As Philadelphia Eagles fans poured onto the city streets to celebrate the team’s victory in the NFC Championship game against the Minnesota Vikings on January 21, one Philly fan proved particularly popular.

New Jersey-born cinematographer Matt DiFabio captured a number of videos of celebrations in the city. However, the undoubted star of his footage is a dog wearing an Eagles jersey who attracted the attention of plenty of emotional fans.

DiFabio’s footage shows one woman, in particular, hugging the pooch in an embrace that just about sums up how the city was feeling, as the Eagles secured their first Super Bowl appearance since 2005. Credit: Matt DiFabio via Storyful
