Brexley won a check for $529, an amount that will reportedly be put into her NC 529 Account, which is a college savings plan.
Baby videos are the cutest things that most people enjoy on the internet. And this baby race, known as "Diapers to Dorms Dash," is the most adorable and hilarious video one needs to watch. During halftime of a basketball game between the University of North Carolina and Duke University at Chapel Hill on March 4, five babies set out to crawl their way to victory. However, it did not exactly go the way it was planned, reports Good Morning America.
As soon as the race started, a baby girl called Lyla went racing ahead of the other babies and stopped inches before the finish line. Although her parent kept trying to encourage her to touch the finish line—even the commentator kept saying, "Lyla, touch it!"—the baby refused to move those last couple of inches.
Meanwhile, another baby named Emmit came crawling behind Lyla and also stopped near the finish line. A third baby named Brexley made slow progress across the court and even stopped in the middle for some time. However, against all odds, she managed to complete the race first by crawling across the finish line into her mother's arms. The last few seconds of the race were as chaotic as they come with the young ones going back and forth and getting distracted by everything happening around them.
Brexley won a check for $529, an amount that would reportedly be put into her NC 529 Account, which is a college savings plan.
The video of the baby race was uploaded on YouTube and has gained more than 4,900 views. People absolutely loved the race and the kids' reactions. @SPChannel722 commented, "This was the absolute funniest thing ever." @felixgonzales3613 expressed, "Of course, baby stops right before the finish line. Lol!!!" @ridindirty reacted, "Lol that's hilarious!!!" @Nkohmedia commented, "Who else has watched this video many times?"
Moreover, the video went viral on TikTok with more than 12.3 million views and is captioned, "Hands down the most intense event I've ever had to do play-by-play for! I got on my knees and BEGGED LYLA!" It was posted by Lyla's parent @tiktokbdaht.
Many on the platform found the race hilarious. @iammissdeb commented, "The way I was invested in that baby race. Lyla you gotta crawl all the way home sweetheart!" @runningwe_79 wrote, "This was the best baby race I have ever seen! I was really on edge!" @user1684563362557 pointed out, "This was absolutely hilarious, especially when they started going in the other direction."
Meanwhile, the commentator provided hilarious commentary on the child's antics by saying: "Well he's too young to be on drugs but something's wrong with this kid. We haven't figured it out yet Peter. Rounding 3rd meanwhile the 3rd base coach is on his f***g cell phone. This game has been a disaster. The score is 27-3 and none of these kids can play a lick of baseball, the ball is shooting infield right now. It's been touched by every single player."
Although a coach tries to instruct the little boy, the young player pays no heed and continues to perform his slow-motion show. As he reaches the other side of the pitch, the commentator says, "No threat of being thrown out at home. But he's safe now."
