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 monitor.
The sports activities world is not any exception.
Swift launched a teaser trailer for her new album Midnights earlier than the third quarter of Thursday evening’s sport between the Arizona Cardinals and the New Orleans Saints — resulting in some confusion from followers relating to 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 everywhere in 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.
Perhaps the most effective instance comes from the Boston Bruins, who put collectively this unbelievable video on TikTok after Midnights dropped:
The monitor in query is Maroon, which is fueling lots of the hypothesis within the wake of the discharge of Midnights. Some followers consider the tune is about Swift’s prior relationship with Jake Gyllenhall, whereas others assume it may very well be a reference to Harry Styles. Even extra followers consider the tune exhibits her private development, a nod to her album Red, launched ten years in the past.
(Honestly, that’s the place I’m leaning. Red to maroon or one thing like that … however I digress.)
Whatever you consider, 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 group, for placing this collectively.
