It doesn’t get much bigger than a Taylor Swift appearance on Saturday Night Live – unless of course said Taylor Swift appearance involves a live rendition of the 10-minute version of ‘All Too Well’.
Luckily for the many, many Swift stans out there, such a performance has just occurred, with the pop star appearing on the American TV show for her 5th guest appearance, pulling out the fan favourite in the process.
Having just released her re-recorded version of the mega album Red, the easter egg that got everyone talking from the record was her expanded version of the heart-wrenching breakup song, which lyrically takes aim at her ex-boyfriend Jake Gyllenhaal.
The song caused a sensation on Twitter, and the follow-up live performance has also sent the internet into total meltdown. Check it out below.
To accompany the already considerable hype, a short film of the same name was also released to accompany the song, written and directed by Swift herself.
Staring actors Sadie Sink, Dylan O’Brien, the film portrays a loved up young couple whose relationship abruptly disintegrates, due to the man’s uncaring behaviour – an allegorical retelling of Swift’s version of events concerning her relationship with Gyllenhaal.
