The intricate video of him at the dentist was all a joke

Strahan’s short documentary-style video captioned, “I did it. #GoodbyeGap,” chronicled his dental appointments. One shot of the video had him sitting in a patient’s chair while talking to his dentist about his excitement towards this new change in his life.

Fans inundated his comments saying how much they loved the gap and how it was a part of him.

Come to find out on Thursday, it was all an April Fools’ Day joke!

Strahan posted a video update while wearing a face mask, talking about how much people loved his signature gap and expressed their upset feelings over him getting rid of it.

He revealed that it was indeed a prank, saying the “gap is here to stay,” and we can call thank his mother for that because apparently, “momma likes it.”
