A video made by staff and students at Mary G. Montgomery High School in Semmes has topped 500,000 views on Youtube. To be more precise, it now has about 580,000 views.
The video, shot and produced by former student Alex Kiker, is a spoof of the movie ‘The Greatest Show.’ It even got a twitter ‘like’ from star Hugh Jackman.
Teacher Joe Moody’s sociology class came up with the idea. In fact, it’s the third video in the past three years students have performed in. Last year the movie ‘La La Land’ was the subject.
The students used the video to learn about each other’s differences and understand them while despite the differences, they are all much alike.
Moody says they didn’t expect the viral attention the video brought, but they are glad people are enjoying it.
