A Kentucky fraternity whose "Shake It Off" video is winning the Internet just received the ultimate endorsement – approval from Taylor Swift herself.

The singer gushingly approved of Delta Sigma Phi's video on Twitter Friday – and wants to meet the men behind the instantly epic viral clip.

"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!" she Tweeted Friday along with a link to the video, which has already garnered more than a million views on YouTube since its Sept. 6 debut.

As expected, the Transylvania University frat guys were just a tad excited to receive a response from Swift.



"This is quite simply the best day of my life. #wemadeit," Tweeted video participant Daniel Lyvers, in a message Swift herself promptly retweeted.

"So ... now all I need is a date to @taylorswift13's concert," Tweeted fellow frat guy Michael Soder in a message Swift also retweeted to her 47 million-plus followers.

Frat brother Skyler Stone told Lex18 News their video – which features a camera following various frat guys lip synching in and out of rooms on their dorm floor – took just two hours to create, including rehearsals, and was shot in three takes.

The fraternity admits it has received some negative messages from people who do not approve of Greek life, but frat brother and video participant Barton Lynch shrugs off the criticism a la Swift herself.

"Haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate," he (and Swift) said.
