Lip-Syncing Frat Bros Use Their Free Taylor Swift Tickets for a Good Cause
A viral video is all well and good, but a viral video that helps people? That's something we can get behind.
The brothers at Transylvania University's chapter of Delta Sigma Phi put their own spin (shake?) on Taylor Swift's 1989 smash "Shake It Off," lip-syncing endearingly around the dorms. Swift herself even caught wind of the video, offering every member of the chapter two tickets to her tour.
I'm personally inviting all of these guys (and a date!) to a show on tour next year, it's on me. Nailed it, bros! http://t.co/PuBjqkf27n— Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) September 12, 2014
The charitably minded group (when the video first went viral, they used their YouTube channel to raise money for leukemia research) decided to give half of their tickets to the local Boys & Girls Club for Tuesday night's show in Lexington, Ky. (Oct. 20).
"We all got two tickets so we all thought this is just a gift and it would be a shame not to do something good with it," fraternity member Barton Lynch told WKYT.
"I was happy and it was my first time going to a concert," Nevaeh Coney (one of the young beneficiaries) added.
