    Taylor Swift’s new video was streamed 43.2 million times in the first 24 hours after its release:

    This completely shattered the Vevo record “Hello” set for the same time span in 2015: 27.7 million views, a benchmark Tay and director Joseph Kahn hit with six hours to spare. Casual.

    Look what you made us do
  3. I love the video, and the more I watch it (only twice so far, don't worry), the more I like the song.

    They've upped the number of times you can watch the video on the ticket page to improve your spot in line from 5 to 20 views per day, I'm sure that didn't hurt.

    Impressive I wont take that from her, but to put it mildly and as respectfully as possible it doesn’t make the song any less of the hot trash pile that it is.

    Really like what they did with this video. The song still hasn't caught me.

    I didn't like this song on first listen, but the more I listened to it, the more I started digging it. It ain't my fave thing TS has ever done, but god damn, it's still catchy.

    Give what you can.

    Remember when Fall Out Boy hit a million plays on Purevolume and it blew everybody's minds?

    Purevolume...that's a name I've not heard in a long time.
