Kid From Viral 'Is This Real Life' Dentist Video Reuses Line In Graduation Speech
The kid from the viral 'is this real life' dentist video reused his famous line during his graduation speech. Watch it here:
David DeVore shot to online fame when he was just seven, after a trip to the dentist left him feeling a little worse for wear.
Thankfully, his dad recorded his son's disorientated behaviour as he felt the full effects of the medication, with the youngster asking his old man: "Is this real life?"
Fast-forward to last year (which I appreciate is a bit of an oxymoron), and David was graduating from a small Lutheran school when he decided to deploy his much-loved line.
He said: "My dad once told me something God taught him at a specific time in his life - you can make a decision with fear, but not based on fear.
"You're allowed to be scared when you make a tough decision, but you cannot allow it to influence the decision you make."
He continued: "Do not be afraid to stumble, we all will because, as a popular YouTube video also questioned, this is real life."
Cue rapturous laughter from the attendees, all of whom presumably knew about the YouTube video he was referencing.
The original clip has been watched more than 139 million times over the past 11 years.

A description of the video reads: "He had just had a tooth removed due to hyperdontia or extra tooth. This was taken in the parking lot of the dentist office.
"He was so out of it. The staff was even laughing. This lasted for a few hours and he was fine. He even laughed at the video that night.
"He is very smart and always has something interesting to say about many different issues. His philosophical reaction to the medication didn't really surprise us."

Nowadays, all grown up, David is studying at the University Of Florida.
His dad told LADbible: "David is doing great even with the challenges of Covid resulting in him finishing his freshman year studying computer science at our kitchen table. He's back at school this fall but all online.
"He just turned 20 years old on 3 November and is so much more mature than I was at that age. He's very involved in leadership at a new church on campus and also other school activities. Just very busy as any young person in college usually is.
"We are very proud of our two boys [also referencing David's younger brother William]. They are the best kids we could have asked for."
