Imagine for a moment that you are a schoolteacher and Kirin J Callinan is one of your students. Ok now imagine Connan Mockasin as his classmate. Thoughts of an early retirement would no doubt be flooding your mind.

The video to Kirin’s “The Teacher”, the latest single from his forthcoming second album, has Callinan and his friend collaborator and sometime tour partner Mockasin, cheekily mocking some poor teacher.

Like a cross between Summer Bay High and a Kenny G piece, the video has Mockasin playing some smooth sax while a school-uniformed Callinan taunts, “Out of bounds, Behind the cricket nets, You caught me with my pants down, And you found My cigarettes.”

Callinan and Mockasin to the principal’s office now!

Callinan’s second album will be available in 2016.
