Click It

In my boredom lastnight I reverted to an old pastime of googling people and seeing what I can find about them online.  I typed in a guy’s name that I used to work and be friends with but have long since lost contact.  Last I’d heard about him was that he was a first grade teacher in my hometown and even though he’d only been teaching for a short amount of time, he was a favorite among the kids, parents, and other teachers.  Can’t say I’m really surprised because he always had that thing – personality, charisma or whatever – that you just knew he was going to be a great teacher.

He and his students put together a hilarious music video parody to Whip It for a chance to win $25,000 for an interactive classroom makeover.  From the little reading I could find, it was a contest spanning the US, Canada, New Zealand, and Austrailia.  Their video made it to the finals but from there I don’t know if they won or not.  But even with the contest over, I had to share this video for your viewing pleasure.  Hope you all enjoy it as much as I do.

  1. LMAO!!
    I loved that !
    They looked like they had a blast making it.

    Would love to know if they won.

    Enjoy your site too.


    Thanks for stopping by! This video makes me want to be back in the first grade all over again. I have no clue if they won but if I ever find out I’ll let everyone know.

  2. that video is Hillarious and AWESOME. Who is that guy? He looks a little familiar, but I don’t know why he would…he kind of just has that familiar kind of face, you know?

    I don’t know how many times I’ve seen this video but it cracks me up each time. I worked with him at UCA and you probably met him at my mission farewell. That’s probably why he looks familiar to you.

  3. As I read this post I TOTALLY thought you were setting up the story of this great teacher friend only to tell us that you Googled up a whole series of criminal offenses….WHY AM I SO JADED!?!?!?!?


    Nope, not this time. He’s a stand up teacher!

  4. First: I do not think I will ever hear the original song the same way again.

    Second: Um, I kind of thought something similar to Romi.

    I know right? I’m now going to picture this music video every time I hear the song!
