SYRACUSE, New York– Talk about an awesome BFF. A man in Syracuse, New York is reaching out to superstar Taylor Swift to help make his friend’s dream come true.

Joe Bufano’s YouTube video begins:

“Hi, Taylor. I hope this message gets to you.. I’m sending you this to share with you a story about one of your biggest fans, Ronnie Brower, who has made some huge changes in his life. He has an amazing story…”

Joe tells the singer that he and Ronnie will be coming to her Cleveland concert on June 3 and he is asking that she somehow make the concert special for him. Joe says Taylor’s music inspired Ronnie’s amazing weight loss. According to Joe’s video, 700 days ago, Ronnie weighed 675 lbs. Doctors told him he wouldn’t live to see 35 if he didn’t make changes.

So, he did. He went on an amazing weight loss journey, all while listening to Taylor Swift’s music and lost 425 lbs.

According to, if Ronnie lost all the weight— which he did– Joe would buy their tickets to the concert. Then, he decided to try and make even more dreams come true for his friend and made the video for the singer.
