High School Boys Demonstrate Inappropriate Grinding For Their Principal

Get ready to cringe at the awkwardness … and be slightly aroused (in a these guys are still minors sort of way). Meet Brandon and Logan, the unsuspecting breakout stars of TruTV’s The Principal’s Office. (Yeah, we hadn’t heard of it either.) Facing a “grinding epidemic” at school dances, Principal Salisbury calls these two fellas down to his office to discuss the dos and don’ts of high school tangos, but wouldn’t you know it: These two students are the smart ass types, and want to know exactly what type of touching is inappropriate. This clip involves bending over.

    I’m laughing and I can’t stop. How awesome! Although the line “This is sooooo appropriate right now” really got me.

  • Ed

    I can’t decide whether to be be proud that the boys had no boundaries at all (in a good way), or horrified at teens that showed no respect for the authority figure.

    In any case, I’m grinning like an idiot.

  • alex the sea turtle

    I loved it. Will every episode be that great!

  • Tallskin

    LOL cute cheeky boys! – they certainly made a fool out of that head master on camera and he knew it!!

    And that headmaster looks the creepy religious type!

    So, are the boys gay? Or at least one of them? I think we should be told.

  • AladinSane

    “What if I’m just tying my shoe?”

    “Yea, and I’m just stretching behind him?”


    I wanna know when they turn 18..

  • brandon

    and then look.. we take pictures! hahahhahahahah..

    they’re hilarious

  • Jaroslaw

    Tallskin – we don’t agree on the religious issue, but I respect why you feel the way you do. But get off this one. (I’m referring to your comment about the headmaster being the creepy religious type) I didn’t get that at all. He is a principal, he wears a tie as part of his job. He was very cool with the boys who were obviously pretending not to understand.

    He should have told them specifically what was appropriate or not etc. – of course we need to remember this was a huge put-on for television.

  • Jaroslaw

    Having said all that, though, it is still hilarious.

  • David Dust

    In their defense, in the past I have bent over to tie my shoe and have been rear-ended inappropriately. It happens – although not nearly often enough.

    I love how they made their principle look like a total tool. Brandon and Logan are full of the awesome.

  • BrianZ

    OMG! LOL how did I miss them holding hands at the very end as they walk down the hall? I was laughing too much, that’s my excuse.

  • marco

    How long before we see these guys in an SCM video?

  • J.Kie

    Hahaha… That was great! Was cute how they walked off holding hands. hahah

  • Tallskin

    Jaroslaw – “Tallskin – we don’t agree on the religious issue, but I respect why you feel the way you do. ”


    “We?? Is this the royal “we” ?

    Sorry matey, but the respect does not flow both ways. I combat the religious at any opportunity. – Why do the religious always say that “I respect your POV but …” thing? Is it cos they know they are standing and defending a weak position, vis a vis the sky pixie thing? Is it cos your next comment is going to be “As a religious person I am offended by what you say” ? and they are getting their attack in first by a sort of passive aggression?


    I say “And that headmaster looks the creepy religious type!” not only cos the two words “creepy” and “religious” go together so well, but also because the whole reason for preventing the two teenage boys (and other boys and numerous teenage girls at the school) from touching each other is due to his FUCKING CREEPY CHRISTIAN MORALITY.

    The sky pixie morality that forces its values down all our throats, whether we are religious or not, and says that sex outside of marriage is wrong, that teenage sexual exploration between teens is wrong. That being gay is wrong (you could see quite clearly that those two boys were playing on this!! and that the headmaster wasn’t sure what the fuck was going on and whether he’d have to tell them off for playing at being gay!).

    No, his tie doesn’t enter into it, – the man was being a creepy christian authoritarian. And he looked at the camera as if to say, “I know you all agree with me, look how difficult it is to make kids follow our moral guidance” (ie our christian moral guidance).

    He may be a really nice man, but the morality he was enforcing was not.

    What the morality of our post religious world will look like, I am not sure, but I will predict that christian/islamic/judaic religious considerations will not figure in it and a whole generation will grow up not thinking sex is wrong or dirty.

