Jake Gyllenhaal memes are going viral following the release of Taylor Swift's Red (Taylor's Version).
Listen to this article
Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal dated each other back in 2010 and Swifties will already be well aware that the relationship, and the subsequent breakup, allegedly inspired many of the songs on Taylor Swift's Red. From easter eggs in the album's lyric booklet to seemingly direct references in songs, it's safe to say that Jake doesn't come across all too well in Red.
With that in mind, it's no surprise that Jake Gyllenhaal memes are going viral now that Taylor has rereleased her Red LP.
Fans of the original version of Red will likely recall that songs like 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together' and 'Red' were allegedly based on Taylor's experiences with Jake. However, the ultimate Jake breakup ballad is widely regarded as 'All Too Well', and Red (Taylor's Version) features the original previously unheard, heartbreaking 10-minute version of the song.
Unsurprisingly, the new lyrics are pretty unforgiving and don't paint Jake in the best light. For example, Taylor sings: "You who charmed my dad with self-effacing jokes Sipping coffee like you're on a late night show / But then he watched me watch the front door all night, willing you to come / And he said, "It's supposed to be fun turning twenty-one."
Taylor adds: "And I was never good at telling jokes but the punch line goes / I'll get older but your lovers stay my age."
Naturally, the song and the album at large are perfect meme fodder and Jake is target number one.
1) She did what needed to be done.
2) The song is just too good.
