Catholic College’s Music Video Makes Taylor Swift “SO Happy!”

Aleteia - published on 10/24/14

Boston College students make "Shake It Off" Video as part of faith initiative

Boston College students have made a music video inspired by Taylor Swift’s hit, "Shake It Off."  The video features students, teachers, and even priests dancing to the song.

According to the Catholic Herald, the students of the Jesuit university chose the song to "shake off our burdens and choose to foster ‘agape: unconditional love that seeks nothing in return’ in the lives of others."

In a tweet to her 45.6 million followers, Taylor Swift showed her appreciation: "Thank you everyone who took part in making this, it just made me SO happy."
