Swifties scrambled to decipher the hidden messages in the clip.
Taylor Swift sent her Swiftie sleuths into overdrive on Thursday morning (August 5) when she released a cryptic 30-second video teaser filled with a series of 13-letter word jumbles floating out of a gilded safe amid swirling copper-colored leaves. The message accompanying the tweet was similarly packed with wink-wink, nudge-nudge clues that will likely be quickly deciphered by the singer's legendarily detail-oriented superfans.
"*presses post* *cackles maniacally* Level: casually cruel in the name of being honest," Swift wrote above the clip featuring such seemingly nonsense phrases as: "MEBRIDGERSKOE," "NOTELPATSIEEV" and "EAIEURLTSBETT." Billboard recently confirmed that the heart-wrenching song "Ronan," chronicling a child's battle with cancer, will be featured on the upcoming re-recorded 30-track version of Red, which is due out on Nov. 19.
