Boy pulls own tooth by tying it to the round in a nerf gun, yanking trigger

In this video, an enterprising young fellow ties his loose tooth to the projectile in his Nerf Big Bow and fires the weapon, taking his tooth out in one glorious, nearly painless instant.

  1. This kid deserves a medal for badass of the year.  I just hope my future offspring display such devil-may-care-ery.  His parents need to let him do whatever the fuck he wants for a week.  Somebody get this kid the Nerf guns… get him ALL the Nerf guns.

  2. “Will this hurt?”

    “I don’t know. . .  you’ll have to tell me after.”

    Ladies and gentleman, I present to you. . .  Father of the Year!

  3. That must have been one loose tooth, that or I have very strong teeth.

    -I tried something similar involving a door and needless to say the string broke way before the tooth came out.

  4.  pretty sure i saw this on a tex avery sketch.  good thing that was a deciduous tooth.   looney teens etc has done much more harm to our youth than violent video games

      1. Yup. Like the fact that if you run off of a building roof, cliff, or other elevated surface, you have one to two seconds to run back onto the elevated surface before dropping the long way down and creating a small mushroom cloud.

        But you gotta think quick, and avoid churning in empty space. It rarely helps, and it wastes those one to two seconds.

  5. Hahaha! It must have been ready to pop out. I remember prying mine out. They’re annoying when they’re loose. 

  6. This is old news, did this myself in the 80s…

    Lots of Roadrunner cartoons combined with loose teeth and spring-loaded toys pretty much guarantees this outcome, I think.

  7. Well, that’s kinda cool, but I would be more impressed if it WASN’T an already loose baby tooth, but a full grown adult tooth.

  8. No blood? Yeah, that tooth must’ve been really loose or just placed in his mouth after having already been pulled. I vote the latter. Still fun though I cringe to think about others trying to “more power”, one up this.

    1. Definitely bad ass as hell… but how are you supposed to con a quarter out of your folks if you send your tooth into the stratosphere?

  9. I’m waiting for the tonsil episode. 

    What a cool dad, makes me pissed at mine for chasing me through the house and dragging me feet first out of the  crawl space under the house.  It fell out sometime between escape and capture. 

  10. “Your tooth, indeed! What’s the matter with your tooth?”

    “One of them’s loose, and it aches perfectly awful.”

    “There, there, now, don’t begin that groaning again. Open your mouth. Well—your tooth is loose, but you’re not going to die about that. Mary, get me a silk thread, and a chunk of fire out of the kitchen.”

    Tom said: “Oh, please, auntie, don’t pull it out. It don’t hurt any more. I wish I may never stir if it does. Please don’t, auntie. I don’t want to stay home from school.”

    “Oh, you don’t, don’t you? So all this row was because you thought you’d get to stay home from school and go a fishing? Tom, Tom, I love you so, and you seem to try every way you can to break my old heart with your outrageousness.”

    By this time the dental instruments were ready. The old lady made one end of the silk thread fast to Tom’s tooth with a loop and tied the other to the bedpost. Then she seized the chunk of fire and suddenly thrust it almost into the boy’s face. The tooth hung dangling by the bedpost, now.
