Wait, that was Taylor Swift?!

That's the question many Swifties are asking themselves after watching her jaw-dropping new music video for feminist anthem "The Man," in which she sports heavy prosthetics and a beard to play a pompous, high-achieving businessman.

Throughout the four-minute clip, Swift imagines all the things she could do as a man with no consequences or judgement: partying with models on a yacht, "manspreading" on the subway, marrying a much-younger woman, and urinating on a wall out in public with a "no scooters" sign (a nod to her feud with music executive Scooter Bruan, as eagle-eyed fans pointed out).

In a meta twist at the end of the video, bearded Swift walks over to blonde-haired Swift in a director's chair, who gives some sarcastically sexist direction for the next take: "Can you try to be sexier? Maybe more likable this time?"

As the credits roll, side-by-side photos reveal Swift in the makeup chair having her masculine prosthetics applied.

"The Man" is the first music video solely directed by Swift, who previously co-directed her videos for "You Need to Calm Down" (with Todrick Hall) and "ME!" (with Drew Kirsch). Asked during a YouTube Q&A with fans what her favorite part of helming the video was, Swift replied "all of it."

"I loved the months of prep, meetings, location scouting, set design, mood boards, deciding every detail down to the wardrobe each actress/actor wore + working with them on set," Swift wrote.

"The Man" is the fourth single from Swift's latest album "Lover," after "ME!", "You Need to Calm Down" and the title track. Last month, she released an eye-opening Netflix documentary, "Miss Americana," which takes an intimately personal look at her creative process, life in the spotlight and political awakening.

One scene in the film shows Swift in the studio writing "The Man" with producer Joel Little, who says how exhausting it must be for the singer to have to be "on" all the time.

"You are kind of doing a constant strategy in your head as to how not to be shamed for something on any given day, but then you get accused of being calculated for having strategy," Swift tells him. "I'm good, but you do sort of have to twist yourself into a pretzel on an hourly basis."
