They seem to be doing a lot of acting and not a lot of actually being drunk.

After watching the "behind the scenes" video I would like to retract this statement.

Apparently drunk people trying to act look exactly like people trying to act drunk... My world is blown.

Huh, the composite work is actually really pretty good considering it was shot on a DSLR.

"Gorgonzola" IS a great name for a space villain, though.

I want them to reshoot it, but this time, film each shot at a certain documented level of drunkenness. Starting with completely sober as a baseline. Then at, say, alcohol blood level 0.05, then 1.0, then 1.5, then 2.0, etc. until the porcelain bus arrives.

Sequel to Cleverbot; more info from Laughing Squid.

Does the success of Drunk history and production value of Star Drunk indicate enough of a trend for this to be labeled as having jumped the shark? It was good, but I fear we'll soon have Dancing with the Drunks as the next logical television leap.

That's pretty much what all 1970s variety shows were, isn't it?

And the step after that...

Hey! I recognize the Drunk Commander from college, at least I think I do. Not the type (authoritative and drunk) but the actual guy. That's mildly thrilling - "Hi Greg!" Also, this is funny. I think I got a contact drunk through my screen....

I can't believe this is the first time this video is making it to metafilter! I'm mildly ashamed at how much this made me laugh the first time I saw it.

Jeez, totally, all Solid Gold episodes based on Scarface-style mounds of coke?

Wow. That Stevie Nicks performance is amazing. So great and so terrible at the same time (seriously, that dancer in the instrumental break? WTF?) - and is that Waddy Wachtel on guitar? So cool/awful.

If you released that song today - unaltered - with the Daft Punk helmets on the sleeve art for the single and with a music video featuring just those two guys, you'd make millions and have a Billboard #1, guaranteed. That synth!

They did this with a music video.

The Captain has the best drunk faces.


I guess that's why he's the captain.

Ummm, Solid Gold?
posted by Samizdata at 5:34 PM on September 20, 2013


Yes, yes, I am more familiar with Solid Gold than I'd like to be, but that was even a little far for the show, if memory serves. Then again, my memory of Solid Gold may be affected by the trauma the show inflicted.

Haha best of the web.

LeBeef's eyes looked really puffy at the end there.

Why are the women all in singlets and the men get to wear shirts?

Trauma? Whatever do you mean?

I work with someone who worked on this.

Also the Captain is hot.

I haven't been drinking at all today but watching that made me feel drunk.
