We're nearing the end of the week, but that doesn't mean we can't have a nice viral video as a pick-me-upper for the weekend.
This Thursday's good vibes video comes from none other than Taylor Swift. The video was actually taken by one of her backup dancers, Robert Green, when he was sharing with his mom for the first time the wonderful news that he was hired to be one of Swift's dancers for her upcoming 1989 world tour.
Green, a dancer and choreographer, holds the phone in front of his face with the speaker turned on so we can hear what his mom is going to say. However, much of what she says in the video is barely understandable. Most of the time, Green's mom just screams and shrieks in happiness at the news that her son is going to travel the world with the Taylor Swift.
At first, Green, who is himself barely able to hold his excitement, only tells her he booked a world tour, which his mom couldn't believe for a seconduntil it sinks in and she goes insane with happiness. Then he tells her he is going on a world tour with not just anyone but with the biggest pop star in the world. We soon find ourselves replaying the moment over and over again because it is simply perfect.
The video is nearly a good five minutes of hysterical crying and screaming, but we can tell you all those tears cried by Green's mom and Green himself are ones of joy.
"We can't even carry on a conversation right now because you're hysterical," Green tells his mother. "But I love it!"
On Thursday, Swift shared Green's video on Twitter.
"I feel so lucky to get to perform alongside people who love it this much," she says.

The country singer turned pop star has a reputation for being warm and friendly with her supporters, but this tweet shows she also treats her backup dancers and staff the same way.
Her 1989 world tour is set to kick off on Tuesday, May 5, in Japan, after which, she is set to take on another 77 shows in various countries in Europe, North America, and Oceania.
