Nearly everyone knows Taylor Swift’s hit song “Shake It Off”, which has well over 2.4 billion views on youtube. In the music video, Taylor goes through some very funky costume changes, along with hilarious facial expressions and some very awkward dance scenes. All of which make this song one of a kind and a very unique music video!
When the residents of the Julia Wallace Retirement Village took it upon themselves to recreate Taylors’s “Shake It Off” music video, they created a performance for all to behold. The perfect outfits, the high-level energy, and the perfect amount of pizzazz – WOW!
Their performance is simply rib tickling for beginning to end. They start out their routine very similar to the way Taylor did, starting off with a woman popping her head up amidst a group of stretching ballerinas, then suddenly they break out in song..
The elderly woman who takes on Taylor’s role in the video lip syncs to Taylor’s voice, “I stay out too late. Got nothing in my brain. That’s what people say, mmm mmm. That’s what people say, mmm mmm!”
As she mimic’s Taylor’s hilarious lyrics, she also gets the movements and gestures Taylor performed in the original video spot on. Taylor Swift watch out! These elderly ladies are on fire..
Once they finish the initial ballet segment, these talented ladies jump straight into the boombox scene – and wow do they nail it! With their red and black outfits, the hats and hoods, and of course, the “boombox, they look every bit the part.
Get ready! This rendition of “Shake It Off” is guaranteed to have you rolling around in laughter. The amazing tribute video took a week to create and consisted of 50 residents, grandchildren and staff from the Julia Wallace Retirement Village.
It is also well worth noting, “With an average of 82 and a combined of more than 4,000 years, these retirees proved you’re never too old to Shake It Off and have loads of fun.” It’s very clear that they did and it’s just as much fun watching them in action!
Since they released their tribute on youtube, they have amassed well over four million views. People who have watched their video were amazed with their energy and how hilarious they were. People just loved watching these senior citizens perform and you will too.
