Taylor Swift is taunting everyone with these confusing snake videos, and I am exhausted

As you may or may not know, Taylor Swift had a social media blackout on Friday, and all of her accounts were deleted, much to fans’ dismay. Some initially assumed that Taylor was attempting to give herself a bit of solitude, particularly in the aftermath of her sexual harassment trial.

However, it’s becoming clearer and clearer that Tay-Tay is most definitely up to something.

Yesterday, Taylor’s Instagram account came back to life when she posted a cryptic, muted video of what appears to be a reptilian, snake-like creature.

Taylor followed up with yet another bizarre and confusing snake video earlier today.

Comments are disabled on the videos, and the clips are currently the only posts on Swift’s now-barren Instagram page. She doesn’t even have a profile pic anymore.

It doesn’t take a genius to deduce that some sort of album and/or single announcement is coming (probably on Friday, because that’s how “hype week” works). One could also assume that the snake videos are a clear, thumb-biting nod to the many snake emoji Taylor received when Kim Kardashian revealed Taylor’s alleged duplicity, and the public’s subsequent assumption that Taylor is two-faced and untrustworthy — i.e., “a snake.”

To which I just have to say: okay, honey, we get it. You’re embracing your snakiness. I’m very happy for you. Just please release your damn album/single already so I can stop theorizing as to what you’re up to.

Fortunately, the rest of Twitter seems to be reveling in Taylor’s reptilian taunts.

Welp. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what happens! And by “wait and see,” I mean refresh social media furiously and try to decode nonsensical clips of cold-blooded animals.

Taylor, sweetie: please just admit you’re “back” already so I can get some damn rest.
