Oh God, someone made an earthquake parody music video to “Shake It Off”

Everyone copes with our state's earthquake epidemic in their own unique way.

I, for example, try to make light-hearted jokes about them on the Internet to mask my genuine fear that a big one is going to strike soon and kill us all. Some like to show up at rallies, wave signs and yell into microphones demanding that a moratorium on wastewater injection be put in place to prevent future quakes. Others, such as our elected officials and energy companies, simply work together to stall research, mislead the public, and pray the quakes just go away on their own.

We also have people like this guy:

That's Adam Sechrest. He recently gathered up his buddies from the church singles group and put together a parody music video called "Quake It Off." It's to the tune of "Shake It Off," because you know, earthquakes shake and stuff.

Check it out:

That's pretty cool! It's good to see James the Marvel's kids are doing well. Where did he get those socks? They go well with the jean shorts.

Anyway, I think I found the solution to the earthquake crisis. Starting today, let's call the CEO of every energy company operating a wastewater disposal well in Oklahoma and play this song on repeat until real action is taken. They'll shut down every disposal well in the state. Crisis solved.

Seriously, what did we just watch? Not to be the hater who's going to hate hate hate, but I'm not sure I'm going to be able to shake that thing off for a while. The concept wasn't bad, but I've heard better vocals from two cats fighting in my crawl space. He should have hired the losers from "Beard Like Harden" to help sing, then it would have gone viral.
