A Group of 80-Year-Olds Recreated Taylor Swift's 'Shake it Off' and It's Majestic

A group of 80-something-year-old retirees in New Zealand, who live together in a retirement home that is clearly just a 24/7 party zone with scheduled naps, decided to recreate the music video for Taylor Swift’s potential Harry Potter tribute “Shake It Off”, and we definitely like their version better…

A spokesperson for the retirement home, who helped the residents create the video, said of the “Shake it Off” parody, “Our residents do exercise classes and love music… They did a flash mob at a mall about a year ago and then they did a nude calendar for charity — they love doing different things. They liked the song because it could involve the staff and grandkids as well. When they first saw the video they were a bit nervous but they soon got into it.” Um, hell yeah they got into it! They made those costumes themselves — they should feel prouder of themselves than they do of all their grandchildren combined!

Since we’re in the dawn of a new age called the #TaylorSwiftIsOverParty, it seems appropriate that these retirees should go back and recreate all of her music videos, and at least one of those lovely ladies should go out with John Mayer, Jake Gyllenhaal, Harry Styles, Calvin Harris, and Tom Hiddleston, in that order. AND THUS WE WILL REPLACE TAYLOR SWIFT WITH A BUNCH OF 80-SOMETHINGS FOR GOOD!

What do you think of the “Shake it Off” parody? How adorable are these grandparents? How much cooler than you are they? Tell us your thoughts @Smosh!
