Father Of Four Hears Silence For The First Time

There are now countless emotional and powerful videos of people of all ages hearing for the first time thanks to new cochlear implant hearing aid technology. Somewhen Productions has taken this concept and hilariously spoofed by featuring a father of four who apparently “hears silence” for the first time when a technician screams at his kids to shut up. Naturally, he breaks down in tears when he finally experiences peace and quiet. 

The Internet is loving this parody which has instantly gone viral as the weekend begins. 

Be forewarned, the tech drops some adult language to get the kids quiet.

Cochlear Implants are amazing, relatively new technology that gives certain hearing-impaired people the ability to hear in a very real sense by replacing the hair cells that do not work in the inner ear with special hardware. 

The Internet‘s viral video world was first introduced to the power of the implant when then-deaf Sarah Churman heard for the first time in an emotional viral video from 2011. That video currently stands with over 16 million views

Now Catherine Arnold‘s 26 year old deaf niece Amy has gone viral after this touching six month old video of her first experience with her new cochlear implant started making the round online this weekend. 

Amy has never heard her parents or her son before her implant and now she finally can hear her little six year old boy yell, “Hi mom!” 

Ironically, it’s the little things in life that we often take for granted that are the most magical.
