"Sound of Silence" Snow Day Announcement Video

Principals Suit Up as Simon and Garfunkel For an Epic "Sound of Silence" Snow Day Announcement

Two Oregon principals went above and beyond to deliver the news of their schools' snow day closures. Rather than firing off an automated phone call or email to parents, Junction City middle school principal Justin Corey and high school principal Brian Young teamed up to make the announcement with a hysterical video. Wearing turtlenecks and wigs to mimic Simon & Garfunkel, the school administrators remixed the folk rock duo's hit song "The Sound of Silence," swapping in lyrics pertaining to the weather conditions. The results are nothing short of applause-worthy.

They put their rhyming skills on display, singing lines like, "Kids wake their parents yelling 'Snow! Oh my!' Then they're out the door while older siblings cue Fortnite," all while sitting in front of a snowy stock image. Their first video was such a hit among local news stations that Justin and Brian joined forces for two more funny videos, one that involves a "Piano Man" remix and another that features "Wake Me Up Before You Go Go!" Do these guys deserve a spot in this year's talent show or what?
