There is no shortage of viral videos on the internet that are here one day, and old news the next.

But every once in a while we get an update from an old favorite that we never expected.

And in the case of a video of a young boy, the ending is oh so sweet.

It all started when the boy's father recently shared a video of the boy that went viral two years ago in which he was so scared to jump off a diving board that he was shaking uncontrollably.


After a traumatizing moment like that, you could easily understand if little RJ never wanted to step foot on a diving board ever again.

But you'd be wrong.

RJ's dad posted a few new videos of his most recent diving adventures—and it's safe to say that he has totally conquered his fears.


Twitter was incredibly impressed with just how far RJ has come.

And RJ's dad even took the time to respond to some of the love.

And to people who praised how well everyone originally handled RJ's fears.

We can't wait to see what the future holds for this rising star.

It's a lot. Like a lot a lot. History class lied so hard.

Businesses have to turn a profit to be able to stay operational. We get it. A consumer is paying more than it costs to make the product to purchase the product. The upside of accepting this fact should be we're being provided a service and experience we couldn't possibly get on our own. However, there are those products that are overcharged, especially compared to the development costs, that are charged a high price for what feels like no reason outside of making a ridiculous amount of money.
