In an effort to raise awareness to New Eyes' and The Inspire Project's brand new Project Human: Changing the Way We See the World speaking series, Jake posted a photo of him wearing glasses when he was younger.
I’ve worn my glasses ever since I parted my hair meticulously with gel (see above), which is why NEW EYES has always been near and dear to my heart. Since 1932, @neweyes_ has provided eyeglasses to people who needed them most. I’m thrilled that they’ve partnered with @theinspireprojectus to create Project Human: Changing the Way We See the World, a speaker series coming to schools and remote learners this fall. Project Human is designed to spark conversations focusing on unity and equality. It’s an opportunity for students to interact with public figures and do what they do best: Keep ‘em on their toes! For a full line-up of speakers or to bring Project Human to a school near you, visit: http://theinspireproject.us/project-human/

However, as hardcore Taylor Swift fans might remember, she actually wrote about one of his throwback photos in one of her songs, "All Too Well". Check out the lyrics below, via Genius:
Photo album on the counter, your cheeks were turning red
You used to be a little kid with glasses in a twin sized bed
And your mother's telling stories about you on a tee ball team
You taught me 'bout your past, thinking your future was me
After seeing his brand new photo, fans couldn't help themselves and started to flood "All Too Well" references in his comments.
"I’m about to sing All Too Well," one user wrote.
"You really did used to be a little kid with glasses in a twin-sized bed," commented another.
One fan even copy and pasted the lyrics to the whole song (talk about dedication!) while upcoming West Side Story star Rachel Zegler wrote, "I'll be honest mate, you set yourself up for this one."
Jake and Taylor still haven't responded to the comments. Although, it seems like it didn't really bother him at all since he made another post a day later about the one year anniversary of his play, Sea Wall/A Life.
Hopefully, he was able to get a good laugh from it all.
