In case you’re wondering what I’m listening to while I write this and I know you’re all on the edge of your seat! It’s Phoenix. The indie-rock group Phoenix from France. All day long. What a great band, they are so cool. With their rolling guitar and pronounced keyboard melodies coupled with great vocals and lyrics, the band fr- ahh, what am I doing? I’m supposed to be talking about a drinking game and a movie. Sidebar alert! Screw it.
Somebody got DRunk last night. Somebody got cute and decided that it’d be a good idea to do a drinking game on a Monday night being unaware of what the possible outcome could be. Well, two people because I played this one with a good friend, I’ll just refer to her as Helen of Troy. (SHOUTOUT!: Thanks for doing this with me.) I knew going into this it would be an ambitious one and having seen the movie I was certainly aware of the excessiveness of this event. However, I never really thought of it in terms of drinking and exact numbers. Truthfully, the only research I did was to see if this had been done before. And while I’m sure thousands of people have attempted this around the world on a whim or on the regular not a soul has written about it. They have drinking games for this movie online but none of them pertain to what I’m going to enlighten you on. So, I thought what the hell? Enjoy! But wait, the rules. I promise I won’t do this too much more.
Rules: We pick a recurring instance of some event, saying, object in a movie and watch for it every time it happens. (Tip: It’s easier to do this with movies you’ve already seen so you’re not distracted at key plot points.) We then take a “sip” every time this occurrence happens. A sip can be a coffee-like sip or, at most, 1/4th of your drink, I’d say try to keep it in between. We’ll then take our experiences and rate the drinking game on a scale of 1 to 5 drunkedness. On to it!
