Boy Gets Loose Tooth Pulled Out By A Camaro, Makes Everyone Everywhere Flinch In Sympathy — VIDEO

There are a lot of ways to remove a loose tooth — but I'm willing to be that most of us never thought about doing it this way before: One dedicated father recently helped his eight-year-old son pull out his loose tooth with a car. But not just any car; no, this one was a fire-engine red Chevy Camaro. And hey, guess what? He captured it all on video, too. Wasn't that nice of him? Come, friends. Let us gather around the warm glow of the computer and gasp in horror at this grisly moment together. For what else is the Internet for but to shock and amaze?

YouTuber Rob Venomous — who, judging from his license plate, lives in Florida — posted the video on March 28. Its title is simple (“Tooth pulling via #camaro”), as is its description (“My eight-year-old getting his tooth pulled by a Camaro”); it's also short, running a mere 27 seconds in length. Yet for some reason, we — the collective “we” that is the Internet, I mean — simply cannot get enough of it. Why? Is the creativity of the act? The fact that it comes across as sheer overkill? We may never know. But one thing's for sure: It's certainly memorable. So memorable, in fact, that I felt compelled to capture the precise moment the tooth pops out in glorious GIF form, just so you can watch it over… and over… and over again. Are you ready for this?

It's kind of freaky. Just warning you.

Are you suuuuuuuuuure?

OK. Here it is:

It's been decades since I've lost a tooth, but my mouth is still aching in sympathy. If you want to watch the whole thing—complete with a close-up of the kid's bloody mouth afterward — here you go:

Shudder.

But just as there's more than one way to skin a cat, there's more than one way to pull out a loose tooth. They might be slightly less terrifying, too, even though they might not have the same horsepower behind them. I still can't say I'd recommend anything other than, y'know, waiting for it to fall out on its own… but there's also these, right?

1. The Old String-to-Doorknob Trick

You know this one: Tie a string to your tooth; then tie the other end to a doorknob; then slam the door. Note, though, that I do not know anyone for whom this method has worked. It could all end in tears.

2. Rube Goldberg Machine

I'm sure there's a market for a Tooth-Pulling Machine, right?

3. Eat Something Sticky

Chowing down on a caramel will yank it right out.

4. Use an RC Car

Points for creativity.

5. Wiggle It Til It Comes Out

You can't wrong with this one, right?
