Principal Announces Snow Day with an Epic Parody of ‘We Didn’t Start The Fire’
I've never seen someone who was SO destined to wind up on "Ellen".
The principal of Conestoga High School in Murray, Nebraska is a guy named David Friedli. And yesterday, he announced the school was canceled for a snow day by recording a four-minute parody of Billy Joel's "We Didn't Start the Fire".
And this thing had NO RIGHT to turn out as well as it did. It should've been super corny, but somehow, David sells it. Even though he's not a great singer... he's wearing sunglasses indoors... and he recorded it in his kitchen.
For a little taste, the lyrics start with, "Out on 42nd street, weather there is less than neat, snow is drifting, winds are blowing, it's a real mess."
And the chorus, of course, goes, "Staff didn't want a snow day, but the snow keeps falling so that's why we're calling."
