An Alabama high school principal is going viral with his Cornavirus-themed "Can't Touch This" parody video.
The video is a parody of MC Hammer's '80s hit song "U Can't Touch This." Childersburg High School Principal Quentin Lee wears tailored suits, a face mask and gloves as he dances around while wielding tools to sanitize classrooms.
The video racked up 5 million views since it was uploaded to YouTube on July 28. "COVID! Is stressing me, all the updates from the CDC. Lysol! Can't be found, I've looked all around this town," Lee raps.
He sneaks up on students using a digital thermometer, a measuring tape for social distancing, and a can of Lysol spray. "You can't touch this!" he tells the students.
Lee told a reporter he hopes his efforts brings a smile to the faces of students and gives them confidence when they return to school in the fall.
"We are working tirelessly to make sure school is a place where students can be accepted, loved and clean," he said. "Everybody needs love, regardless of political party or ethnic background. If we can allow people to laugh and forget about their problems, then we've accomplished the goal."
