In May 2008, 7-year old David DeVore Jr. was taken to the dentist to have an extra tooth removed, due to a hereditary condition called hyperdontia. Because this was David’s first surgery and his mother could not be there, his father decided to video tape the experience to share with her and their family.
After the surgery, David was feeling confused from the anesthesia he was given. While in the car, he was asking his father questions like “Is this real life?” and “Is this going to be forever?” and also telling him that he had two fingers. At one point he even attempted to push himself up from his seat (while still buckled in) and began screaming before sinking back in exhaustion.
Seven months later, David’s father uploaded the David After Dentist video on Facebook. Being overwhelmed with people wanting to see the video, he decided to upload the David After Dentist video to YouTube, but did not notice there was a private option. Just 3 days after the upload, it had been seen over 3 million times.
As of December 5, 2014, David After Dentist had been viewed over 127 million times on YouTube.
