Video of Jacksonville students celebrating free time gets recognized by Ted Lasso, RGIII

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Nothing excites students -- and let’s face it, adults -- more than free time!

That joy is evident in a video of Biscayne Elementary Students that’s going viral.


Twitter user @therealziggyb23 posted video that second-grade teacher Mr. Dwayne Taylor shared with the parents of the students in his class.

“Harlie, it’s up to you,” Taylor can be heard saying in the video. ”All right parents, we made a bet. If Harlie gets this right, then we can have free time. If she don’t, then we still workin’. Harlie, what answer did you write down?”

“Seven,” she answers.

The classroom erupts into pure joy, jumping and cheering. Some kids can be seen in the background crying and hugging.

“Now mind you, parents, these are tears of joy,” Taylor said in the video.

The video was originally posted on March 16 and since then, it’s been reshared by Barstool Sports.

It’s gotten reaction from Heisman Trophy winner and NFL Pro Bowler Robert Griffin III:

And the official “Ted Lasso” account said “this might be the best clutch performance I’ve ever seen.”
