Have you ever been so bored at work that you just wanted to break out into a dance? Well, that’s exactly what Pocket, the now viral security guard at Taylor Swift’s recent concert in Glendale, Arizona, did. And man, did she give TikTok users a show to remember!
With her hands in the air and hips swaying to the beat, Pocket mouthed every word to a Taylor Swift song while on duty at the State Farm Stadium. The video of her dancing went viral, racking up over 5 million views.
The TikToker who shared the video, Jeff Skibiski (@skibiscuit), said, “No one worked harder this weekend than this iconic security guard, Pocket.”
“I didn’t know I was going to wake up and be the #1 fan of a woman named Pocket, but here we are,” another viewer wrote in the comments.
“When Ticketmaster fails you and you apply to work at the stadium,” another fan joked.

According to a study published in Sports Medicine, dancing at work might just be the best way to improve your mood and overall health.
The study said that dancing can significantly improve your body composition, blood biomarkers, and musculoskeletal function, even at amateur levels of participation. So, maybe instead of taking a coffee break, maybe you should take a dance break instead!
But it’s not just physical health that dancing can improve. A study published in The Arts in Psychotherapy found that dance therapy and ballroom dances can be beneficial for patients with breast cancer, depression, Parkinson’s disease, diabetes, and heart failure. So, not only can dancing make you feel good, but it can also potentially improve your mental and physical health.
And if that’s not enough to convince you to bust a move, a study published in The New England Journal of Medicine found that leisure activities like dancing, reading, and playing musical instruments can reduce the risk of dementia. So, if you’re worried about losing your marbles, grab a partner and hit the dance floor!
