When it involves Easter eggs, Swift makes use of aesthetics, together with numbers and phrases. As you’ll be able to see from the entire photographs and movies above, “The Man” has lent itself to a black-and-white colour palette, which she’s been utilizing into these first two months of 2020 (together with at Sundance). If which means something, maybe it’s that Swift is saying there’s extra to return.

And if there’s, and we’re actually getting a “The Man” music video, we have now an thought when will probably be. Swift is obsessive about the quantity 13, and makes use of it each time doable. Feb. 25, 2020 = 2+2+5+2+2=13, in order that’s a possible date.
