Disclaimer: The tune is incredibly catchy, it may cause you “stuck-song syndrome.”

As schools, teachers and parents are preparing for the return of in-person classes amid Covid-19 pandemic, this Alabama principal is going viral for his unique approach to ensure his students’ safety.

Dr. Quentin J. Lee, the principal at Childersburg High School in Alabama, came up with a skit video with a pro-hygiene theme, “U Can’t Touch This”, based on an MC Hammer’s 1990 jam.

His 2-minute video already has around 3 million views on Youtube.

In the video, Quentin is dancing around wearing a mask, holding a sanitizer bottle and a thermometer, rapping all the new safety health protocols surrounding coronavirus.

We gotta say this; it’s quite creative!

He instructed students to maintain social distance in the hallways, distributed gloves to students, wiped surfaces using Lysol, and kept on rapping the significance of handwashing.

It took him only 15 minutes to rewrite the lyrics, and a local filmmaker Jaylen Mitchell helped him to record a video.

Lee said that he really enjoys being silly and doing fun stuff. He said that he first released a song in the month of May describing his feelings about the pandemic. As the video went viral, he, later on, decided to come up with something unique this time.

Instead of watching boring CDC health safety guidelines, Lee introduced a unique and creative approach to making his students learn the importance of coronavirus safety protocols.

So, the next time if you happen to navigate pandemic protocols outside of your home, don’t forget to sing out loud “STOP, Sanitize”.
