Backstreet’s again alright!
Properly, type of.
First, a bit context.
As you bear in mind, Childersburg Excessive Faculty Principal Dr. Quentin Lee’s parody video of MC Hammer’s “Can’t Touch This” to encourage college students to remain wholesome earlier this month went viral and for good cause.
He’s powerful to prime, however academics at Georgia’s Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe Excessive Faculty raised the ante with a now viral ensemble boys-band efficiency with the identical message to the tune of Backstreet Boys’ 1999 hit “I want it that Way.”
“Half of our students coming Monday and Tuesday, half coming on Thursday and Friday, some doing digital,” trainer and coach Amanda Campbell instructed WDEF earlier this week concerning the return to high school. “I was trying to think how we could reach all of our students and you know, give them something positive to come back to school so I thought of doing a video, and so I asked these guys here to help.”
As you’ll be able to inform by the video, the academics have been all in.
“I will make sure that we are on point with our costumes and our choreographer because if we’re going to do it, we’re going to do it right and we’re going to do it better than anybody,” trainer Sting Weber instructed WDEF.
The tune, “I Want It That Way,” was renamed “In School It’s That Way.”
It goes a bit one thing like this.
“We are … back in school and want
“To make you believe
“When we say… Please stay 6 feet away.
“But we are 2 yards apart
“Can’t reach to your heart
“When you say… Please stay 6 feet away.”
Tip of the cap to those educators. Not a foul approach for his or her college students to begin their faculty 12 months, or, in our case, finish our week.
And for enjoyable, we couldn’t not present the unique video to point out the similarities.
Could dad and mom in every single place rejoice within the ’90s nostalgia even when it’s a overseas idea to the youngsters.
