There’s not too much to say about this clip, except that it features some of Anglophenia’s favorite British stars—Stephen Fry, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart—as well as Morgan Freeman, Kendrick Lamar, Piers Morgan, Diane KrugerJack Gleeson and the Korean pop star Psy (of “Gangnam Style” fame) having their words taken out of footage of their addresses to the Oxford University Union and put into a version of Taylor Swift’s immaculate pop delight “Shake It Off.”

As an exercise in showing off the kind of talents the Oxford Union can expect to welcome to their debating hall, it’s peerless.

And of course if anyone wanted to create a thing that might attract the attention of Taylor Swift, herself for a future booking of this sort, this is exactly what they would do to try and make it happen.
