The countdown to Taylor Swift’s latest album, Lover, has been filled with Easter eggs. But, Swift’s latest Lover teaser pokes a little fun at fans who are a little too obsessed with the details. Specifically, how many holes there are in that fence.

Over the weekend, Swift posted a photo of her staring through the holes of a fence. “Okay NOW there are five holes in the fence,” she tweeted, along with three emoji: the nervous face, a cat, and red lips.

Almost immediately, fans started questioning if Swift was dragging them for trying too hard to find meaning in some of her recent posts. This fence photo, in fact, was a throwback photo she posted back in February. Back then, fans thought it was teasing a new album or a new song. Swift, it seems, just wanted to tease a new romantic aesthetic for her follow-up to the darker Reputation. 

As Swift jokes here, there wasn’t a deeper meaning for this photo. Well, until now. When she posted it on Sunday, it was exactly five days until Aug. 23 when she officially drops Lover.
