We only wish we had a teacher this cool...

Watch as Scot Pankey, a theater teacher at A. Maceo Smith New Tech High School in Dallas, pulls together an "Uptown Funk" dance video that's nothing short of amazing.

He takes the infectious tune and proves that the best way to enjoy it is to straight up dance. With a lot of help from students at the high school, Scot is seen dancing his way from one grouping to another, sometimes running down hallways, to capture all the action in just one take.

Scot explained to the Dallas Morning News, "I heard the song before Christmas and fell in love with it. We are a project-based school...You give the students a project, put them in teams, and they have to come up with solutions. They had three weeks to work on it, then present as a group what they learned."

He added, "I told them, 'I am not a dancer, but I'd love to do this and go on this journey with you, and we can all learn from it and have a good time.'"

And it was definitely fun, as Scot explained, "We had a great time. I am overwhelmed by the response. I am honored. It's all been very positive."

Now if Ellen DeGeneres could just book this guy on her show, they could have a dance off.
