Hot For Teacher Gets A Facelift!
Singer Dave Lee Roth is having the time of his life right now. Van Halens classic rock track “Hot For Teacher” has been re-released today by trashyTrisha Paytas—a YouTube celebrity/blogger who is immensely popular on social media. (Two YouTube channels totaling 2 million subscribers, and huge Facebook and Twitter pages). Her new 4-song EP. FAT CHICK was released last Friday. Trisha is a huge fan of old Van Halen and all things ’80s, and her video director, Kale Flowers, is a diehard VH fan. The first video project they wanted to undertake was a spoof of Van Halen’s classic MTV video.
Paying homage to the original video, Trisha and her team filmed in John Marshall High—the same high school featured in VH’s video. Trisha even learned some of Diamond Dave’s dance moves, and can be seen wearing Eddie Van Halen’s Striped High Tops and the band’s “Live 1982″ Lion t-shirt in part of the video. She just wants to have fun and doesn’t take anything too seriously.
Tricia and her director reached out to “the man” and were blown away when he said yes and contributed an introduction to their video. Watch the video—with the recently filmed introduction by David Lee Roth.
