Girl Scout duo parodies Taylor Swift’s ‘Blank Space’ for maximum adorableness

'So you’re gonna buy some cookies / Or you’re gonna go down in flames.'

A pair of pint-sized cookie-peddlers have discovered the secret to sales success: combine delicious wares with the equally delicious pop tunes of Taylor Swift.

Girl Scouts Kaylee and Lexi posted this sickeningly sweet commercial to help sell their cookies to friends and family. To seal the deal, they transformed the lyrics of Swift’s chart-topping tune “Blank Space” to fit their organization’s irresistible sales tactics. Here’s a sample of the lyrics: 

Samoas, Do-si-dos. I can read you like a magazine. Toffee-tastic, Rah-rah raisins.
I’m dying to sell to you again. Grab your wallet and my hand, I’ll be selling cookies on your block this weekend. 
And I know you’ve heard about me, So hey, let’s be friends.

You have to watch this for yourself.

Naturally, the blank space is where they’ll write your name on the order form.

Last year, the duo made an equally infectious parody of Frozen‘s “Do You Want to Build a Snowman.” Is there a merit badge for Perfect Swift Tribute, or perhaps Most Creative Marketing Scheme?
