Taylor Swift liked ‘Teletubbies’ before they were cool

This week the calendar gave us a gift: the opportunity to post a pre-Halloween #tbt photo. Taylor Swift took advantage by posting a picture of herself in costume as a kid.

When you dress as the yellow teletubby for Halloween, but it’s before Teletubbies got huge so all the kids at school ask you why you’re dressed as a yellow pregnant alien.

Swift looks adorable as the yellow Teletubby, Laa-Laa, but that didn’t stop Twitter from getting some hipster mermaid vibes from the caption. Specifically, “but it’s before Teletubbies got huge.” 

Being ahead of the curve is tough, but it seems like Swift made it through alright. And with some fire #tbt fodder to boot.
