As students quickly walk to their next class during passing periods, there is often a faint tune playing in the background that can be heard throughout the courtyard and many of the buildings on campus, and that tune is the Mii music, the song played in the Mii plaza on the Nintendo Wii.
Junior Jadareus Clerkley, the mastermind behind the music, admitted that he decided to play music during passing periods randomly and he had a few trials and errors before he settled for the Mii music. Once he decided to start playing the music, he began bringing a Sony XB40 Portable Bluetooth Speaker to ensure that it could be heard wherever he goes.
“I just kind of brought my speaker and I wanted to find a song that was equally annoying,” Clerkley said, “ and people loved it so it became the Wii music.”
The music is played without a schedule; it’s not played every passing period or even every day; it’s actually played depending on Clerkley’s mood.
“Usually I just play it during the day whenever I’m bored or whenever I’m not feeling good or having a bad day,” admits Clerkley, “I just play that and it brightens up my mood.”
Despite Clerkley’s good intent with the music, it could go against the school policies if it becomes a distraction to other students’ education.
“It hasn’t been reported,” substitute principal Richard Canales said. “As long as it’s not disrupting the school day I don’t see a problem with it. It would be great if we could set some guidelines with it to ensure it doesn’t get out of hand.”
