This Teen Became A Meme After His Pure Reaction To Rare Animals In Class Went Viral
"Thank God we will end this terrible year with something so simple yet so wholesome."
Meet Jalen Brooks, a 17-year-old high school senior from Riverside, Illinois.
Jalen was in his zoology class when his classmate Jill Lojas started filming his facial reactions to the animals on show.
But Jalen said he completely lost it when the python came out.
"He [started] out with a small rooster that [was] used in cockfights, so I didn't think much of it," Jalen told BuzzFeed News.
"It began when he pulled out the biggest duck species there is! I was super intrigued.
"After that he pulled out a series of crazy reptiles that were honestly dinosaurs in my opinion. Then he pulled out the largest python I've ever seen and I lost it."
He said since the video went viral with over 130,000 retweets, people have assumed he's never been to a zoo. However, Jalen said his school is right next to a zoo, and he's been around animals his whole life.
