Teacher not hot for Web video

A North Carolina teacher has become the unwilling star of a steamy Internet video shot at a fifth-grade graduation ceremony.

The 3 1/2-minute amateur video features close-ups of teacher Keri McIntyre's face and, ahem, backside set to the Van Halen classic "Hot for Teacher." "Good Morning America Weekend Edition" reported.

"When I saw it I was furious," McIntyre told the news program Sunday.

McIntyre found out about the video when a former student teacher called to say it was posted on YouTube. She then demanded the site pull the clip, but about 200,000 people had already viewed it, the network said.

After YouTube took the clip off its site, the video popped up on the social networking site MySpace.

The teacher is looking for the person responsible for the video, but all of the growing number of private citizens who are accidental Web stars have limited privacy rights when it comes to the Internet.
