Are you ready for it? And by it, we mean the new Taylor Swift music video. After releasing a video for the first single “Look What You Made Me Do” two months ago, Swift decided to delight her fans with the music video for “…Ready for It? which was released on Friday.

The song has been here for a while now, with the critics calling it a significant improvement compared to “Look What You Made Me Do.” The music video is quite interesting. To an untrained eye, it looks like just a regular, visually attractive music video. But, true Taylor Swift fans immediately recognized numerous references to Swift’s relationship with actor Joe Alwy in the video. First, check out the video for yourself, and try to find them all.

In case you didn’t manage to discover the references, let us help you a bit.

The neon sign on Chinese says “Joseph”, which is Alwy’s full name.

Further, we have the birth years of Taylor and Joe written as graffiti.

Now, this might be a long shot, but at one point Taylor dials in the number 21 on the console, which might be a reference to the fact that Joe’s birthday is on 21st February.

Finally, there are numerous secret messages on the walls, which might be dedicated to Joe Alwy.

Unlike some other relationship that Swift had, the one with Joe Alwy hasn’t been featured in the media that much. According to reports, the couple started dating in early 2017 and is looking to keep their relationship low-key in order to avoid pressure from the public. Swift previously dated actor Tom Hiddleston for a few months in 2016 and DJ and producer Calvin Harris in 2015.

Swift will release her new album titled Reputation on 10 November through Big Machine Records.
