Students at Skyview High School in Billings, Montana, might get out of their world history finals this year — if they can somehow get Taylor Swift to call their teacher.
A student named Ike Stoner came up with the deal — and the instructor, Colter Pierce, agreed to it. If Stoner could use the Internet to get Swift to give Pierce a call, then the students would be exempt from their exams, KTVQ reports.
“Pretty much all semester, I’ve been talking about Taylor Swift,” Pierce said when asked why the “Shake It Off” singer was the celebrity chosen for this contract. Stoner admitted that the deal started out as “kind of a joke,” but as it has gained more and more likes and shares on Twitter and Facebook, that phone call seems possible.
Stoner has been circulating a picture of the contract — which was drawn up and signed on the classroom whiteboard — along with a photo of himself and Pierce shaking hands to seal the deal:
So far, Swift hasn’t acknowledged the stunt — but she’s got plenty of time until finals begin. Your move, Tay.
