"Back It Up, Terry" Tee
You might remember Memphian, Antario Davis, from a 2017 video that quickly caught the attention of the internet, including rapper Snoop Dogg and comedian Rickey Smiley.
The video, which was viewed more than 4 million times, shows Davis struggling to back up his malfunctioning wheelchair as fireworks erupt around him. His cousin, who is recording the video, is famously heard saying, “back up, Terry!”
Davis told Memphis FOX13 News that he blamed an old and faulty wheelchair for the infamous video, and his family and friends started to raise money for a new one. Just over two weeks after his family started the GoFundMe, people donated nearly $40,000 to Davis’ cause.
When Quantum Rehab saw the GoFundMe page and video and recognized the chair as one of its own, the company gave him a new one, while another company, Team Adaptive, provided Davis an accessible van for a discounted price. The money raised by the GoFundMe drive went toward the vehicle and modifying Davis’ home to make it more accessible.
Davis received his new power wheelchair at his Memphis, Tennessee, home, and to celebrate, he re-enacted the 2017 video – but that time, he was able to back it up.
“I’m so happy that everyone made this come true for me,” Davis said. "I was extremely overjoyed and extremely happy that I had people out there that wanted to help me,” Davis said before the big reveal. “Unbelievable, unbelievable!”
Davis’ mom, Annette Carter, said the video’s online success has been “wonderful.”
“So many people say they have enjoyed it,” Carter said. “Some people say when they’re down, they’ll go back and listen to the ‘back it up, Terry’ video, and it brings joy to them.”
