A 19-year-old student is on his way to “Sesame Street.” News of his recent job acquisition came just a week after his viral rap video was released.


It seems Julien Turner who once rapped his Biology assignment can give us a few pointers on how to get to “Sesame Street.” He reportedly landed a job in the popular television show following the success of his video.


As part of an extra credit assignment for his Biology class, Turner submitted a rap video he called “XY Cell Life” to his teacher. In the clip, he spoofed Lil Uzi’s song “XO TourLlif3” and used it to impart a lesson on genetics defining terms like meiosis, mitosis, apoptosis, and others.

The video didn’t only impress his teacher but it also impressed over one million internet users who viewed it and contributed to its becoming viral. More doors opened for Turner and one particular door in a popular street caught his attention.


According to his tweet, he and his brother Justin landed a job in “Sesame Street”." They're poised to become the youngest filmmakers to be hired by the show to produce a film slated for release next year. Here is Turner’s statement on Twitter.

“Thankful to announce that my brother and I have become two of the youngest filmmakers to ever be commissioned to produce a Sesame Street film. It will be featured in the 2018-2019 season.”


Meanwhile, a college student also earned points from the advertising agency he applied for when he sent in a video in lieu of a cover letter for his application. In the three-minute music video, Chase Zreet rapped about his love for Sprite (the account he was eyeing) and his qualifications. To make it more interesting, he rapped everything while on a hoverboard. Naturally, his application stood out for its creativity and Zreet’s enthusiasm and he eventually got the job.


In contrast, a fourth-grade teacher in Skokie already had the job but he wanted to impress his students. So to welcome them on the first day of school, he created a rap video to introduce himself and orient his students about what to expect from his class. The teacher, Dwayne Reed became an internet sensation after and was even featured in "Good Morning America" for his ingenuity. We're certain his students were hyped up to attend his class after his unique welcome video.
