No haters are gonna hate on Postmodern Jukebox‘s most recent cover.

The YouTube cover stars give Taylor Swift’s latest hit “Shake It Off” a vintage twist in their newest video. YouTuber and American Idol contestant Von Smith takes the lead on this number, turning Swift’s straight-up pop stylings into a vintage Motown track.

While we do spy a tambourine player in the background of this cover video, we’re disappointed to report it’s not the Daily Dot’s favorite tambourine star, Tim Kubart. However you can see Smith and the rest of Postmodern Jukebox on tour this fall.
