Sharing the video of his presentation on the micro-blogging site, he explained how the professor missed it. “She’s also the type of person who only watches tennis on TV so she had no clue what Black Panther was until we told her about the movie shortly afterwards,” he wrote in a reply to a comment.

Answering how he arrived at the point of giving a huge presentation on the King T’Challa, his arrival to the throne and his disappearance, he blamed the teacher’s keen “interest”. “I mentioned Wakanda the day before jokingly and she questioned it, so I offered to do a presentation about the country and their power struggle. She was incredibly excited to learn about a country she had never heard of so I gave this.”

Many users on the site raved about how “cool” the presentation was and some opined that the professor might have just “played along.” There were also a few who thought that his grades would go down but he stated the professor thought it was funny when he revealed the truth. “She asked me about it later and I just told her that the entire class was in on the joke and she thought it was funny.”
