Man, this video really induces high school flashbacks. A group of seniors at Atlanta’s Marist School created it as part of the Green School Alliance’s Green Cup Challenge.

The challenge didn’t only involve rapping teenagers, though: schools that participated actually tried to reduce their energy use over four weeks.
