One high school valedictorian had a very important message for his graduating class: "All you have to do is 'Shake It Off.'"

Colin Yost, of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, then led his fellow seniors in a flash mob, showing off some impressive moves to Taylor Swift's hit song.

In a YouTube video posted of the performance, Yost's classmates, clad in white and maroon caps and gowns, show off their choreographed routine in the center of the school's gymnasium, drawing laughter, applause and cheers from their friends and family in the audience.

The clip has garnered more than 750,000 views since Yost posted it on Saturday. He's since also shared his full speech, in which he charmingly professes to being an "undercover nerd."

Portsmouth High's performance isn't the first take a cue from Swift.

Earlier this month, Hawaii's Kahuku High and Intermediate School's class of 2015 staged a similar dance routine to "Shake It Off," which also included "Uptown Funk" by Mark Ronson featuring Bruno Mars and the Jackson 5's "ABC."