  • AladinSane


    I’m an atheist and I think you’re a lil cuckoo.

  • Alan down in Florida

    Shame they’re seniors. I would have loved to see a reality show of the two of them going through senior year. They are too cool and hysterical.

  • RS

    Is this for real? A real “reality” show? Or is it a scripted mock reality show? I thought it was totally hilarious. And also cringingly hot.

  • Tallskin


    well cuckoo to you too!

  • geoff

    That is just too funny. I was never the smartass type in highschool but several of my friends were just like that….minus the ‘no boundaries’ issue.

  • dizzyspins

    this felt kinda fake–like the producers told them ahead of time to come up with some kind of homoerotic teasing to make the prinicipal look bad. I cant imagine meatheads like them just suddenly coming up with that spontaneously together.

    PS: Its much hotter if you turn the sound off ;)

  • tmomaslomez

    Not arousing, but hilarious!

  • nikko

    Though it was cute to me seeing these two guys being cocky, the principal was referring to them dirty dancing with girls, which I do find innappropriate amongst non-couples, especially teens(guy/girl). Would you want your teenage daughter being felt up at her high school dance? No thank you if that’s your morality.

  • HZA

    I love these dudes.

  • HZA

    Also, where is this school? I noticed all the WSU stuff in the background.

  • Cody

    That clip is better than wholre seasons of some of these other reality shows out there. Hell, it’s even better than scripted series!

    Those boys deserve an Oscar.

  • Plushie Schwartz

    Why is this the hottest thing I’ve seen in forever? I hate myself…but I LOVE these boys!

  • John from England(used to be just John but there are other John's)

    “These guys are still minors sort of way”


    You guys need to get your age limit thingy on par with the rest of the world!


    I was an adult at 16, not a minor!

  • Jaroslaw

    Gosh you are sensitive Tallskin – you are I are talking and I simply say well, “we” don’t agree. There is nothing Royal in that. Do you just like to argue?

    I could have said “you and I don’t agree” I don’t see any difference.

    You don’t have to respect religion and you can fight it all you want. I’m not threatened by that. I RESPECT that we have differing opinions and I’m not stupid enough to think religion hasn’t done some major bad things. In other words I can see why it turns off a lot of people. On balance though, I think it is a positive force. You don’t, fine. It is not a problem to ME that we differ.

    And you are OUT TO LUNCH on the headmaster thing. Why does he have to be Christian? PARENTS of all stripes & religious preferences – in the U.S. anyway – would have a problem with boys pawing their girls at a school sponsored dance. And unless I’m mistaken, it wasn’t the boys touching each other that was the problem – they were demonstrating the kind of touching that is or is not allowed.

  • donsnyc

    This is fucking hilarious!

  • BobP


  • tofer david

    this guy is really a principal….omg…

  • Jack Scribe

    Cute and cheeky…sure. But who and what are they putting on? I’m assuming they’re two in-your-face straight dudes who are bringing locker room humor out of the closet. Taken in a more severe light, this could be judged as a subtly homophobic scene.

  • dzerobc

    @Jack Scribe: Yes… the same way Stephen Colbert could be judged as right wing. They are mocking the principal. Playing on his prejudices to make him look like an idiot.

    Also, in the basic sense… just exploiting the situation that is probably already uncomfortable for the principal. The are just comfortable with eachother enough to be able to do this, and have a good sense of humour about it. And yes.. playing for the camera. Best bit of internet video I have seen in a long time.

  • Jaroslaw

    Yes, please let’s not forget this is a put on, playing for the camera – the boys AND the principal. If they don’t play along, the program producers find another school principal & students…

  • Kit

    @John from England(used to be just John but there are other John’s):

    You were still a minor at 16, John. The age of consent in the UK is 16, but the age of majority is still 18. Same as in the US, where 16 is the age of consent in most states, but you don’t become a legal adult until you’re 18.

    Oh yeah, and that was a cute clip. Forget SCM, they should start their own site.

  • Emily

    “I like your tie.”

