Video of the day: Texas A&M Bush School students greet George H.W. Bush with flash mob

Video of the day!


CBS News has more:

Finishing up what he thought was an orthodox photo op March 1 at the Bush School of Government and Public Service at the College Station, Texas, university, the 88-year-old Bush – joined by his wife, former first lady Barbara Bush, and his granddaughter, Bush 43’s daughter Jenna Bush Hager – was besieged by several dozen students spontaneously bursting into a choreographed rendition of Brooks & Dunn’s “Boot Scootin’ Boogie.”

“That’s a flash mob, grandpa,” Bush Hager could be seen explaining to a visibly bewildered Bush, whose mouth hung agape.

Organized by Flash Mob America, the three-minute performance was a classic nod to country: A spirited “yeehaw!” kicked off the ordeal, followed by knee-slapping and mime-lassoing. Students and the dean rewrote the lyrics for the chorus to say, “the Bushwhacker Boogie,” a shout-out to the school body’s nickname.

Flash Mob America posted more about it on its Twitter feed.

Check out some of the photos posted by the student newspaper of the George Bush School of Government and Public Service.

Indeed. Nothing like ending the day with a warm heart and a smile.

    Every bit the man an 18-year-old Navy fighter pilot knew he could be.

    Yeah, I admit it. When he spoke at Pearl for the 50th, at the end, I was peeling onions.

    Great job. Made me smile. Bush was a great president…. one of the best. History will be written about him and his Son and the mark they left on America.

      I may not have always agreed with some of the things that the Bush presidents did but I know without a doubt they love this country and always did what they thought was best for it- AND both of their wives are classy ladies- all unlike the ONE that sits in the oval office and his wife- classy and/or love this country is not in their vocabulary.

    It is great to see him out and about. A good man that truly understands the meaning of service. Dug this up on the internet, seems like a perfect addition to the above pictures.

    Same man, some number of years ago.
