Songfacts®:

  • This hand clap infused, bouncy ode to oral hygiene displays Adam Young, a.k.a. Owl City's wit. The song was inspired by Young having to wear braces in his younger days.
  • Young told Female First that the song "is about people all over the world riding in cars on the way to the dentist and that queasy feeling that inevitably ensues."
