What A Feeling: Alberta high school teachers’ grad video goes viral

WATCH ABOVE: Salisbury Composite High School’s 2015 graduation video.

EDMONTON — For the second year, teachers at an Edmonton-area high school have bid adieu to graduating students with a video tribute. This year staff at Sherwood Park’s Salisbury Composite High School took a blast to the past with an 80s music video.

Several dozen teachers and staff members donned some fabulous 80s gear, complete with big hair, loud makeup and air guitar during an 11-song mashup featuring artists like Michael Jackson, Journey, Queen and Run D.M.C.

Among many things, the video shows staff breakdancing to Run D.M.C ‘s “Tricky”, getting decked out in the cosmetology lab to Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”, lifting weights to “Push It” by Salt-N-Pepa and welding while grooving to Flashdance’s “What A Feeling.”

The video was uploaded to YouTube two weeks ago, and as of Monday morning had been viewed over 50,000 times.
