Sure, we know that the lungs help you breathe, the heart pumps the blood throughout the body and the mast cells generate histamine for inflammatory response, but the spleen’s function isn’t that really well known compared to its anatomical neighbors.
Just until we’ve started the long lectures on Anatomy and Physiology that we’ve really learned the functions of the spleen. And a group of Harvard Medical School students took YouTube to teach the rest of the Internet on the functions of the human spleen with a hilarious music video parody of the viral hit “The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?”
The music video, complete with a dancing spleen, was created for the 107th Annual Second Year Show by the Harvard Medical School and Harvard School of Dental Medicine class of 2016. Lyrics detailing the job of the human spleen were written by Will Lewis, Lydia Flier, Eddie Grom and Ariana Metchik-Gaddis.
