10 fingers, 9 vintage shoe forms, 8 seashells … the countdown to Red release Tuesday is on, and Taylor Swift is not the only one who excited. Here at VH1, we have already learned all the words to “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” “Red,” “Begin Again” and “I Knew You Were Trouble,” dumped our boyfriends, and have gathered all our furry woodland creatures friends in anticipation of the ensuing dance party; but the celebrating won’t end there. Taylor has worked hard to make sure that Red‘s release is an event on-par with, say, a Kardashian Wedding, and we plan on partaking in every last part of it. Here’s our plan.
Four fun ways to celebrate Red‘s release:
1. Good Morning America: What better way to start the Red season than early — bright and early in the morning, that is. Taylor has been sneak previewing songs every Monday morning on Good Morning America for a few weeks now, and next week she’ll be there twice — on Monday the 22nd to celebrate the album launch and then back again the next day to perform live. Probably she’ll be performing something new, so you’ll want to make sure your alarms are set.
2. Pick Up A New Pair Of Kicks: You’ll want to look good today, so why not pick up a pair Red branded Keds? Take it away, Taylor: “I’ve been a fan of Keds for years, because they have two of my favorite elements of great style — they’re classic and effortless…I love pairing them with vintage looks.” So get out your favorite flowered dress and head over to keds.com, taylorswift.com, nodstrom.com and journeys.com to pick up a pair of the cute red sneaks.
3. Order A Pizza With A Side Of Red: You might be familiar with the Starbucks model, but what do you know about the Papa Johns’ pie-and-a-CD method of album sale? Truly forging their own with this promo, Taylor and Papa Johns have teamed up to offer you a deal that’s really too good to pass: $22 in-store or online beginning next week, you can order a large one-topping pizza and Red comes free! Taylor Swift pizza party anyone?
4. Storytellers: VH1’s Storytellers: Taylor Swift airs November 11th at 6 PM ET/PT. At this point, you will have listened through Red a few (okay, more than a few) times and Taylor’s Storytellers will be the perfect opportunity to test your theories as to which songs belongs to which -ex. Order a few more of those Papa Johns Red pizzas, get some friends together and make Taylor Swift Boyfriend Bingo boards. Winner gets a new pair of Red Keds!
