Over the millennia, humanity has evolved many creative ways to shed baby teeth. Conservative souls simply work 'em back and forth until they pop out; adventurous kids try tricks like the old door-slamming method. But this must be a first: a kid's dad yanking one out with a remote-controller quadcopter.

Perhaps the best part of this video (via Time) is how excited Adam isā€”he's practically dancing in place as his dad sets everything up. They couldn't find the tooth afterward, but that seems a small price to pay for GLORY.

Believe it or not, though, this isn't the first father-son team to take to the skies to remove a baby tooth. Back in 2009, a kid removed one of his with a model rocket (which was of course captured on YouTube). Perhaps youth isn't wasted on the young, after all.

Please do share your most gruesome baby-tooth-removal stories!
