On May 16th, a group of celebrities gathered together to celebrate the graduating class of 2020.

‘Graduate Together’ was a virtual event that included celebrities, with the likes of Lebron James, Barack Obama, and TimothéeChalamet paying tribute to the 2020 graduates who will not get a real ceremony due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Timothée thanked his own teachers from high school, and mentioned his gratitude to ‘Miss Lawton’ for helping him with his ‘statistic’ which had fans in stitches due to a viral video of Timothée in his school days which refers to ‘Miss Lawton’.

So who is Miss Lawton, and why on earth is Timothée rapping about her? Find out here.

Who is Miss Lawton?

Timothée attended  Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts, where Miss Lawton was, as you can guess, his statistics teacher.

A few years ago, some fans dug up an old video of Timothée wearing a grey v-neck and a pink cap, rapping about statistics. The lyrics consist mostly of the words ‘statistics’ and ‘Miss Lawton’ and the video concludes with several other people dancing around Timothée as he raps.

As you can imagine, fans had struck gold with this video and it circulated the internet as people laughed at a baby- faced Timothée, rapping for his teacher about statistics, most likely for a school project.

So when Timothée thanked Miss Lawton, specifically for his education on statistics he himself could barely keep a straight face, and fans brought the video back up, finding it hilarious he acknowledged it at such a huge- scale event.

However, we can deduce that Miss Lawton didn’t enjoy the video as much as we did as Timothée revealed on the Graham Norton Show that Miss Lawton actually gave him a D grade for the video, though he said he deserved ‘that or worse’.

What are the lyrics to the Miss Lawton ‘Statistics’ song?

Here are the lyrics to Timothée’s song:

[Intro]

Boutta hit ’em with a Z-T-E-S-T

Let’s do a problem

Let us see the probability you’ll see me on tv

One-zero-zero-zero (1000) trillion percent

I’m a statistical wonder

A statistical gem

One in a zillion

‘Boutta net a million

Fruity colours on these numbers

Call it a chameleon

Prove everywhere that your boy is the best

Take a look at my face to a chi-square test
