On July 7th, during the Eras Tour in Kansas City, MO, Taylor Swift pleasantly surprised her fans by bringing Taylor Lautner on stage. Lautner made a memorable entrance with a backflip. This reunion marked a professional collaboration between the two Taylors, coinciding with the release of Swift’s music video for “I Can See You.” The music video features Lautner, alongside Joey King and Presley Cash.
Notably, King and Cash had previously appeared in Swift’s “Mean” music video in 2011. Swift expressed her appreciation for Lautner’s support during the creation of her “Speak Now” album, acknowledging that he performed all the stunts seen in the music video. She also mentioned that Lautner and his wife have become some of her closest friends, adding humorously that their shared first name makes their friendship quite convenient.
Heartfelt Moments and Playful Reunions
During the event, Taylor Lautner, his wife Taylor Dome, and Taylor Swift shared a playful moment, making light of their shared first name. They recreated the iconic Spider-Man meme where three Spider-Men point at each other in confusion on the set of the music video. Taylor Lautner excitedly shared the photo on his social media, teasing that the secret was out and expressing how wild the night had been.
While on stage, Taylor Lautner took a heartfelt moment to give a shout-out to Taylor Swift, expressing his happiness that they have remained friends long after their breakup. He conveyed his deep respect for her as not only a talented singer, songwriter, and performer but also as a genuinely kind, humble, and gracious person. Taylor Lautner expressed his honor in knowing her and shared his admiration for the person she has become.
Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner’s Professional Reunion and Spider-Man Meme Recreation
At the stroke of midnight on July 7, Taylor Swift released “Speak Now (Taylor’s Version).” This highly anticipated album includes the renowned track “Back to December,” which was influenced by her separation from Lautner, whom she met in 2009 while filming “Valentine’s Day.” Unlike some of her breakup-inspired songs like “Dear John,” “Back to December” reflects Swift’s remorse over parting ways with her former love.
