Taylor Swift sent a thank you to some special people who helped make her "Look What You Made Me Do" video possible!

The next day, Spotify announced that Swift had broken the record for first day streaming, with almost 8 million plays in its first 24 hours, breaking her buddy Ed Sheeran's "Shape of You" first-day record of 7 million streams. We're told an "insane" amount of security was involved.

The clip, directed by music video veteran Joseph Khan, is filled with easter eggs taking shots at Swift's public feuds and media headlines.

A snake ring wound around Swift's left ring finger - a nod to the imagery she's been using to tease her new album - looks to be the same piece Zoe Saldana wore to the 2013 Oscars.
