UW-Milwaukee Chancellor and students do graduation Carpool Karaoke
The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee has released a new graduation video that spoofs James Cordon's carpool karaoke, with Chancellor Mark Mone chauffeuring multiple graduates to UWM Panther Arena for Sunday's commencement ceremony.
The video follows last year's takeoff on "Can't Stop The Feeling," which received more than 282,000 views on YouTube after Justin Timberlake shared it from his Twitter account.
The video starts out with Miley Cyrus "Party in the USA" followed by Bruno Mars "Uptwon Funk". Whitney Houston's "I Want to Dance with Somebody" and Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" rounded out the performance including an appearance by UW-M's panther mascot.
The video was created by student workers in UWM's University Relations. It stars the following members of the Class of 2017: Former UWM Student Association President Mike Sportiello (Biochemistry, Pre-Med), Bo Bayerl (Journalism, Advertising, & Media Studies), Teryn Bordwell (Journalism, Advertising, & Media Studies), Melanie Cain (Marketing), Malie Cotto (Marketing), Max Dalebroux (Marketing), Elora Hennessey (Photography), Cassidy Hepp (Social Work), Robbye Lucero (Linguistics), Jazz Nance (Social Work), Juan Orjuela (Biological Sciences and Conservation & Environmental Sciences), Amanda Porter (Journalism, Advertising, & Media Studies), Kalin Reed (Architecture), Amy Siever (Higher Education Administration), Jaclyn Stoczanyn (Educational Policy and Community Studies), and Gayana Wanniarachchi (Kinesiology and Women's & Gender Studies).
Over 3,400 students graduated from UW-Milwaukee on Sunday.
