Watch out, Bruno Mars! This high school teacher and his students just slayed ‘Uptown Funk’ [VIDEO]
A. Maceo Smith New Tech High School (geez, that’s a long name!) has the coolest director/theatre arts teacher in the country, hands down.

Not only is Scot Panicky rad enough to be into pop music and viral videos, but he’s so chill, he decided to recruit his students, show off his dance moves and make a must-watch video set to Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson’s ‘Uptown Funk’.

“I heard the song before Christmas and fell in love with it,” Panicky told the Dallas Morning News. “We are a project-based school and that means you give the students a project, put them in teams, and they have to come up with solutions. 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.’” NOT A DANCER? Pfft.

The kids agreed (of course), let down their guards, took note of their prof’s amazing moves and had fun with an awesome project. The result is pure joy and we think Ellen needs to have Panicky on her show!
