High school dude pulls out large dildo in the middle of pep rally

Administrators at a small high school on the fringes of suburban Chicago decided to postpone the school’s winter dance this year after a student triumphantly whipped out a fake penis during a school assembly.

The incident occurred late last week at Richmond-Burton High School.

Several versions of the event have been uploaded onto YouTube for posterity. This one shows the events more clearly and at a better angle than most. Another version of the video had been viewed over 60,000 times on YouTube as of Wednesday, reports the Northwest Herald.

The 14-second video shows a very typical slice of Americana gone awry.

The setting is a school assembly in the basketball gymnasium. The assembly appears to be designed to introduce the king and queen candidates for an upcoming high school dance—in this case, Richmond-Burton High’s Snowcoming Dance.

The gym is halfheartedly festooned with balloons. A couple — one male and one female — walks arm in arm between two rows of cheerleaders in maroon-and-white uniforms.

The couple walks confidently to the center circle of the basketball court. The female gets down on her knees and starts to pretend to worship the male. The male dances around a bit.

Then, the dude pulls out a long dildo and places it at his groin.

A look of shock and disgust fills the female’s face when she realizes what is going on, and she darts away.

Another longer YouTube video of the incident shows angry school officials leading the dildo-brandishing student away.

The Snowcoming Dance was supposed to occur the next day. It didn’t, though. Instead, school officials canceled the dance in response to some jerky kid who pulled out a fake penis for a couple seconds.

The dance is now described as “Postponed to TBA” on the Richmond-Burton High online events calendar.

Parents aren’t pleased with the decision.

“I can’t understand why the school would make such a horrible decision and punish the whole entire school for something that one child did,” parent Kimberly Meyer told the Northwest Herald.

Meyer has two daughters at the school. She noted that some parents have spent quite a bit of nonrefundable money on dresses and other apparel for the dance.

“I think [school administrators] were upset at the time and made a hasty decision,” she told the local paper.
