Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift attended Coachella over the weekend. Fans and news publications were shocked to find the most famous couple on the planet just wandering through the crowds with normal people as they were near the stage for Dom Dolla and Ice Spice and spotted backstage during the Bleachers performance.

During the Dom Dolla set, Kelce briefly lifted Swift into the air, which shouldn't be very surprising because Kelce is a 6-foot-5, 250-pound professional football player, but you could never tell by the headlines the move inspired.

Overall it was a huge weekend for Kelce who graduated from college on Thursday. The celebration began when he chugged a beer on stage after receiving his diploma and continued at a sushi restaurant before the couple headed for the desert. And that's where Kelce might have invented a new couples fitness craze that will be called the "Swift Lift." Expect Google searches for deadlifts to skyrocket.

Most impressive of all is the fact that the Chiefs tight end became the first person in history to get his girlfriend to wear a hat promoting his podcast. While Kelce wore a Happy Gilmore hat and sunglasses at night, Swift rocked a green New Heights hat. If you've ever questioned Swift's bonafides at a trendsetter, even Travis and Jason Kelce's mother has never been seen in one of those.

It's unclear if that's an old hat of Kelce's or a Swift exclusive because there are no green hats available in the New Heights merch store. Bless the heart of whoever has to field the calls from Swifties demanding the hat be made available immediately.
