The school year ended on a rather difficult note in 2020. Now that the 2020-2021 school year is about to start, everybody’s wondering about the way things are going to move forward. Both students and parents are stressed out over the situation, especially when it comes to continuing education amid the COVID 19 pandemic.
Sometimes, we just need to add a little humor in our life to make things a little less stressful. At an Alabama high school, a principal is doing just that. He chose the MC Hammer classic from the 90s, “U Can’t Touch This” and turned it into a hilarious parody.
The principle of Childersburg High School in Alabama, Quentin J. Lee thought it would be a good idea to make the video. He wanted the students to come to class smiling.
“Doing silly stuff is something I really enjoy,” Lee told Alabama NewsCenter. “I released a song in May about my feelings toward COVID, and it was just me sitting at my desk screaming. It made national media, and I figured it was time to do something different.”
The video is getting a lot of attention. When you see the moves that he puts on in the video, you realize that he is an energetic man that isn’t afraid to work for the students. It even attracted the attention of MC Hammer, who acknowledged the parody on Twitter, saying: “Salute Dr. Lee.”

It took about 24 hours to put the production together and that included writing the lyrics and editing the video. He said that the song was written in about 15 minutes. A few high school students were recruited to be in the video as he works his way through the halls of the school.
You can see Lee dancing in the hallways and classrooms and there are a number of props, including a tape measure used for social distancing.
The video has gone viral and has millions of views. Watch it for yourself and see why:SKM: below-content placeholder
