An Alabama high school principal’s parody of a 1990 classic hit has gone viral.

Dr. Quentin Lee, principal at Childersburg High School created a parody video of the 1990 MC Hammer classic “Can’t Touch This” to encourage students to stay healthy at school this year.

Since July 28, the video has been viewed more than a million times.

He told Alabama News Center he wrote the lyrics in 15 minutes, then called film director Jaylen Mitchell of City Vizualz to record it. Volunteers included several students, and teacher Jessica Veazey.
