    I'm Sorry To Jake Gyllenhaal, But These 24 Jokes About The Scarf He Stole From Taylor Swift Are Just Too Funny

    Just return the darn scarf, Jake.

    Taylor Swift's recent release of Red (Taylor's Version) — specifically, the 10-minute version of "All Too Well" — has a lot of people talking about a certain artifact from the singer's past: a scarf she wore during her relationship with Jake Gyllenhaal, who's widely speculated to be the subject of the song.

    The scarf she sings about has made several appearances during the Red (Taylor's Version) era — All Too Well (The Short Film), the "I Bet You Think About Me" music video, and Taylor's merch store.

    the scarf is worn by the bride in the music video and the girlfriend in the short film

    I'm wearing my own "All Too Well" scarf as I write this.

    And, while "All Too Well" is a crying-in-the-shower kind of ballad, the response to all the scarf hoopla has been hilarious.

    Swifties are laughing through their tears.

    1. The queen of Twitter has spoken:
