When it comes to sports, it’s always nice to see professional athletes take part in community service during their free time off the field and recently–Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch decided to spend some time in an area he grew up to promote students attending class.

Lynch recently teamed up students from the Oakland United School District to create this awesome Portal A music video about the importance of attendance in school. As a former student himself in the Oakland United School District, Lynch realizes the importance of making sure students are receiving the proper education so they can be successful later in life.

Unfortunately, we live in a world where skipping class tends to be a popular trend–which is why Lynch and these kids created this music video. Instead of just stating a basic message, these kids decided to get creative by creating their own version of the hit Rihanna song “Please Don’t Stop the Music” to “I’m an Oakland School Kid.”

Not only does the song promote a good message, but it’s pretty catchy as well as these kids come up with some impressive lyrics that will be stuck in your head once you give it a listen. And the best part about this video–the hilarious appearances by Lynch himself throughout the video.

When considering how catchy this song is, maybe we’ll be lucky enough to see these kids from the Oakland United School District create a few more music videos down the road. A special thanks to our friends at Portal A for providing us with the music video!
