Taylor Swift Responds to ‘Crazy’ College Kids Seeking Hugs
Taylor Swift has responded to the completion of a second challenge by Ryan Leander and Michael Wekall, the Auburn University students who created a website documenting their journey to receive a hug from their favorite superstar. They were asked to incorporate the most creative use of the number 13, and they accomplished 13 tasks, including 13 places to hug Taylor and stuffing 13 people in a small car.
"I cannot believe your response to the last challenge," says Taylor in a video blog. "You went up in a plane and had cars spelling out 13? You guys are crazy! That was unbelievable! I didn't expect anything that insane. Please tell your friends I said thank you, everybody that was involved. That was absolutely epic."
The 20-year-old then gave a hint to the boys for the next mission. "I have an idea for Challenge No. 3, and I think that this one should be time-based. I'm gonna send you an email at 12:30 PM Central time on Monday [April 26]. So, be waiting for an email, and that will have Challenge No. 3. And I love you guys so much. Thanks for putting so much into it. This is going to be fun."
Ryan and Michael took to their Twitter to say, "Ms. Swift. Let's just say we will be on our email at 12:30 sharp!"
Stay tuned to hear what kind of challenge Taylor comes up with next. In the meantime, she is scheduled to continue her Fearless tour in Lexington, Ky., on Thursday.
