As anyone who has ever been a high school student knows, when the principal is talking you’d rather be doing anything else.
Students at Whitmer High School in Toledo, Ohio were acutely aware of this feeling when their principal was talking to them before their Homecoming football game. Students were stunned when one of the teachers interrupted the principal at the pep rally and told him to go take a seat.
Bruno Mars won big at the Grammys this year, but he’s been a cultural force long before that. His song “Uptown Funk” could be heard everywhere and it’s iconic line – “Don’t believe me, just watch” – became an internet meme.
But for the teachers at Whitmer High, it was their cue to take the floor at the pep rally for a flash mob dance routine.
It began with just a few teachers busting a move to the catchy pop tune, as students laughed and cheered at the surprise performance. But it had only just begun…
As the song played on, other teachers rushed out onto the floor and joined in the choreographed dance. Soon the Homecoming court, the school resource officers, and even the two furry mascots got in on the fun too!
