Rights lawyer Chel Diokno amused some social media users by posting a video of himself watching global popstar Taylor Swift‘s “The Eras Tour” with the signage “Team Bahay.”

The lawyer on Sunday showed what appeared to be a clear and closeup view of the Grammy award-winning singer, but the camera shifted towards him watching from his laptop.

A laugh track can also be heard in the background as viewers see Diokno holding a sign while watching Taylor.

“Take us to church, Taylor. Ingat and enjoy the show, mga Swifties!” he said with a smile.

Diokno also captioned his post with the following: “So make the friendship bracelets, take the moment and taste it! Enjoy the Eras Tour, mga Swifties!”

Taylor has a concert film accompanying her ongoing “The Eras Tour” worldwide.

For fans seeking an alternative way to watch her concert tour, “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour” movie is now available for viewing.

The documentary featured Taylor Swift’s performance during the initial three out of six nights at the SoFi Stadium in California in August 2023.

It was produced by the artist and directed by Sam Wrench, who was also behind similar concert films featuring Lizzo, BTS, Mary J. Blige, Brandi Carlile, Billie Eilish, Jennifer Lopez and Pentatonix.

Taylor’s “The Eras Tour” is a homage to her 10 albums and her artistic evolution in her 17-year career in the music industry, which saw her exploring different genres such as country, pop, alternative rock, electropop and folk.

Each of her albums represents an era of her career in terms of musical style and her personal journey as a musician and as an individual.

Taylor is currently in Singapore for her record-breaking concert tour. It is the last stop in her Asian leg.
