A video project created by a Morehouse College student got him more than extra credit in his biology class — it ended up taking over the internet.

Julien Turner, a sophomore at the historically Black college, created his own rendition of Lil Uzi Vert’s “XO TourLlif3” in which he changed the lyrics to make them about cell division, Mashable reported. He filmed the video after his professor told students that they could have their grades curved if they turned in a video about mitosis and meiosis.

“I just kept hearing the ‘all my cells are dead’ verse in my head,” he told Mashable. After creating the video, he shared it on Twitter and it ended up going viral with over 100,000 retweets and nearly 250,000 likes. Turner says his professor came across the video online before he turned it in and needless to say he did receive the extra credit.

Turner calls himself a filmmaker on his Twitter bio, so creating this project was right up his alley.

Watch Turner’s hilarious video in full below.
