Sydney theatre director Anne-Louise Sarks was left in a difficult situation today, when just before the opening night of her new play, Seventeen, Taylor Swift's label told her she couldn't use "Shake It Off" in the production.
Sarks went for broke and tweeted at Queen Tay herself.
She pleaded to let the 70-year-old actors in the play dance to "Shake It Off" because it fit perfectly in the production.
A few Australian celebrities joined the cause, including Tim Minchin...
...And Orange Is the New Black's Yael Stone.
And just seven hours hours later, BOOOOOOOM, Tay Tay granted the wishes of a bunch of old actors to literally shake it off.
What. A. Story.
By chance, BuzzFeed News was interviewing Anne-Louise Sarks as the news came in. When we told her, she was so over the moon, she made this face:
Sarks even got the excited cast to record an awesome tribute Vine for Taylor Swift.
