Joseph Gordon-Levitt Recreates David After Dentist

For our annual After the Oscars special, we took famous YouTube videos and made big-budget Hollywood films out of them. One of them was “David After Dentist,” starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as David. Most actors would have shown up, buzzed through the lines and be done with it. But Joseph memorized the entire David After Dentist video – for no reason. We didn’t ask him to and most of it wasn’t in the script. This was shot without any assistance from cue cards, he wasn’t watching along with the video to get the timing right, and somehow he managed to duplicate the video of this kid coming home from the dentist perfectly.

    I find it so funny that this boy had to put up with strong anesthetics to remove a simple tooth. It barely hurts! Is this common everywhere and I don't know about it?

    Why is the movie parody missing and private? I want to see evil Samuel L. Jackson dentist again.

    You guys no one's being serious about it being "superb acting" or whatever. It's just fucking adorable and amusing, that's all! Leave your "critiques" elsewhere and have a giggle or two 😛

    Now there’s the brilliant Joseph Gordon-Levitt! The little boy is so adorable! I bet he really had a good laugh when he saw the video after the medication wore off.
