'Shake It Off' By Walk Off The Earth Is The Most Laid Back Taylor Swift Cover You'll Hear (VIDEO)

Two years ago, Canadian band Walk Off the Earth lit up the Internet with a cover of Gotye's "Somebody That I Used To Know" with five people playing a single guitar.

Somehow, they made that overplayed song better.

Now, the Burlington, Ont.-based group has tackled Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off" on instruments including ukuleles, shakers and boxdrum, in a video uploaded to YouTube on Tuesday.

With instruments like those, it's only appropriate that they played the song on a beach at sunset, like they'd taken off to Hawaii and "shaken off" the rigours of the working world.

We're not yet ready to say whether this cover tops Swift's original, but we like it a lot. And it seems many others do too — it had over 330,000 hits as of Wednesday night.

Take a look at the video for 'Somebody That I Used to Know" and tell us which one you like better.
