(NECN) -  The viral video "What Does the Spleen Do" is an internet sensation.
The parody of "What Does the Fox Say" is the creation of a group of Harvard medical students to promote science education.

Alex Power-Hays, one of the students behind the video, joined us with more.

She said the student behind the video got together to have some fun and didn’t expect it to go viral.

The spleen is important for filtering blood.

She said the video is part of the HMS/MSDM Organ Challenge, which is a challenge for student in any grade to submit an educational video about an organ, preferably in the form of a music video.
