Remember when your parents used to tell you that “slow and steady wins the race,” and your teachers read you “The Tortoise and the Hare” to prove that confidence means nothing when you don’t have anything to back it up? Remember how, even at an early age, you kind of assumed all that was bullshit and were certain that, if given the opportunity to witness a tortoise/hare race in real life, the hare would be the smart bet?

Well, it turns out we were all wrong. According to the below video, which was posted yesterday and has already amassed over seven million views — many, we’re sure, from kids who are sending it to their parents and apologizing for not believing them in the first place.
