They were swift to snag tickets.
These two lucky parents were met with one very upset teen once they surprised her with rare Taylor Swift concert tickets for Christmas.
In a viral TikTok clip, which topped 15.2 million views, the daughter opens the skinny, paper box to disclose a chunk of paper showing the seat numbers.
“What is that this?” she asks as she pulls off the highest of the box. “Oh, Taylor Swift.”
“Whoa — I’m not an enormous fan,” she adds as her jaw drops open in confusion.
Her mom responds, “What?!” as her dad’s laugh punctuates the video within the background before the clip ends.
Despite the plain issue that she wasn’t as big of a Swiftie as her parents thought, those tickets got here at an excellent greater price. Swift’s highly anticipated “Eras” tour was the middle of Ticketmaster controversy last month as the value for entry soared into the 1000’s.

One eager fan purchased seats for $9,000 but got here up empty-handed despite her card being charged — only one example of the chaos that ensued as people clamored for tickets online. Unfortunately for a lot of Swifties, there was an excessive amount of demand and never enough supply, leaving many fans upset and without tickets (save for the few who might get a second likelihood at purchasing).
This young girl’s viral video prompted viewers to beg for the girl’s unwanted tickets, while others slammed her for being “ungrateful.”
“Guys shes not ungrateful shes just saying she doesnt like taylor swift,” one user argued.
“Even before I saw her response I had a sense she wasn’t gonna be a Taylor Swift fan,” one other noted.
“This isn’t being ungrateful if my mom bought me tickets to taylor swift i’d be upset because she wasted her money on something I don’t like,” another person wrote.
She was obviously lower than thrilled to receive the highly sought-after tickets her parents happened to snag.TikTok /
Other users bashed the parents for not knowing what their daughter even likes — and a few even assumed the parents wanted the highly sought-after tickets for themselves.
“The ‘what?!’ Do you not seek advice from your kids lmao,” a TikToker chided.
“Get to know your kids,” chastised one other.
“The way in which they prob went through hell for those but thats what happens when u dont know ur kids,” commented one other user.
“They got her something THEY wanted,” another person hypothesized.
“This isn’t her being ungrateful, it’s the parents not knowing their kids. Or the parents getting something for themselves,” one viewer commented.
Other users tried to search out light within the situation, even offering to purchase the tickets from her.
“It’s okay she will resell them and buy a house,” one person quipped.
“I’ll buy them i’m so serious i’m an enormous fan,” a Swiftie offered.
She informed her eager parents that she isn’t a “big fan,” looking as shocked as ever.TikTok /
“GIMME THOSE TICKETS,” demanded one other.
“NO WAY, I WOULD HAVE BEEN SCREAMING. I WILL TAKE THE TICKETS OMG,” another person commented.
Apparently, the dad’s other daughter “loves Taylor Swift,” the mom explained within the comments section, and the dad purchased two tickets so the step-sisters could go together.
She assured other users that, despite her response, “she does like Taylor,” she’s just not a “BIG fan.”
“He’s the one who bought the tickets,” @allybeach919, the mom who posted the clip, wrote within the comments, referring to her husband. “His daughter loves Taylor. he asked her if she liked Taylor, she said yes, her old music. So he tried.”
