Principal Drops Funky ‘U Can’t Touch This’ Parody Before Reopening High School
Dr. Quentin Lee, head of Childersburg High School in its namesake town in Alabama, knew his students would need a morale booster before coming back to class during the coronavirus pandemic. So the former band director tapped his musical talents to write and record a parody of MC Hammer’s 1990 classic “U Can’t Touch This” — with a decidedly pro-hygiene theme.
Lee took just 15 minutes to rewrite the lyrics, according to Alabama NewsCenter, then called local filmmaker Jaylen Mitchell to record the tune. They also called upon a few students and teacher Jessica Veazey to play various roles in the video, which was filmed on the school’s campus.
