A new day, a new parody of a new song from a headmaster. This time it’s all about the corona virus.
While states are debating whether schools should resume personal lessons in September, Dr. Quentin J. Lee, the headmaster of Childersburg High School in Alabama, set a parody music video for MC Hammers 1
With a mask on his face and a bottle of hand disinfectant and a non-contacting forehead thermometer in his hands, Lee raved about the many COVID-19 safety measures that must be carried out in schools. He forced six feet of social distancing in the halls, handed gloves to students, cleaned surfaces with Lysol, and sang about the importance of washing hands.
Do you remember the good old days when school leaders used to make videos of the snowy day or carefree parodies of “Uptown Funk” or Rebecca Black’s “Friday”? Now let’s instead watch and watch depressing videos about stressful CDC guidelines and deadly viruses. How times have changed.
In a recent interview with the Alabama News Center, Lee said he wrote the coronavirus rap in just 15 minutes. “I really enjoy doing stupid things,” said Lee. “I published a song about my feelings about COVID in May and I was just screaming at my desk. It got the national media to do it and I thought it was time to do something else.”
At the time of writing, Lee’s “U Can’t Touch This” parody had over 3 million views on YouTube, and the lyrics are extremely catchy.
The next time you navigate the pandemic outside your home, sing “STOP! Sanitize” for yourself and remember to stay safe.
