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.
