Students in Milwaukee, Wisconsin are frustrated with the lack of air conditioning at their 50-year-old school.

They created a parody video of the "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" theme song to raise funds for a new air conditioning system at Sherman Park Lutheran School. Teachers also have helped with the video.

"Anything to get attention," teacher Chris Couillard told WISN in Milwaukee. "That's what sometimes is hard to do. There are people out there that want to help."

The students' dream is for Ellen DeGeneres to notice the video but would accept help from anyone willing. The price tag to add central air conditioning to the school could reach $100,000, WISN reported.

The school is in summer break but students will be returning mid-August.
