There's a very obvious nod to Harry Styles in Zayn and Taylor Swift's new music video

Fifty Shades of sneaky.

Long ago, in a world where One Direction was still a five-piece band, Taylor Swift and Harry Styles dated. Very briefly.

Another important factor to take into account before you continue reading this story is that Zayn Malik used to be part of One Direction.

So when two of Harry Styles' (kinda) exes get together to make a music video, you'd low-key expect a bit of a shoutout.

The music video for Zayn and Taylor's Fifty Shades Darker tune, "I Don't Wanna Live Forever" has been released and it's very sexy, as expected.

However, fans have been pointing out quite a few obvious nods to Harry Styles, proving that Taylor Swift alway gets the last word.

For example, at one point, Taylor can be seen sprawling across a bed in a rather ~dramatic~ fashion:

Where have we seen that before?

Oh that's right! Her movement looks basically identical to Harry's in One Direction's Perfect video which, yep, you guess it - is about Taylor Swift.

The next obvious suggestion that the music video is about Harry also comes from Taylor, but this one is a little more subtle.

Back in 2014 when Taylor slayed the Victoria's Secret show, there were rumours that Harry Styles made an appearance backstage to congratulate his ex.

Although there were no photos and the rumours were source-based, Taylor's pretty much confirmed that it did happen, thanks to this blink-and-you'll-miss-it-moment:

Notice that dude and girl in the background? See how he has slightly long hair? Also check out that outfit - it's a good match to the one Taylor wore, huh?

Call us what you will (hopeless romantics, people who need to get out more, etc) but we just can't help but reminisce of the good ol ~Haylor~ days.

Life was so simple then :,)
