Taylor Swift’s song “Shake It Off” has just been covered by a seven-year-old boy who goes by the names “Red Headed Persian Entertainer” and “Big Red,” and now his spirited performance of the hit has gone completely viral. The boy posted video of his passionate rendition of the song on Facebook on Wednesday, and it has already garnered nearly 2 million views. Watch the video below!

In the video, “Big Red” shakes it, twirls, spins, and jumps around, all while holding a microphone and singing along with Swift.

As Gossip Cop previously reported, Big Red isn’t the only entertainer to pay tribute to Swift through a cover song. Ryan Adams announced on Twitter Thursday that he would be recording an entire album of Swift cover songs, including “Shake It Off.” And in June, Gossip Cop featured video of “America’s Got Talent” contestant Alex Boye and his band giving a similarly spirited performance of the song.

Taylor Swift has yet to comment on Big Red’s cover version of her infectious tune. Watch seven-year-old performer Big Red, a.k.a. Red Headed Persian Entertainer, cover Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” in the video below, and tell us what you think.
