Students hire mariachi band to follow principal around Published: June 6, 2014

People across the Internet are congratulating the senior class at Santa Barbara High School today. Yes, it happens to be the last day of school, and so the Class of 2014 will prepare for graduation and life after homerooms and lunch breaks. But the Web's hat tip probably has more to do with the prank the outgoing students played on their principal, John Becchio, according to Yahoo's Trending Now.

On Tuesday Becchio arrived at the California high school to the welcome of a four-piece mariachi band. They started as soon as the principal walked into his office at 7:30 a.m.

"The senior class hired the musicians to follow Principal Becchio for one hour as he walked the hallways and conducted school business," the school wrote on its website. "It was a senior prank that delighted students and staff."
