“Yeah, this is real life ,” his dad replied. “ David After Dentist ” is what we now call a viral video. David’s father uploaded it to YouTube on a whim one Friday afternoon in 2009, seven months after the video was taken. Before the recession, he’d worked in real estate, but now he was a stay-at-home dad.
David DeVore was 7 years old at the time of the video in 2009. Now 18, he’s been admitted to University of Florida’s Innovation Academy.
David Devore—whose laughing gas YouTube video went viral—earned his family $150,000 from his fleeting internet fame.
On Friday night, he received his acceptance to the University of Florida’s class of 2023. “Yes, this is real life!” David’s dad, also named David Devore, wrote on the ” David After Dentist ” Instagram account. ” David found out he is officially a Gator today! So proud of him.”
