Hi, can someone explain the 5 holes in a fence theory to me? i’m new here <3 x
of course! it was a wild time and truly the dumbest we've been.
this was during early lover era, when we knew taylor was cooking an album but there had been no announcement of it yet. taylor then posted this photo of palm trees and we went WILD. there are 7 palm trees and taylor's next album would be ts7. we counted the stars that is just a filter. we counted that there are 4 trees on the left and 2 on the right, those referencing taylor's country and pop albums and that since there's a tree separated from the rest, that ts7 would be another genre.
we went crazy looking into that photo. that night, taylor then posted a photo of her sitting on the stairs. rip we still have not gotten a hq photo of that dress. we're all like oh how cute, she's sitting on the stairs in a cute dress with the piano there too, it's a pretty photo 💜
and then IT HAPPENED. the next day, she posted the fence photo. I don't know how..or who.. or why..but the holes in the fence were counted..and there were 5 holes in the fence.
we went back. saw she was sitting on the 6th step from the bottom on the stairs photo. went back further, saw the 7 palm trees.
we all collectively lost our minds thinking it's a countdown and that she'll officially about to announce ts7.
the next day...we wait..for the photo that would reference the number 4. we're all refreshing her instagram, not looking away from our phones for more then two minutes. we're all just WAITING for the moment to happen..it did not.
did we give up? no we did not. we thought..wait for it,
she FOURgot to post!!!!
that's our next easter egg! we very seriously thought that, no joke. it's truly the lowest point we've gotten to. it's embarrassing.
blondie then posted a photo of detective olivia benson a couple days later reacting to our theories. she made fun of us. we were being teased by taylor alison swift, and rightfully so.
life went on, we laughed and tried to forget we seriously are so dumb and made a total fool of ourselves.
then taylor swift attacked us. she posted a literal photo of a fence and captioned it "there were five posts in the fence." she's insane. we were bullied by global superstar taylor alison swift. this is not fair. she teased in front of MILLIONS of followers. I love her and hate her.
but was she going to let this go? NOPE. the audacity this woman had to POST THE FENCE PHOTO AGAIN. literally months later!!! to millions of followers, who had absolutely no idea what this photo and caption was about, only because our big lil fandom on tumblr is so stupid. it was our embarrassing moment and she just exposed us to the world.
i don't remember the exact month this happened but during the time she was during radio promos for ts7, a host literally ASKED taylor about five holes in the fence. could not be me. they took one for the team. and taylor laughed at us, said the palm trees photo was posted the day she finished lover.
it was a wild time..we are so dumb. we tease taylor all the time and she got her moment to tease and expose us back. but you know what!!! there were 7 palm trees, 6 steps, and 5 holes. those are the facts.
