You just gotta do what you gotta do for extra credit—and if that means you go viral, then so be it.
Morehouse College sophomore Julien Turner learned this when he dropped a hilarious music video on Twitter after his Bio 101 professor told the class to create one for the chance to curve their grades.
“Professor: Make a music video over any subject we’ve covered and I’ll curve your overall grade,” he tweeted along with the video.
“I just kept hearing the ‘all my cells are dead’ verse in my head,” he explained, in regards to picking Lil Uzi Vert’s “XO Tour Llif3” to cover.
“My classmates have been lobbying for my grade since it’s blown up,” Turner said. “My professor said she heard about the video before she saw it when I turned it in. It’s hilarious.”
The post now has 60,000 retweets and has spawned some hilarious responses from people on Twitter.
Thankfully, the professor did grant him extra credit and his grade was curved, but that isn’t stopping him from working. “Now, I’m trying to see if I can get some more perks!” he said.
