'You need to calm down' before buying Taylor Swift tickets from resellers, warn police on TikTok

Someone in the Singapore Police Force must be a Swiftie.

The police posted a 15-second video on TikTok to warn fans against buying Taylor Swift concert tickets from resellers and quoted the title of one of the singer's hits.

Posted on Friday (July 7), the video starts with someone looking at her queue number on her phone to purchase the tickets.

"Huh, one million?" said the woman. "Never mind, I'll buy from resale lah."

Two uniformed police officers then walked towards her and one of them said: "M'am, you need to calm down."

You Need To Calm Down is the title of the second single released from Swift's 2019 album, Lover.

The woman in the video reacted with confusion and the police officer who spoke just smiled and nodded.

The clip ends with the tagline: "Don't lose money swiftly. Buy your tickets safely."

The video has garnered more than 600,000 views on TikTok.

Most netizens reacted positively to the video, calling it "cute" and "iconic".

Others commented that something should be done about the scalpers.

Stomp reported last week that a woman paid $700 for a pair of Taylor Swift tickets that a Carousell user had listed for sale – only for the latter to disappear and block her.

The police said on Thursday that at least 462 people have lost a total of at least $480,000 this year to scams involving the sale of concert tickets.
