Portsmouth High valedictorian kicks off viral Taylor Swift flash mob


PORTSMOUTH – There was not one student in the Portsmouth High School’s class of 2015 who did not know how to "Shake It Off."

During this year’s commencement ceremony, the graduating students broke out into a flash mob dance to the popular Taylor Swift song.

Valedictorian Colin Yost, who ended his speech by saying, “all you have to do is shake it off” then walked off stage to lead the flash mob with his classmates as the music blared throughout the auditorium.

A spectator’s video capturing the students’ surprise went viral shortly after it was posted, getting more than 5,000 views.

Colin's video (below) has almost 250,000.

That's a pretty great reaction.

It seems the students of 2015 have left big shoes for next year’s class to fill.

Check out the video below and let us know what you think about it.
