Post-Anesthesia Videos are amateur footage of people acting intoxicated or rambling incoherently while recovering from the effects of anesthesia after surgery.

In May 2008, David DeVore took his seven-year-old son David DeVore Jr. to a dental surgeon to take care of an extraneous tooth that was caused by hyperdontia. After the surgery was completed, DeVore filmed David’s reaction, in which he asked various questions including “is this real life?” “why is this happening to me?” and “is this going to be forever?” After sharing the video with his family and friends on Facebook, DeVore uploaded it to YouTube with the title "David After Dentist" on January 30th, 2009 (shown below).
