    BTS Surprise-Dropped A "Black Swan" Music Video And Clearly They Don't Want ARMY To Breathe

    Me: *wakes up and comes to work, innocently* Big Hit: *drops surprise MV, kills me*

    Hi and hello! We're gathered here today to witness my figurative and not-dramatic-at-all death, thanks to the surprise drop of BTS's "Black Swan" music video.

    Big Hit, I assume you'll cover the funeral costs? Thanks, much appreciated!

    Because I simply don't have the words to do this music video justice, I've completed the very hard and rigorous task of rounding up the best tweets:

    1. I have a lot of questions. Number one: how dare you?

    Big Hit's staff is probably lol-ing at us right this very second. (But also, pssst, what else ya got coming?)

    2. Warning: The next few tweets might make Jimin your BTS bias. I don't make the rules, he does.

    JIMIN PERFECT DANCER PLS #BlackSwan

    I'd like to thank Jimin's mom and dad for all those years he spent honing his contemporary dance skills, because we are TRULY BLESSED to witness them.

    Honestly, they knew the thirst tweets would be a-comin'.

    What did I do to deserve this #BlackSwan @BTS_twt

    Jungkook really likes to free float — see 1:20 in "Blood, Sweat & Tears" and the very beginning of this live performance, and we love to see it! Every time, in fact!

    He's really giving us Oscar-worthy stares and confrontation!

    12. As much as I'd love to talk solely about the MEN, let's direct our attention back to the video:

    JUNGKOOK WATCHING HIS SHADOW DISSAPEAR. YUP HE WON! HE ACCEPTED HIMSELF AND NOW THE SHADOW IS NO LONGER A THREAT TO HIM! THIS PART GAVE ME CHILLS! #BlackSwan #BlackSwanMV #BlackSwanOfficialMV

    This Natalie Portman Black Swan crossover is way too eerie! But I can't stop watching it. 👀

    The shooting location is amazingly beautiful ✨ #BlackSwan @BTS_twt

    Whoever scouted this location (which is apparently the Los Angeles Theater), thanks for finding my future wedding venue.

    “THE BLACK SWAN THEORY, IS A METAPHOR THAT DESCRIBES AN EVENT THAT COMES AS A SURPRISE” I GUESS THIS IS WHY BH DROPPED THE BLACK SWAN MV OUT PF NOWHERE!! SURPRISE MFS #BLACKSWAN

    @pjmsmiley / Via Twitter: @pjmsmiley

    The screenshot reads: "The black swan theory or theory of black swan events is a metaphor that describes an event that comes as a surprise, has a major effect, and is often inappropriately rationalized after the fact with the benefit of hindsight." That being said, IT ALL MAKES SENSE NOW.

    18. In conclusion...

    no one: literally no one: bighit: *drops #blackswanmv out of nowhere* armys:

    I'm year of the rooster. This tweet is literally me.
