Watch: School Teachers' Snow-Day Rap Video Goes Viral

This isn't your typical school-closure announcement

Thursday, Feb. 13, 2014

Share this on Facebook?

Two teachers at Durham Academy, a private school in North Carolina, came up with a novel way to announce the school's closure today due to the winter storm: They rapped the announcement over Vanilla Ice's "Ice, Ice, Baby." No wonder the video has gone viral. They make a great pair.

That's that beat & basic notes of a 20 year old tune & "Ice Ice Baby" are the Real lyrics and that
makes this all the better & funnier because we ALL wanted out of school. Is Ice or Snow fell from
the Heavens, we didn't sleep on the chance a flake would fall & hit without us knowing or hearing it
hit the "Streets"!??! They still got the exact way I felt waiting all night long to see if the school board
was going to let us go at 9, 10, 12 or go late & leave early(rare) or the Bonus Round was daybyday
off school to play Going so crazy in our head/Then playing chickenagainst cars with our sleds...cuz
we got out without any parental wactch....free to be stupid w/ no parents to watch over us...great
times even in the mid 70's-80's when I did it! I'm older than the teachers but I felt the same way when we .......GOT OUT of SCHOOL for ICE DAYS, yes it's still as great as EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It was so fun to watch and listen to these two. I imagine that they are also great in the classroom with the students.

Why is this the wrong message to send to young people? There was nothing inappropriate about this whatsoever. My guess is you associate the beats with black culture and black people are scary and bad, thus rap music (with fun, wholesome lyrics)= wrong message?
