Video: Minnesota teachers post Taylor Swift parody, land tickets to her show


If you try desperately to get tickets to your favorite artists' concert but can't, what do you do?

Some Moorhead second-grade teachers opted for dancing and singing on video and putting it online.


The quartet – Mollie Lackmann, Hope Schmidt, Joni Grant and Melissa Hagan, according to The Forum – couldn't score tickets to Taylor Swift's Fargo show (slated for Sept. 9), so wrote, recorded and posted a teaching-themed parody of her hit single "Shake it Off." (Watch it above.)

Their hope? Get some tickets to the show.

And they actually did – though not through Swift.

Fargo-Moorhead's Y94 "Morning Playhouse" radio show invited the teachers to the studio and surprised them with tickets. Watch that clip below:


The teachers' original video has just shy of 10,000 views as of Wednesday morning.
