It's not every day that a school assignment goes viral.
But that's exactly what happened to Glenna Matauto, a junior at Kaimuki High School.
The instructions for her broadcast media class: Re-create a scene from your favorite movie.
The 17-year-old chose one of her favorite scenes from "Mulan." And she enlisted her friends to help.
The results are hilarious — and impressive.
three days, five broken sticks, a shoe and volleyball stuck in a tree, and 2883827274832 hours of bloopers ALL for a 38 second video ???????? — Micronesian Mulan ?????? pic.twitter.com/bglMtKENXD— skee ?? (@senseileskee) March 3, 2018
And so is the view count on her Twitter post with the final product: More than 8 million in counting.
Twitter users can't seem to get enough — and they're making their own requests.
The Hawaii teens even got some attention from Buzzfeed.
And what grade did Matauto actually get on the assignment? She hasn't gotten it yet.
