A pre-med student made people laugh with his funny attempt to get out of his midterm exam.

Terrell Finner became an Internet sensation over his hilariously bad attempt to avoid his midterm exam.

Finner, who is a pre-med student at Columbia University in New York, published a photo of himself with a pair of headphones stuck in his nose and a MacBook charger through his arm, making it appear as if he was connected to tubes in the hospital.

He also had photos that show him wearing a makeshift hospital bracelet with his own writing on it while he was wrapped in white linen sheets as a hospital gown.

He posted the photos to Twitter and wrote: “I’m emailing these photos to my chemistry professor. I had a nosebleed and had to be hospitalized, and can’t take the midterm on Wednesday.”

The photos quickly went viral. Six days later, he posted another photo of himself with the headphones in his nose saying: “Got discharged from the hospital. Gotta have oxygen though.”
