Some graduating students hired a mariachi band to follow their high school principal around for the day.
Una canción para el principal.
Once a student makes it all the way through four years of high school and stands at the precipice of graduation, there's really not a whole lot that the school principal can do to him or her.

If you want just a glimpse at what it might feel like to have so much power stripped away so suddenly, just gaze upon the befuddlement in evidence on this Santa Barbara principal's face as he patrols the halls of his school, followed by a mariachi band that was instructed by a bunch of students to dog his steps and serenade him with the traditional folk music of Mexico:
