When “David After Dentist” went viral back in 2009, it became an online rite of passage for everyday folks to post videos of their ridiculous post-dentist antics while high on anesthesia. But the ongoing internet trend has gotten the celebrity treatment with a recent Instagram post from Jennifer Garner.
The video shows the actress in the middle of a heartfelt phone call, gushing about Hamilton.
“They did the sad part of Hamilton and I started crying and I couldn’t stop,” she tells a friend on the other end of the phone. The story is hard to follow but she then recounts someone asking if she was OK: “And I said, ‘It’s so beautiful. It’s so beautiful, listen to this song.’ It was so beautiful, the music was so pretty.”
The absurdity of the situation is played up by Garner’s Instagram caption: “Throwback Thursday– that time I had dental anesthesia…laughing gas + novocaine + Hamilton = you’re welcome.”
Miranda lovingly shared the video, saying Garner had shared it with him last year and he couldn’t believe she posted it online. He added, appropriately, “Jennifer Garner rules.”
Watch it here:
She emailed me this last year, I can’t BELIEVE she posted it!
