A man who drunkenly bought cheap veneers in the hope of attracting ladies was devastated when the giant gnashers left him a dead ringer for Freddie Mercury.
Chad Hunt had been looking forward to a friend’s 30th birthday in Newcastle next weekend and decided to buy himself some ‘pearly whites’ online after returning from a night out.
But when the delivery arrived on Monday, the huge white teeth covers weren’t as he’d imagined – with the £13.50 set making him look like the Queen front-man.
Believing his dreams of romantic success were shattered, 25-year-old Chad decided he’d post the video online to at least entertain his friends – but never imagined he’d become a viral sensation.
The video has since had almost 1million views as well as more than 27,000 shares, likes and comments and Chad has been inundated with requests for a night out from Geordie women ahead of his weekend away.
Chad, from Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, said: “I looked like Freddie Mercury. My teeth were like I’d swallowed a piano.
“I order them the other day from Amazon and I was p***ed.
“I thought I’m going to get some pearly whites and I’ll be ‘posing ’til closing’.
“They came through the post and they’re obviously not what I’d picked out.
“They’re not proper veneers – the proper one are £300. These were cheap – only £13.50.
“On the photo I was looking at they looked mint.
“I thought ‘what the f**k are these’ when they arrived. I looked like an idiot.
“It’s gone global now though – I’ve had girls message me from Newcastle saying they’re coming out with us.”
In the video, Chad poses hungover on his sofa after another night drinking, before bursting into an hilarious rendition of ‘I Want To Break Free’ – hoover and all.
The party-goer is seen miming along to the hit track while struggling to keep the over-sized teeth in his mouth.
Chad said: “I’d had a few beers when I ordered them last week. I’d been for a drink after work and I ended up coming in bladdered.
“I’m at Newcastle this weekend on a lad’s weekend for my mate’s 30th birthday party so I wanted them for that.
“I just picked them – I wasn’t expecting to spend loads on them.
And I’d seen a few people with them before but I’m not really clued up with things like that.
“I was trying to impress the women but it backfired massively. At least everyone else found it funny.
“I’ve always wanted to stand out but this is taking the p**s.
“For the sake of £13.50 I’m not getting a refund. I’ll just keep them in all weekend to make my friends laugh.”
