A US father decided to pull out one of his son’s front teeth by using his car.

The video has been met with mixed feelings, after it appeared on the website Live Leak this week and went viral.

While many viewers applauded the approach , others thought it cruel and unnecessary.

Daily Mail shares a video shows a boy standing on a drive at the end of a cul-de-sac. His tooth has been attached by string to the back of his father’s Audi S5.

The man rolls down the window and starts to countdown as the engine revs.

The boy’s mother is then heard telling him to ‘open your mouth’.

The father then takes off down the street, and the boy can be heard letting out a yelp. He then screams out ‘my toothy’ as he runs out onto the street looking for the tooth that has just been ripped out of his mouth by a car.

As the mother, who is filming, approaches him with the camera, the young boy opens his mouth to show that the tooth was removed, revealing both his two front teeth are missing.

Many viewers expressed outrage at what appears to be a frightening exercise to put a young child through.

I was holding my breath the whole time I must admit!

Watch for yourself below.

Earlier this year a dad used a helicopter to help pull his sons tooth.  YES, a helicopter!

He tied a loooooong piece of string onto the boys tooth and lifted the helicopter into the air while the young boy stood on the ground.  Extreme?  We think so!

  • Um. I can see how you’d joke about this, but actually DOING it? Not great.

  • A wobbly tooth should come out by itself when the time is there, it shouldn’t need force.
    When my kids have a very wobbly tooth so that it annoys i suggest they can pull it out themselves.

  • I would have never done such a thing. I’m glad they didn’t damage the boy’s mouth.

  • Seems a bit extreme, certainly goes above and beyond the door and string idea that was always suggested as a child.

  • My son has his first wobbly tooth, it brings back memories of being told to tie string from it to a door and slam the door etc…my parents never did anything like it and it certainly isnt something I would even consider.
    Its one of those things where a ‘funny’ idea has the possibilty to go horrendously wrong.

  • This is ridiculous. There’s a reason why we have dentists.

  • They obviously didn’t think about the fact that they could have damaged the permanent tooth that is growing to replace the old one.

  • This was of course done in jest. But totally ridiculous all the same.
