Jennifer Garner on Thursday shared a hilarious throwback video on Instagram of herself crying over Hamilton while under the influence of anesthesia from the dentist. In the video, the 45-year-old actress is seen sitting in the passenger seat of a car talking about the “sad part” in Hamilton with someone over the phone.

“They did the sad part of Hamilton and I started crying. I couldn’t stop. He said ‘Are you OK?’ and I said ‘You are so beautiful,’” the actress says over the phone before breaking into laughter and tears. “It’s so beautiful. Listen to this song. It was so beautiful. So, I told him he had to see it.”

The actress shared in the caption that she was delirious from laughing gas and novocaine after a dentist visit. It’s only been two weeks since Garner joined Instagram, and this video—her seventh post—has been viewed more than 22,000 times.


Those are some impressive numbers for a Instagram newcomer, but she’s not the first person to hit it big with a hilarious post-dentist video. That honor goes to David Devore, who went viral on YouTube after his father posted a video of the then-7-year-old loopy from a dental procedure. In the “David After Dentist” video, David famously looks around bewildered and asks his dad, “Is this real life?”

While Jennifer isn’t questioning the reality of the world, her “review” of Hamilton still has fans laughing.
