The video begins with young Davidson’s father, alligator wrestler Jason McDonald, bragging that the world was about to see the first tooth extraction via slingbow. A smiling Davidson then attached the bow’s string to the tooth in question and shot it out of her mouth. Davidson then raised her arms in victory. And McDonald was there to capture the whole thing in slow motion video.
“We were trying to think of a neat way to help her pull her last few remaining baby teeth,” McDonald said of the slingbow video. “Alexis is a special kid, she does a lot of crazy stuff with me, like walking the slack line over a pool of alligators. I never push her to do anything, but I do encourage her, any time you get the chance to be the first ever to do something, I think you should take that chance.”
Some people have accused McDonald and Davidson of faking this viral slingbow video. But McDonald insisted on Instagram that this is not the case.
“Lol got haters claiming this is fake,” he wrote. “Um do you think I glued that tooth to her gum? Lol some people will never be happy and that’s ok. She is super excited about all the positive comments she got and we gives no F#CK about the haters.”
Now the only question is what Alexis Davidson will do to remove her other baby teeth. After all, as McDonald wrote on Instagram, she still has a few left in her mouth. It will certainly be tough to beat this slingbow video!
