RACINE -- The principal at Racine Park High School has gone viral after posing with a couple of his students in matching jeans.

It all started when Principal Jeff Miller was greeting students last Friday. When he noticed two students who were wearing matching paint-speckled jeans, he started joking around and "gave them a bit of a hard time," he told Yahoo Style.

In an attempt to get him back, the students managed to convince another teacher to go out and purchase an identical pair of jeans for Principal Miller to wear.

"Being the good sport he is,Miller went along with it, changed into the jeans and wore them around school," the school district says. 

Photos of the matching jeans posted to Twitter have since been retweeted more than 28,000 times, and shared around the globe on sites like Reddit and BuzzFeed.

“It was amazing the amount of joy and laughter this brought,” Miller told Yahoo Style.
