It was all a dream. Taylor Swift used to read PBS magazine, and she heard about this little 1997 PBS kids’ show called Teletubbies way before any of you posers. Reminding everyone just how ahead of trends she is, Swift posted a Throwback Thursday Instagram of herself in a Teletubbie costume as a kid. Swift’s Instagram caption is:
When you dress as the yellow teletubby for Halloween, but it’s before Teletubbies got huge so all the kids at school ask you why you’re dressed as a yellow pregnant alien.
Get it? Swift was watching Teletubbies while y’all were still discovering Rugrats. She and Ryan Adams would totally drop a Teletubbies–inspired remix album called 1997, but you’re not cool enough to hear it.
