Maine students parody Taylor Swift in catchy yearbook sales pitch

The students at Bath’s Morse High School are back at it.

Last year at this time, we posted about how the Shipbuilders were promoting their yearbook through a music video parody of Mark Ronson’s hit “Uptown Funk.”

Not to be outdone, the 2016 yearbook team changed the lyrics to Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off.”

Like last year’s video, the Morse kids are pretty clever with their words, starting off with: “I won’t see my face/I won’t be on one page/That’s what freshmen say”

And as we wrote in our post about last year’s parody, this is a school is one with a 125-and-counting-year-old alumni association with a tradition of annual banquets and graduation festivities.

Worth noting again, as well is the fact that in 2004, MTV filmed an episode of the television show “Made,” featuring a sophomore at the school who wanted to break out with a role in the school’s longstanding annual talent show, which is known by the shorthand “MoHiBa” — for “Morse High Bazaar.”

Here’s last year’s video, for reference:
