasses!! 💀 Jake and Tim Walker woke up and chose violence.”

Though the post was hilarious, it was later changed with every reference of Swift taken out (perhaps Gyllenhaal, who has avoided engaging in any of the ‘All Too Well’ drama thus far, had a word with his team, or perhaps it was always meant to be amended after a brief laugh was had).

As of now, the text doesn’t mention the inspiration behind Gyllenhal’s outfit at all and focuses solely on his current work: “When the Danish film #TheGuilty premiered at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival, much of the audience exited the screening in a state of distress. #JakeGyllenhaal, on the other hand, felt inspired. For our annual Best Performances issue, the actor discusses reimagining the thriller for American audiences, being starstruck by Brad Pitt, and the one movie that always makes him cry.”

Although Gyllenhaal has never publicly addressed the recent renewed interest in his three-month relationship with Swift, which took place well over a decade ago, a source told E! News in November that the actor “has no interest in any of it.”

“He doesn’t read gossip or pay any attention to that,” they added. “He’s living his life and focused on himself. He’s ignoring all of the noise.”
