Do you remember what it was like to have your mind blown by something you saw in a high school class? Jalen Brooks sure does—because the 17-year-old senior had a jaw-dropping experience in his zoology course just a week ago.

A herpetologist had come to Brooks' school in Riverside, Illinois, to show off some rare and unusual reptiles. Thankfully, his classmate Jill Lojas was sitting across the room during the presentation and took the chance to film his reactions. Never has someone been this enthralled by animals.

In no time at all, Brooks was a viral star—a meme in the making.

And the good news keeps coming: Brooks is now set to be a basketball star at college next year.

But other people have bigger ideas than continuing education and lasting viral fame. For example, what if Brooks got paired up with late-night TV's favorite animal expert for a nature documentary series?
