In true Taylor fashion, her attendance at Arrowhead caused quite a stir as she was spotted enjoying the game in Kelce’s suite alongside his closest family and friends. While candid photos and videos of Swift cheering on Travis and socializing with his Mom took over the internet, it was a behind-the-scenes video of the two leaving after the game that sent Swifties into absolute mayhem.
The video was taken in the deep guts of Arrowhead by Jarrett Payton — the son of running back Hall of Famer, Walter Payton. Jarrett has now found his own space in the Swifties Hall of Fame as he captured the “fly-on-the-wall” view they were all dying for.
“After the game everybody’s gone, all the players are gone and I knew Travis was still there and Taylor was still there,” he told Audacy’s Scotty Kay. “I’m walking and the security guard tells me to stop and he’s like, ‘Don’t go anywhere, just stay right here,’ and I’m like, ‘OK, cool.’”
He continued, “I saw somebody that was with Taylor walked by and I picked up my phone, hit record, and I’m like, ‘I gotta get this.’”
After security guards tried to interrupt his video and tell him to delete the footage he got, Payton was the hero all Swifties needed as he refused to delete any of the footage and kept recording.
“I got like, 5 seconds before [and] the security guard tried to put his hand in front of my video and then looked at me and told me I needed to ‘delete that video now,’ and I’m like, ‘Yeah, OK buddy, yeah right. I’m not deleting this, dude. It’s about to blow up.’”
“I knew what I had,” he continued, sharing the people around him were shocked he didn’t delete it. “There was like nine people around me and they looked at me like, ‘Did you get that?’ And I said, ‘Yeah. I got it,’ and they asked, ‘Did you delete it?’ And I go, ‘No I didn’t delete it, are you crazy? This is about to go on the interwebs right now, it’s about to blow up.”
Payton was eager to share the footage with the world and posted it before even leaving the parking lot that day. All hail Jarrett Payton!
