Taylor Swift‘s “Delicate” video is here, and her fans are definitely not chill about it.
While director Joseph Kahn was teasing them — “I’m still editing,” he tweeted while everyone was waiting for “Delicate” to premiere Sunday night (March 11) — and Swift herself was liking tweets of anticipation, Swifties were trying to keep their cool up until the second the video started playing during the iHeartRadio Music Awards. Sort of.

And then they lost it.
Fans pointed out the moments they relate to (that mirror scene!), investigated every shot for hidden messages (song lyrics via graffiti, Joe’s Deli … a ring?), made connections to old songs (“Clean”) and even felt like proud moms.
