Taylor Swift’s ‘End Game’ Music Video Is Here And Twitter Did Some Major Sleuthing

If you stayed up until midnight last night, you were probably waiting for the drop of Taylor Swift’s music video for “End Game.” Well, it’s here and shot in Tokyo and Miami, it does not disappoint. Spoiler alert, Katy Perry didn’t make an appearance, but lucky for us, Ed Sheeran and Future did.

The video shows the Swift, Sheeran, and Future having fun in their international travels, from riding motorcycles, dancing on yachts, and having night strolls on the beach. But no Taylor Swift music video is ever a simple four minutes. Since it’s her we’re talking about, you know she had to sprinkle in a few details and throw a bit of shade here and there.

Swift continues the bad girl style with all black ensembles and smokey eye makeup. However, the old Taylor does make an appearance when she wears glasses that we’ve seen in past music videos.

You belong with me ❤️

Others were just happy to see Swift being free.

This music video is just beyond everything I expected. It feels like more than just a fun dancing shtick. It feels like a true music video where we get to see Taylor have fun, be drunk, and not give a damn. It's beautiful. #EndGameMusicVideo #EndGame

Towards the end of “End Game,” Swift is prancing on the beach under the fireworks and fans think it’s an allusion to a lyric in her past track, “Dear John.”

If you paid attention to the juice box Swift was holding, you might have expected the words to translate into some hidden message. Actually, it’s a bit more simple than that.

Another fan translated Japanese signs from one scene. Meredith and Olivia happen to be the names of Swift’s two cats, not her ex’s new lovers.
