As a naval aviator and war hero, an oil man and as the leader of the most powerful country in the world, former President George H.W. Bush has seen a lot in his day. A flash mob, though, was not on his lengthy list.
Texas A&M University students changed that when the former president and college namesake stopped by for a visit to the College Station campus earlier this month.
"That's a flash mob, grandpa," Bush Hager explained to a dumbfounded Bush.
Just inside of the doors of the Bush School of Government and Public Service, hundreds of students and faculty members welcomed Bush, along with his wife, Barbara, and his granddaughter, Jenna Bush Hager.
One suited student whooped, then a dozen or so more broke into a choreographed line dance to the tune of Brooks and Dunn's "Boot Scootin' Boogie," adapted as "The Bushwhacker Boogie" with lyrics to reflect the school's academics.
"That's a flash mob, grandpa," Bush Hager explained to a dumbfounded Bush. According to the Daily Mail, H.W.'s administration had orchestrated the event.
