When Taylor Swift drops a brand new album, the world tends to hit the pause button, after which slowly pay tribute as followers work their manner by means of every observe.
The sports activities world isn’t any exception.
Swift launched a teaser trailer for her new album Midnights earlier than the third quarter of Thursday night time’s sport between the Arizona Cardinals and the New Orleans Saints — resulting in some confusion from followers concerning when to tune into the sport — however the tie-ins between the sporting world and the brand new launch didn’t cease there. Following its launch, Midnights is already being mentioned all around the media world, with Swift’s legions of followers discussing their favourite tracks and debating the which means behind every tune.
And sports activities groups are paying tribute on social media.
Maybe one of the best instance comes from the Boston Bruins, who put collectively this unimaginable video on TikTok after Midnights dropped:
The observe in query is Maroon, which is fueling a whole lot of the hypothesis within the wake of the discharge of Midnights. Some followers imagine the tune is about Swift’s prior relationship with Jake Gyllenhall, whereas others assume it may very well be a reference to Harry Types. Much more followers imagine the tune reveals her private progress, a nod to her album Purple, launched ten years in the past.
(Actually, that’s the place I’m leaning. Purple to maroon or one thing like that … however I digress.)
No matter you imagine, the efficiency from the Bruins gamers on this above video is worthy of reward, as they honestly get into the spirit. And full credit score to Elaine Cavalieri, who places collectively social media content material for the workforce, for placing this collectively.
