On explaining one of the video contents, the girl cries with her mouth full of blood as she had a broken tooth and her dad follows recording this stuff. Totally distress and vulgar content, as the father must be rushing to give her first aid rather than filming such harsh moment. This video was bannered as Annabelle bloody tooth freaks out and dad saves the day, Toy Freak.
