The appropriately-named “Chaddy” was quite chatty in the aftermath of the teen’s wisdom teeth removal surgery. The hilarious video deserves to go in the hall of fame with all of the other videos featuring people coming out of anesthesia.
Chaddy’s loopy ramblings gives David from the well-known “David after the dentist” video a run for his money. I’m sure a couple of his comments are destined to become internet one-liners and here are a few of my favorite moments:
While watching a soccer game between Russia and Czechoslovakia, he suspiciously addressed the country of Russia and said, “They’re bad people aren’t they?” In a transition I don’t entirely understand, his face suddenly lights up and he excitedly demands, “Do they wear the tall hats??”
Upon answering a phone call from his father, he blurted out with the exuberance of Buddy the Elf, “Hi Dad! I love you!”
It was only seconds later that he became overwhelmed and tearfully explained to his father, “I’m just crying and watching soccer…”
The conversation continued and I can only imagine his father’s response as Chaddy told him “Don’t spend lots of money because we need to save our money for the, like, Great Depression.”
Actually, I don’t need to imagine. Instantly afterward, he indignantly asked his father, “Why are you laughing at me?!”
I can’t tell which is funnier, his commentary or his swift change in emotions. In one moment, he’s giddy and giggly and enthusiastically asking his mother, “Hey, remember that guy we saw in the toy store??” In the next few minutes, he’s visibly upset because he’s deeply moved by how hard his Dad worked at building the fire pit.
I remember when I had my wisdom teeth out. I caused a ruckus at Hillcrest Hospital when I came out of anesthesia singing at the top of my lungs. My mood changed significantly when my mother tried to put my shoes back on. This offended me to such an extent that she put them in her purse and we didn’t speak of it again.
On our way out I saluted everyone enthusiastically and was overjoyed at the sight of my mother’s white Acura. “Thar she blows!” I cheered happily, like a strange peppy Captain Ahab. Before the drugs wore off, I explained to my best friend and temporary babysitter how I wanted to go exploring and intended to go West. Why? “Manifest destiny,” I answered with a tone that implied that this should have been obvious.
Thankfully, I wasn’t filmed.
