Watch This Girl Wake Up From Wisdom Teeth Surgery Convinced Her Tongue Fell Out
It’s hard not to love all those wisdom teeth removal videos on the internet, but 16-year-old Maria Pascarella’s is our new favorite.
Maria’s mom Marianna posted a video on YouTube of her daughter right after her surgery. In a little over a month, it has been viewed more than 400,000 times.
Throughout the two-minute video, Maria’s post-surgery concerns range from believing her tongue has fallen out, to thinking the doctors removed her cheek to being convinced that she is turning into an electric blanket. She also sings a pretty interesting version of “The Electric Slide.”
It’s hard to pick a favorite part of this video that literally has us laughing out loud, but the arguments with her mother are priceless. A dramatic eye roll and “Like, I obviously know my cheek’s not there, Mom,”—it just doesn’t get much funnier than that.
“She was sassy even under anesthesia,” Marianna told Newsday after the clip went viral. “That was my favorite part, the eye roll.”
Maria’s been a pretty good sport about the whole thing, even posting the video to her own Twitter account.
“It’s in Maria’s personality to want to make people laugh, to make people happy,” Marianna said. “She just said to me, ‘If it makes people smile, then why not put it out there?’”
She’s surely made plenty of people smile, judging by the more than 150 comments on the video.
If you’re looking for more hilarity, wisdom teeth videos are so popular that there is even a Facebook page dedicated to them. “Wisdom Teeth Videos” posts—you guessed it—videos of people after they’ve had their wisdom teeth removed. The page has nearly 300,000 likes.
There are also compilation videos posted to YouTube, with wisdom teeth removal reactions from Vine, Twitter and Instagram.
