Love for Taylor Swift is so strong these days that it has created a disruption in time itself. Or so it seems, after watching a video mash-up of the platinum-selling superstar's hit "Shake It Off" and a 1989-era aerobics video.

Wisconsin-based athletic club worker Thomas Jung posted the pairing on his YouTube channel Tuesday and it quickly went viral, racking up over 850,000 hits in just a few days — thanks in part to one key endorsement, from La Swift herself.

It's a simple concept, and a perfect pairing in more ways than just musically, since Swift's new album is in fact called "1989." But it's also educational: Who knew there was such a thing as aerobic championships? (Which, by the way, is still a thing.)

"I guess everyone was wrong when they said Taylor's songs were about her exes," Jung noted to TODAY.com. "They are clearly about '80s workouts!"
