Dad uses rocket to pull son s tooth
Dad uses rocket to pull son's tooth

Some people obviously have too much time on their hands.

A father in the US took a simple case of a loose tooth and turned it into a YouTube sensation.

Bradley Harris posted video footage of his son on YouTube with this message: "My son wanted to pull out his tooth his way."

That was more than a year ago, and now the footage has become a hit thanks to recent media coverage.

So why have more than 442,500 people viewed Mr Harris footage? Because the video features his son Jimmy using a rocket to pull out his loose tooth.

That's right, a rocket.

The video begins by showing the model rocket attached to lots of string, which is tied to Jimmy's tooth.

"I'm just getting my tooth out," Jimmy tells his father.

"You're gonna fire a rocket?" his father replies.

After a quick lesson from his father on how to fire a rocket, Jimmy presses a couple of buttons and the rocket takes off - with the tooth.

The rocket launch makes a loud swooshing noise, to which Mr Harris other child says: "Don't do that, Daddy ... my ears!"

Clearly impressed and amused, Mr Harris congratulates his son on a job well done.

"OK, you're bleeding," he tells Jimmy, laughing.

"The tooth fairy's gonna give you money because that was the coolest tooth pulling out I've ever seen."
