One-Minute-Long, 17-Song Taylor Swift Mashup Goes Viral
In the internet age of instant YouTube stardom, aspiring performers are always looking for a new angle to get that breakout viral clip that could help launch them. It looks like guitarists Chad Neidt and Brian O'Sullivan have found one; their newly-uploaded clip -- in which they perform a jaw-dropping double-digit medley of Taylor Swift songs -- has garnered more than 25,000 views since it was uploaded at the beginning of May.
The one-minute mashup concept is the brainchild of Neidt, an L.A.-based musician and comedian who has given a similar YouTube treatment to works by the Beatles, Michael Jackson, Nickelback and others. He invited O'Sullivan to take part in the Swift medley, in which the pair cleverly re-arrange 17 fan-favorites into a single minute, including 'Our Song,' 'Teardrops on My Guitar,' Fifteen,' 'Mean' and 'Back to December,' culminating hilariously with 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.'
