Dentist Chair Hoonage – Click above to watch video after the jump

Anesthetics are a wonderful thing. Aside from protecting our fragile psyches from the horrors of witnessing a trained professional go all choppin'-broccoli on our insides, they also allow for a certain level of hilarity that's difficult to emulate without the assistance of modern chemistry. Need proof? Look no further than the video after the jump. In it, reader Matt is knocked out cold in preparation for the removal of his wisdom teeth. With his body trapped in an oral surgeon's chair, Matt's mind apparently retreated to the safety of somewhere a little more comforting – somewhere like the driver's seat of his favorite sports car.

While Matt says he has no recollection of the entire surgery, office staff and family members say that he was slamming gears the entire time he was out. We do have to commend him on a well-executed heel-toe downshift, but it looks like that missed shift from third to fourth likely cost him the championship. There's always next year, man. Hit the jump to check out the clip for yourself. Thanks for the good sense of humor and the tip, Matt!

      I have those same shoes! They are cheap comfy, and have great pedal feel. Respect for the sounds, and the footwear.

        • 4 Years Ago
        The downshifting was great.
        • 4 Years Ago
        hahaha the down shifts were with out a doubt the best. haha overall it was soo realistic, even the way the higher gears held longer than the lower ones

        "While Matt says he has no recollection of the entire surgery, office staff and family members say that he was slamming gears the entire time he was out..."

        No wonder you've been shifting gears, Matt..you're on "Nitrous oxide".

        Btw, the nasal respirator looks like a huge wishbone on your nose... XD

        Could have been worse. He could have thought he was watching pornography. O.o

        Thanks everyone! I honestly remember nothing between the drive there and being in my bed at home. Then they told me the story and I didn't believe them. Oh how naive I was.

      I was told I "drove" home after my wisdom teeth extraction, while sitting in the passenger seat of my mother's Odyssey. Shifting, steering, and all. If only my mother had remembered the camera!

      Too funny. I think I could hear a sweet Borla muffler. Nice pedal work.

      "...it's called Inception..."
      • 4 Years Ago
      This guys fake simulation drugged up sounded more realistic than Gran Turismo.
        • 4 Years Ago
        meh,the bigger the franchise the more haters...lots of ms shareholders,in a us website,cause their shares are 20$ that try to promote imitation franchises here.
        at least gt5 doesn't have kiddie gfx like nfs and forza.
        and already sold more than forza3.

        you must be a 13 year old troll, to use this video to take a shot at a video game on a auto website. Grow up numb-nuts

        guess there are alot of 13 year old's here
        • 4 Years Ago
        Oh Axlewood get over it. My 14 yr old can't stand that GT5's cars all sound like vacuum cleaners once you tune them up. And I didn't even have to point it out to him. It does suck. The original Need for Speed (what, 20 years ago?) sounded better.

        @ Jason...lmao...good one. To the point!!
      • 4 Years Ago
      What ever it was, it had 8 gears. lol
        • 4 Years Ago
        must be a benz from the future!
