Fifth graders' synchronized 'swim' surprise

WATCH: Fifth Graders' Synchronized Surprise

Some fifth grade boys in Hurst, Texas had a synchronized surprise for everyone at their elementary school's talent show.

The boys' routine at W. A. Porter Elementary School April 11 went swimmingly, and the "Good Morning America" anchors were amazed.

'Oh my gosh, this is amazing. These are fifth graders? These are fifth graders, ten and 11-year-olds.'

KDFW sat down with some of the boys and they spilled what was most difficult about the routine.

'Meet Grayson, Mason, Jack, Trent, Matthew and Drew. Each boy had his own challenge. 'It was when we dove and we crossed each other.,' one said. 'For me, it was putting my feet up because I don't have really great balance.'

The video has since created a splash on social media.

One user commented, 'This is one of the most hilarious videos that I have watched in a long time! Talented and funny kids!'

Another said, 'I had to watch this again, because ... I still haven't stopped laughing after the first 100 or so times. Great job guys!'

Why can't AOL just run the video . . . . without the sassy commentary. . . .

That was one hilarious way to show how ridiculous synchronized swimming is. Thanks, kids.

It is too bad actual synchronized swimming is made fun of so much because it does take a lot of strength, grace, and athleticism. I have to admit it does beg for it sometimes though.

Good job boys, don't listen to the ignorant people trying to make themselves look smart.

Retired 18 years ago from teaching elementary grades. Glad to see that kids are still being encouraged to do neat stuff. If you think these boys are being effeminate, then you have to realize that they are just old enough to appreciate the pun on what female swimmers are known to do. Never underestimate kids!

With Teachers like you, it is not hard to understand why America has fallen to 35th in the world in academics (per United Nations data).

Neat stuff? Let us all know if you come across a successful MALE leader in government or business who lists "synchronized swimmer champion" on their CV. Oh yes, hold your breath until you find the answer.

The senior men at our "over 55" park did this at our talent show many years ago, it's too funny. Good job to the boys
