Dallas Gym Teacher, Students Create Awesome ‘Uptown Funk’ Lip Dub
Scott Pankey is a gym teacher at A. Maceo Smith New Tech High School in Dallas. He and his students loved the song "Uptown Funk" by Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars so he decided to make a project out of it.
"We are a project-based school - there are only two in the Metroplex - and that means you give the students a project, put them in teams, and they have to come up with solutions," Pankey explained to the Dallas Morning News. "They had three weeks to work on it, then present as a group what they learned. I told them, ‘I am not a dancer, but I’d love to do this and go on this journey with you, and we can all learn from it and have a good time.’”
And the results are amazing. It is done in one take, which is pretty impressive. He says he's not a dancer, but you could have fooled me.
