Taylor Swift's candid promo video for 'Fortnight' is filled with cute references to her relationship with Travis Kelce
  • Taylor Swift shared a promotional video for her single "Fortnight" and it's full of references to her beau.
  • Some clips featured Travis Kelce directly, including one where he leans in to give Swift a peck on the cheek.
Taylor Swift is happily in love, and she's not afraid to let the world know.

Over the weekend, the singer posted a promotional video for her single "Fortnight" on YouTube Shorts, and it's full of cute nods to her relationship with NFL player Travis Kelce.

The 16-second clip was meant to encourage fans to participate in the #ForAFortnightChallenge, where they post a highlights recap of their fortnight. As of April 22, there are about 5,200 videos under the hashtag on YouTube Shorts.

Swift's video has been viewed almost 40 million times since it was first uploaded.

While some clips in her fortnight recap featured Kelce directly, there were a few other sweet but subtle moments where she referenced their relationship.

1. A peck on the cheek

About one second into the video, Kelce can be seen leaning in to give Swift a peck on the cheek as she whips something up in the kitchen.

2. A University of Kansas sweatshirt

In one of the clips from the video, Swift can be seen wearing a colorful University of Kansas sweatshirt while making crafts.

Although Kelce didn't attend the University of Kansas — he was a student at the University of Cincinnati — he does play for the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Chiefs' home venue, Arrowhead Stadium, is less than an hour away from the KU campus.

3. Making cinnamon rolls

In December, former NFL quarterback Bernie Kosar said on 560 WQAM's "Tobin and Leroy Show" that he once tried one of Swift's homemade cinnamon rolls while at Kelce's house before a Chiefs game.

"I was at his house like three hours before the game, we're having a pregame meal and Taylor is so nice. She comes in by herself and she's so cool. She brings her homemade cinnamon rolls for Travis for the pregame meal," Kosar said. "I'm a juicer right now, trying to be vegan and gluten-free and stuff, but I absolutely had a sample some of that on game day."

Although it's unclear if the clip of the cinnamon rolls in the video is from the game day that Kosar's referring to, Swifties should know that the singer really loves her baked goods.

In 2020, Swift also posted an image of her homemade cinnamon rolls on Instagram.

4. A night stroll at Singapore's Gardens by the Bay

In March, Swift played six sold-out concerts in Singapore, her only Southeast Asian stop on the Eras Tour. Kelce was spotted in the audience on two nights.

During Swift's downtime, the pair even managed to take a romantic night stroll through the country's famous Gardens by the Bay, as seen in her video.

Kelce was particularly excited about his experience at the gardens and raved about it to his brother, Jason, on an episode of their "New Heights" podcast released on March 31.

"I got to check out the world's largest greenhouse. How about that? I'm a big plant guy. Loved seeing fucking enormous trees," Kelce said on the podcast. "It was cool as fuck; they had the world's biggest waterfall in a greenhouse, too."

5. A Kansas City Chiefs pickleball paddle

In one of the clips in the video, Swift can be seen holding a red Kansas City Chiefs pickleball paddle while wearing a white top and lavender skorts. The paddle is available on Target for $89.99.

Kelce has been playing for the Chiefs since 2013, and Swift has been spotted cheering him on at numerous NFL games.

"Fortnight" — featuring Post Malone — is the first single off of Swift's latest album "The Tortured Poets Department," which was released on Friday.

Despite a subdued promotional strategy, Swift's album managed to break records on Spotify, Apple Music, and Amazon Music.

According to an official X post by Spotify, the album became the "first album in Spotify history to have over 300M streams in a single day." In a follow-up post, Spotify also announced that "Fortnight" became the platform's "most-streamed song in a single day."

A representative for Swift did not immediately respond to a request for comment sent outside regular business hours.
