Yesterday, many Avon students opened their Instagram feeds only to find two familiar faces on @HouseofHighlights, an account with over 11 million followers. The account is followed by Avon students and celebrities alike, including Justin Timberlake and Kevin Hart.

Senior Joey Bandy was filmed taunting band director Mr. Jay Webb over an IU basketball win, and sent the video in to the account, where it currently stands at 1.5 million views and 3,400 comments. On the twitter account, @BleacherReport, the video has almost 8000 retweets and 40,000 likes.

“Mr. Webb is a huge Butler fan and Butler and IU played last Saturday. IU made a last second [three-pointer] to win the game, so Mr. Harloff gave me his speaker and we played the play by play from the last second shot for [Mr. Webb],” explained Bandy. “Mr. Webb thought it was funny and wild that we got over one million views.”
