Hey @jtimberlake! We know you’re busy on your European tour, but how about a quick shout-out to the Middies in Middletown, OH 🇺🇸 We’d love for you to help us #CatchTheFeeling for the 2018-19 school year! #MiddiesRising #MOTWTOUR https://t.co/ox0HX5Uray— Middletown Schools (@MiddletownOH) August 20, 2018
Staffers at one Middletown elementary school even created a lip sync video to the song.
So any chance the celebrity will be visiting the Middies? We’re all keeping our fingers crossed.
