When Dr. Oz’s latest “Bros” video debuted on YouTube last month, the doctor seemed to be having fun, posting a spoof of a “The Big Bang Theory” episode.
“Brick” stars John Goodman, Kristen Schaal, and David Hyde Pierce, and the video was directed by James Rafferty, who also directed “Dr. Oz.”
But after the clip debuted, the video became a bit more serious, with the doctor revealing he’s a serious, serious surgeon who also has a serious hobby.
As part of the parody, the camera zooms in on Goodman, who’s playing himself in the video.
Goodman is a surgeon in a hospital in California, and in the clip, he’s standing next to his computer monitor, staring at a series of dots.
The doctor then tells us, “I’ve been in surgery, I’ve done it all, and I still get to see the same old faces.
The same old doctors.”
The doctor is shown at a hospital while on duty, and at the end of the clip he sits in his office.
“I’m still able to see a different side of the world, and even the doctors around me are able to make a difference in their patients,” Goodman said in a statement to Entertainment Weekly.
“That’s why I’m proud to be a doctor.
I have the privilege of caring for patients like myself, so I want to help you make better choices for your future.”
The clip ends with Goodman saying, “If I could only go back to the day when I was a teenager, I would have never let the world get in the way of my dream.”
The video has gone viral since it debuted, garnering more than a million views.
As of Tuesday, the Doctor Oz video has more than 1.3 million views on YouTube, making it one of the most viewed videos on the Dr. Pepper YouTube channel.
The clip also received more than 6.4 million views from viewers who have shared it on social media.
Goodman said he hopes to get the video made into a feature length film.
“My hope is that if we can make it into a full feature, that’s going to give you more of an understanding of how this surgeon does his job,” Goodman told Entertainment Weekly in an interview.
“There’s nothing like being able to sit back and have a conversation with a professional.”
