NBC to air Transylvania’s Delta Sigma Phi lip dub video in Taylor Swift tribute

LEXINGTON Ky.—Now with more than 4 million views, a lip dub video by the brothers of Transylvania University’s Delta Sigma Phi is about to go prime time. NBC recently asked the Sigs if the network could air their rendition of Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” during a tribute to the pop star on the March 29 iHeartRadio Music Awards.

Swift also gave the fraternity 76 tickets—one for each member plus a date—to her Oct. 20 concert in Lexington. In a tweet, she invited them to a show after the video went viral.

From “Good Morning America” to a mention in Malaysia, numerous media stations and websites have featured the lip dub, which the Sigs made late last summer.
