Email The Wrong Taylor Swift And Become Immortalized On The Internet
Posted by Newson 06/20/2011 at 6:03 PM
We all have an email doppelgänger out across the depths of the Internet. And while this usually results in the occasional “Hope Aunt Linda is feeling better after her hip surgery!” or “Thank you for considering me for the position” emails, for some if that doppelgänger just so happens to be a pop superstar, it becomes much more challenging to ignore, as the self-esteem and blind faith of America’s youth are at stake with every misdirected message. Apparently the man with a remarkably close email address to Taylor Swift finally got tired of getting over five emails a day from enthusiastic preteens declaring their love for the 21-year-old star. The Tumblr OMG IS THIS TAYLOR SWIFT? chronicles the various messages a male Taylor, who has had his address since 2006, receives on the daily. (With great power comes great responsibility.) While it’s mostly younger fans who just can’t believe that they’re actually connecting with the superstar over the World Wide Web, there are also some creepy messages, proving the Internet is still a fucked up place after all:
To avoid all these messages cluttering his account, the dude could just change his own email address, but we understand him refusing to do so on principle. (Digital hoarders unite!) Obviously the mature response is to expose the hopes and dreams of little kids, to the amusement of a bunch of Internet strangers. (Not that we’re complaining—we happen to be those Internet strangers.) But what if this is all one big prank by Taylor Swift herself, seeking inspiration for her next album? Could the real Taylor be so cruel? Never meet or speak to your idols, kids.
