MC Hammer, Rick James, Alabama school principal teach students COVID safety

August 3, 2020

An Alabama high school principal took an MC Hammer classic and turned it into a coronavirus safety video. He also showed off some fly dance moves.

Water fountains? Vending machines? As Principal Quinton Lee raps it, "you can't touch this." With a no-contact thermometer, a ruler, and some impressive steps, Lee and a few students demonstrate how they are working to reinforce social distancing and prevent the virus from spreading as kids come back to school.

The video, which only took about an hour to film, has, for lack of a better phrase, gone viral, already having been viewed more than a million times.
