Taylor Swift Teases 'The Man' Music Video on Twitter and Reveals She Directed It

Taylor Swift has just released a teaser clip of the music video for "The Man" on Twitter and revealed that she directed the video.

Swift tweeted: "Oh man...music video tomorrow at 7 a.m. EST! And I'm going to be chatting/answering your questions/mansplaining the video on YouTube starting an hour before at 6 a.m. EST."

In the short clip, we see a person from behind looking out of a window to a city. Then, an end card reveals Swift as the director.

Swift first revealed the video was on its way yesterday when she tweeted: "There are 19 hands in the hallway ... but only 2 days until The Man Music Video" with a poster announcing the release date.

Fans on Twitter have a theory that the 19 hands reflect the 18 women (plus Swift) that Swift mentioned in her acceptance speech for Billboard's Woman of the Decade Award.

In her speech, Swift said: "And I see that fire in the newer faces in our music industry whose work I absolutely love. I see it in Lizzo, Rosalia, Tayla Parx, Hayley Kiyoko, King Princess, Camila Cabello, Halsey, Megan Thee Stallion, Princess Nokia, Nina Nesbitt, Sigrid, Normani, H.E.R., Maggie Rogers, Becky G, Dua Lipa, Ella Mai, Billie Eilish. And so many other amazing women who are making music right now."

Swift is known for hiding clues about her upcoming songs and albums in videos and visuals, such as when she hid the name of her Lover album in the music video for "Me!"

Twitter users have also noted that there are eight columns and eight beams in the poster, which could reflect that "The Man" will be featured on Swift's eighth studio album. Additionally, Swifties spotted that the release date, (2/27/20) adds up to Swift's lucky number, as two plus two plus seven plus two plus zero is 13.

In the chorus of "The Man," Swift sings: "I'm so sick of running as fast as I can/Wondering if I'd get there quicker if I was a man/And I'm so sick of them coming at me again/'Cause if I was a man, then I'd be the man."

Swift released an animated lyric video for "The Man" on February 7, which featured a woman running around surrounded by men. The video sees the woman running upstairs, climbing ladders and being kicked off a building, before being caught by a woman and joining a crowd of women walking towards a city.

On February 17, Swift also released a music video of her performance of "The Man" live from Paris.

The official music video for "The Man" will go live on Taylor Swift's YouTube channel at 7 a.m. EST on February 27 and Taylor Swift will be answering fan questions on YouTube at 6 a.m EST.
