Remember when your parents used to tell you that if you made a face it would stay like that forever?

Nobody told Tom Thibodeau. 

The former Timberwolves head coach and president of basketball operations debuted on ESPN as an NBA analyst on Wednesday, and he left viewers in awe with a smile for the ages. Like, actual ages. 

This is a guy that rarely smiled in front of the media or during games while coaching the Wolves. It's almost like he's in a trance and can't help it, or maybe he's doing the Mannequin Challenge by himself. 

Whatever is, it's amazing and will now live forever on the internet.
