Taylor's version of "I Bet You Think About Me" stars Taylor and actor Miles Teller. 

In the closing credits of the video, Taylor thanked everyone for making the video. 

"A huge thank you to every single person who worked to make this video what it is. Every member of the crew in pre, post and physical production. Every actor. Our COVID safety team. The musicians, writers, producers and technicians who are behind this song,” she said.  

“And to all our families who supported us as we dream impossible things. We thank you,” she added. — Video from Taylor Swift YouTube channel
