I don't remember my prom

Click the 2nd picture below the video and press play for the original video. It was deleted from Youtube.

Parents are reacting to sexually explicit video that's surfaced from Murphy High School prom.

The video shows students dancing to loud music. The ones featured in the video are either mugging for the camera or, in some cases simulating sex acts with their dancing.

In the nine minute edited video some people try to stop the shooter from recording the dancing. The video was posted to YouTube on April 2nd has about 11-hundred hits today.

We showed the video to parents around downtown Mobile this afternoon. Most people we talked with said this just wasn't appropriate behavior for high school students.

"I'm outraged but not surprised because I've seen this sort of stuff coming for a few years," Theresa McPherson, Exec. Director Lights of Empowerment.

The Mobile County Public School System released a statement saying it does not condone inappropriate behavior. "Students need to value themselves and value others when students behave badly it reflects poorly on the entire school and the students' parents. Students need to think before they act."

This isn't something school administrators want to see. The principal of Murphy High School says he was initially horrified by a video posted to YouTube from the schools prom. He says they had 26 chaperones and five administrators at the convention center that night. 31 people were watching more than 800 kids. Smith says they didn't see anyone doing these freaky moves.

When we see it we break it up, I don't think anybody observed this, says Smith. They may not have had enough chaperones or it may be hard to spot. When kids do this they huddle to avoid adult eyes. The principal says the vast majority of students behaved themselves that night. This is just a slice of what happened that night. The video - which was pulled off line after we broke the story - only shows nine minutes out of a four hour long prom. Smith says even though a small amount of students acted out of line it's not okay and they may pursue disciplinary action.

I am going to hold those students accountable what I am going to do I haven't decided yet but they definitely need to be held accountable and they're parents need to know they were involved in this, says Smith.

As someone with 18 and 20 year old daughters this is disgusting. I know younger FBG's on the giving end of this might think differently. You might think differently when you have daughters of your own. I actually saw this last month when I was on my Club Trip in the Bahamas and it happend to be Spring Break. Back in the day the angle was making sure you had the girl you wanted when the long version of Reasons from Earth Wind and Fire came on for the last slow dance. Young people - learn to dance. Seriously. Girls - have some self respect. In my opinion this is one of the bigger scams ever. Hard to believe girls fell for this as the only way to dance now. If they are that dumb........

The only ones to blame are the girls themselves imo. They're just being who they are.

You know parents are the same, no matter time nor place. They don't understand that us kids are going to make some mistakes. So to you other kids all across the land, there's no need to argue. Parents just don't understand.

As a student and teacher, over the last 15 years, I have been to many Proms and I must say that males and females simulating sex acts has occurred at every Prom I have been at. That is just how people are dancing now. As a teacher, I'd break it up, but what I can do when the song, "Grind On Me" is playing and the students are grinding on each other. It isn't a good thing, but this is how people are dancing now.

What I remember is my mom putting us in the limo that 2 friends and I saved up for and making sure the driver would not allow drinking. We then gave the driver $20, picked up everyone, got drunk, smoked about 30 joints and had sex in the back. That was 1988. Kids are so much worse now.

Those girls aren't doing anything in that vid with their clothes on that they haven't done in many other places with their clothes off.

That girl in the green dress was working it hard on Al Harris.

All kidding aside, that was bad. I hope I can teach my daughter better self respect.

The girls are the ones leading the way on the erotic dancing front, not the boys. What are the girls getting scammed out of anyway? Missing out on a chance to do the Waltz?

Some say women hold the key to maintaining civilization, because men are dogs and will naturally act like depraved lunatics without a woman's civilizing influence.

Civilization is in trouble.

I don't think I would want to be the person that uploaded the video. In hindsight, that doesn't seem like a good idea.

Blame MTV for the grind type dancing and of course the parents allowing their daughters to watch it.

First of all, most of these kids are probably sexually active. Second, it is in Mobile. Third, get a life, most of these kids will be in college or out in the work force next year. Not much to see here.

Nothing to see here. Go to any club out here in the Bay and you'll see young professionals such as myself doing this.

This is why I have always had the opinion that dance clubs > strip clubs.

ETA: How do you think girls dance in Vegas too?

It is funny when we get these kind of threads how many FBGs act like they spent their senior year free time in prayer and bible study.

I think it's more about what people do or how they act in public. There should be a certain sense of self respect/dignity.But I guess if your generation was raised watching Jersey Shore, then you don't know better.

Apparently this high school has all kinds of problems. Two kids attacked a teacher in the hallway with brass knuckles

No its just now days everybody has a camera phone. I would bet 20-25 years ago we could get away with more and did worse things on average than kids today.

Yeah, stuff still happened back in the day but we had to work for it a bit back then. It's going to be great to see this generation of guys on the receiving end of Jersey Turnpikes have daughters. They might view the world differently. Of course by that time 85% of girls will be chickenheading by 5th grade.

Meh. Nothing different than what goes on in a club every weekend. That's all Prom is, a night at the club. Only difference is you're in dress clothes. I remember people showing up drunk out of their minds at my prom.

I haven't watched the video, but someone tell me the difference between adults being upset about this video, my parents' generation getting upset about the style of dancing we did in high school, and their parents getting upset about the way they danced and Elvis' overt sexuality?
