Bruno Mars moved to tears by Dallas High School’s ‘UpTown Funk’ video
The tech students at A. Maceo Smith New Tech High School in Dallas have made Bruno Mars one happy man, so happy the Grammy award-winner was moved to tears.
Mars recently got to see the high school student’s choreographed dance video to his collaborated hit “UpTown Funk” with Mark Ronson. School Director and Theatre Arts teacher Scot Pankey and his students had fun producing this video. They danced their way through the school.
Pankey posted on his Facebook “So proud of my kids. We filmed this in one take! This is a great example of how a bunch of technology students dropped their fears, trusted their teacher and got down to Uptown Funk!!!!”
The video just posted a few days ago already has more than 3 million views.
Bruno Mars showed his appreciation to the teacher and students on Twitter.
What a great way to inspire students. Kudos to Scot Pankey and the school administration who allowed it to happen. Here’s hoping they get on Jimmy Kimmel, Ellen or even The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
