Taylor Swift’s new music video opens up with a shot of a familiar Florida man: Miles Teller.

In “I Bet You Think About Me (Taylor’s Version),” the former Citrus County resident plays a groom haunted by his former lover (Swift), at a cinematic wedding to someone else.

The music video, which was released Monday, was written by Blake Lively and Swift. Teller’s real-life wife, Keleigh, stars alongside him as a bride.

The credits include a line thanking a COVID-19 safety team. However, some fans targeted Teller, a noted vaccine critic and friend of recently-ill Aaron Rodgers, for potentially putting T. Swift in danger.

Others wondered: Did Swift finally convince him to get the shot?

Teller starred in films like Whiplash and Top Gun: Maverick. Before he rose to fame as an actor, he moved to Florida as a sixth grader and attended Lecanto High School in Citrus County. He’s also the co-owner of a canned alcoholic beverage company Long Drink.
