Raise your hand if you’ve ever lied to the dentist about how often you floss. Don’t worry, you’re amongst friends. Oh, all of you? Yeah sounds about right.
That’s not to say that no one cares about their oral health, it’s just that many of us consider flossing pretty annoying. But you know what’s more annoying? Being shamed with the old “I’m not mad, I’m just disappointed” look every six months by your dentist. So we have to do it. Doesn’t mean we can’t try and get creative with it.
George Resch is a Long Island dad who’s known for his comedic videos and popular meme account, Tank Sinatra. Being a member of the Flossing Haters Gang, he decided to review and alternative: the waterpik.
“So we all know that it’s important to floss, but I don’t like flossing, so I was recommended to get a waterpik, and I’m gonna try it out for you guys right now,” Resch starts out the video.
He fills up the base with water, before going to town on his teeth in what is probably not the recommended usage. There’s a lot of yelling involved.
The way you actually use a waterpik involves having your mouth closed, leaning over a sink, and aiming it inside your mouth at a 90 degree angle. But that’s not very funny (although, the water does have to dribble out of your mouth so, maybe a little.)
Anything for those pearly whites, though!
