At approximately 7:54 p.m.-ish ET on Aug. 30, 2015, Taylor Swift and all of her friends stood on the red carpet of the VMAs to introduce her newest music video. But something happened.
EVERYTHING WE KNOW SO FAR:
Exhibit A: The ~mystery noise~ happens just as Taylor squats in excitement. Not saying that she is the culprit, but it's POSSIBLE that a spontaneous squat could release an accidental gust of air out of your butthole.
Exhibit B: Taylor looks guilty. Kind of like how one might look if they just farted by accident.
Exhibit C: Karlie knows.
Exhibit D: Karlie DEFINITELY knows.
Exhibit E: TAYLOR IS WORRIED.
Exhibit F: Hailee smells it.
Again, not saying that anyone farted, BUT...
...if there was no fart, would Hailee have had to 1) cover her face from the wafting smell 2) Pray to the fart gods to end the bitter war?!?!?!?!
Exhibit I: Taylor looked guilty again.
In conclusion: Was it a fart? A random noise? Maybe someone was moving around in a leather chair just off camera?

The truth is we might never know. But whatever it was, we are all lucky to be alive right now.
A statement from an MTV spokesperson has revealed that maybe it was a leather couch after all:
"MTV can confirm that the sound heard in the moment Taylor Swift introduced her new music video, "Wildest Dreams," was isolated to a production microphone. There was absolutely no possibility of it being Taylor or anyone in her party's microphones picking up ambient sounds."
