“If I just showed up at your party, would you have me?” Would you like me? Would you tell me to go myself, or take me to the garden? the song’s protagonist, James, sings throughout the song – but the listener is unaware of Betty’s immediate response.
Swift fan took the liberty of building on Swift’s fantasy scene with a TikTok comedy series from everyone’s perspective other at that fateful high school party, where a teenager tries to apologize.
In some videos by TikTok user @ kerrinotcarrieokay, she is Betty’s “stupid friend” inside the house, one of whom accidentally locked herself in the bathroom.
” Who is it? The friend said, knocking on the blocked door to get someone’s attention. “Is that James ?! No! Don’t do it, Betty! Betty! BEEEETTTTTYYYY !! ”
In another TikTok clip, she’s James’ mother, waiting in the car for her child – because, you know, James doesn’t drive.
“Good luck, pumpkin! This Betty is a nice girl, ”she said.
In another take, which has gotten over 155,000 views on TikTok, she stars as a pair of cops outside Betty’s house, arriving to shut down the whole shindig.
“Weren’t we going to break this party? ” we ask. “Oh, yeah, yeah, we are. I just want to see what this yahoo says first. Little skate punk. ”
Watch it all unfold on TikTok – there are also takes from the perspective of Betty’s mom, little sisters, and dog – and tune in to Swift’s “Betty” below.
