In YouTube Right Now, the Daily Dot looks at videos that catch our eyes, push our buttons, and move our dials—and that you’ve just got to watch. Right now!

Although the Summer Olympics ended nearly five days ago, we’re still mourning the loss of the sports spectacular. It’s simply not getting better!

Apparently, we’re not the only ones: A new video is highlighting just how difficult is to come down from that Olympic high. “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” is based off that new Taylor Swift song we all love to hate (or hate to love) and produced by The NOC, a YouTube-based sports channel.

The lyrics take us through an emotional journey of what we were doing last week and how sad our lives are now.

“Last week I was in front of my TV—shouting/Now I’m like a new McKayla meme—scowling.”

The singer also mentions how he misses Usain Bolt’s sprinting, Ryan Lochte’s swimming, and United States women’s volleyball team’s “thonging.”

There is literally nothing worse than turning on NBC to expect another night of Olympic coverage and being presented with Stars with Stripes instead.

“But oooh, this time there’s nothing on there’s nothing on,” he sings. Really, there’s nothing on anymore.
