WATCH: A Way Better Video for Taylor Swift’s ‘Shake It Off’

Everything is better when you mix in a little ’80s.

Taylor Swift’s video for her latest monster hit “Shake It Off” contains the singer and a slew of backup dancers working hard to perfect a 1980s cheesiness, so it only makes sense to match the song up to some authentic ’80s cheesiness.

The results are brilliant. Somehow, the music syncs up perfectly to the footage taken from the 1988 Crystal Light aerobic championship. Warning: don’t watch the original version. The music is nowhere near as head-splittingly catchy.

Enjoy the awesome collision of 1980s enthusiasm and pop music from ’10s (can we call it that?) in the video above.
