While we grew up, as children, we were taught a life lesson of ‘slow and steady wins the race’ using the popular rabbit and turtle story. Who can forget this very popular story told to us often by our teachers and parents?

The story begins with a rabbit boasting about how fast he could run. He laughed at the turtle for being slow and the two agreed for a race challenge. As the race began, the rabbit ran fast away ahead of the turtle. Half-way, not seeing the turtle anywhere, he decided to stop and take a short nap. All this time, the turtle kept walking step by step and finished the race.

The rabbit woke up and tried to reach the finish line only to find the turtle already there waiting for him. The moral of the story is ‘slow and steady wins the race’ and ‘never ever underestimate even your weakest opponent.’

Meanwhile, the popular childhood narrative has come true even in real life after a race was conducted between a turtle and a rabbit. As expected, the rabbit ran first, but started to play around half-way while the turtle remained undistracted and reached the finishing line.

The viral video was created by a few students in China. It has since gone viral on all social media platforms. Sharing the video, popular memes page RVCJ Media wrote, “Turtle Rocked, People Again Shocked 😂”

The viral video has received hilarious response from social media users who could not stop ROFL.
