One thing I will say about the video you are about to watch, featuring middle schoolers participating in a flash mob in order to say goodbye to their retiring principal, is that it is very sweet. At one point the principal says, “Oh no, not a flash dance!” and it is the cutest. His reaction is wonderful. But the second thing I’ll say about it is that it makes me VERY grateful to have attended middle and high school in a pre-YouTube era. Can you imagine the flash mobs and viral videos you’d have to be a part of at this point?! “Classroom 4B is bettter than classroom 4A Harlem Shake! #spiritweek.” That is a tweet YOUR TEACHER TWEETED, LINKING TO A VINE OF YOUR 6TH GRADE CLASSROOM DOING THE HARLEM SHAKE. Hahah. What I’m saying is all make believe, but it still makes me upset. “Everyone must report to the gym after school to learn the moves for Ms. Lindy’s flash mob, in order to raise funds for the school’s field trips.” I don’t know. I haven’t been in school for a while, but I know it would be awful!
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! (Though, like I said, it is very sweet.) (Sad to see you go, Mr. Principal!) (Via ViralViral.)
