A group of students from UCSF perform a synchronized swimming routine demonstrating cell division (mitosis). A cute/informative video for introducing cell division or just to get students' attention.

That's great! Synchronized swimmers demonstrating mitosis is a rather amusing thought and would be great to capture the kids' attention.

An entertaining visual for students. Would definately get their attention, although some of the video could be difficult to make out and would need to be narrated by the teacher.

I love things like this. They add a liitle humor into the lesson. Some times students can get a little bored and things like this get their attention. Great for a set induction.
