David DeVore - David After Dentist
Welcome to Episode #6 . I’m sure many of you remember the viral video "David After Dentist". It’s a video of young David DeVore still affected by the anesthesia after a visit to the dentist where is is contemplating "is this real life" and many other funny moments. Because this was David's first surgery and his mother could not be there, so his father decided to record the experience to share with her and their family. Seven months later, David's father uploaded the video on Facebook. After being overwhelmed with people wanting to see the video, he decided to upload it to YouTube, but did not notice there was a private option. Just 3 days after the upload, it had been seen over 3 million times. The video was uploaded on Jan 30 2009 and has received over 138 million views world wide!

Marvin Pearson - Blind and Deaf Football Player
Marvin Pearson joins The 15 for episode number 3. Marvin appeared on the Ellen show back in 2016 and told his remarkable story of being a blind and deaf football player. The video has been seen over 8 million times, and as you'll learn from the interview, Marvin has used the platform to better himself and so many others. Marvin is more than just an inspirational story. He's an aspiring rapper, comedian, and sports talk radio host. Some of the questions I asked Marvin include: why he thinks 1800 people bothered to dislike his video on YouTube(the answer will surprise you), how he thinks his life would be different if he hadn't lost his sight and hearing, and if he's heard from Ellen since the show. The YouTube video has been seen over 8 million times and, since going viral, has lead to Marvin getting to experience a lot of very cool things - including meeting New Orlean Saints Quarterback Drew Brees. It's a fascinating, uplifting, and inspiring story. Enjoy.

Andrew Meyer - Don't Tase Me Bro
On this, episode number 2 of The 15, I am joined by Andrew Meyer. You may remember him as the guy who, while being arrested by police on the university of Florida campus during a John Kerry forum, yelled out the now iconic phrase "Don't tase me bro". Meyer was there that day to confront Kerry about not protesting his loss to Bush in the elections. Shortly into his questioning of Kerry, his mic was cut and police attempted to take him into custody. Meyere struggled and was warned that if he didn't comply he would be tased, causing him to utter "Don't tase me, bro" during the struggle. His plea would be ignored and Meyer would be tased. One version of the video on YouTube reached over 7 million views In 2007, and the New Oxford American Dictionary listed "tase" as one of the words of the year Know your meme also mentions. In March 2010, the video was named one of the 50 best videos on YouTube by TIME. You can watch the full video HERE.

Within 8 month of being uploaded, the Evolution of Dance had been viewed over 70 million times. To date - the video has received almost 305 million views. I was able to talk with Judson about life back in the early days of viral videos, why he uploaded the video in the first place, and how he used it to his advantage.
