The YouTube video of David DeVore in the car after the dentist is an early meme culture classic, with the sales of meme NFT’s surpassing $2 million USD since February. Recently, there have been other memes sold on NFT platforms for significant sums.

The NFT auction will give buyers an opportunity to own a piece of entertainment history that received over 140 million views, and featured on The Today show, The Tyra Banks Show, Fox News, and Forbes. This video was posted during the dawn of the social media age, when people shared everything about themselves on Facebook on a regular basis.

“We’ve dabbled in crypto during quarantine, and we came across NFTs because of that,” David mentioned in an interview. “David After Dentist has been an amazing ride since 2009, so why not?”

“Foundation is a platform that fosters all kinds of creators, and we’re thrilled to see the original arbiters of memes and internet culture finally find recognition in the NFT space.”