    I loved seeing them even hit on the principal, that was great. So in your face brazen of them.

    Awesome video.

  • Michael vdB

    LOL! Smart asses.

  • rcdc

    so, some people on this site tend to assume anyone with a different morality system from them is a fundie. it ain’t true. i’m kind of in the agnostic zone (can’t prove a negative), and i feel horribly uncomfortable with public displays of affection or sexuality from ANYONE. this isn’t because i agree with a judeo-christian ethos, it’s because i’m horribly shy and introverted and a very private person and believe strongly that i should not be subjected to other people’s sex, nor they mine. for example, i put music on in my dorm room so my neighbors don’t hear my master flogging me and really really wish mine would do me the same courtesy. in HS, i danced like that because it was the expected thing, but it made me really uncomfortable and i hated it. i wish my school had enforced its rules about that better. when the principal looked at the camera, to me (as a future teacher) it said “you see the kind of clowning and disrespect i get around here all f –ing day?” maybe you see Christianity because it’s what you want to blame for every problem.
    that, though clearly planned, was hilarious. took me back to my “nervous game” days…

    @John from England(used to be just John but there are other John’s):

    Couldn’t agree with you more. I started working on a poultry farm in Florida at the age of 12 while still going to school and was required to hand over my entire paycheck to my father every Friday night in return for room and board, and the clothing on my back. My father was from “the old country”, you see.

    I left home at the age of 14 (I had the wicked witch of the west for a stepmother) with a warning from my father, “Don’t you ever come back here and ask me for a nickel.”

    Truth be known, I would have died of starvation before I even thought to ask him for a nickel. My self pride would never have let me. Hell, by the age 16, I had my own pad, a car, had money in the bank and was my own man. And, if I had it to do over again, I’d have left at 12.

    I too, always thought the age of consent laws were totally ridiculous. By the age of 14, I knew who, what I was and what I wanted. The problem was, my age is what kept me from having it until I went to NYC when I as 15.

    At the age of 16, I had already been “married”for a year and we remained together until my 22nd birthday. The only reason it didn’t last, was because my husband was a macho whore who lied to me and to himself, but gave everyone else, what I should have been entitled to all along.

    I ahve never understood why we molly-coddle our children so in this country.

    More Christian bullshit, I suspect.

  • scott

    This was great. I love how clever they were. Scripted or not. Still great.

  • Mike

    Did anyone notice the porn music playing while they were demonstrating? lmao

  • Bitch Republic

    I’m not shy nor introverted, not a Christian, but tend towards atheism, but I too do not care to see too much public displays of affection or people practically having sex on the dance floor. Take it somewhere else. And I wouldn’t want my teenage daughter (if I had one) being felt up by a guy and dry humping him at a school dance, either.

  • Frunced


    How can you have respect for a principal who chose to appear on a crappy reality TV show?

  • Jaroslaw

    Frunced – you ask an interesting question – but is it at least possible the producers gave money for something the school needed? Not saying it is a good reason, but I’m guessing there are some details to this story missing.

    It may just be one big joke.

  • BombasticMo

    Was this whole thing staged? I’ve never heard of the show. Those kids were awesome, but it felt like they had to be acting out a script.

    It’s just too perfect.

  • Lex

    This was obviously staged, it’s also old.

    That aside why exactly are you praising these two teens and this stupid show for mocking homosexuality?

    Straight teens mocking gays is nothing new, they’re the same types who’ll hunt for gay guys and kick the shit out of the “fag” on campus.

    Praising them just because you find them attractive is pathetic at best. This isn’t positive.

  • Bitch, please!

    This particular episode is from a pretty old episode of the “The Principal’s Office”. It is a hell of a show on TruTv and they ought to promote it more. It beats many of the so called “reality shows”, hands down! This particular clip was also on “The Soup” on E!, hosted by Joel McHale. You guys should be watching “The Principal’s Office”–brings back many memories. You also get to see what today’s brats are doing to piss off the school authorities, lol.

  • drops

    hey guys u are so cool beleive me i am a biggest fan.Keep it up.
