I agree that beer pong games suck.

Living in your parents basement never looked so good.

Regarding the last trick on there, I found that despite a. it's very hard to see exactly what he does, especially at first flush, b. it may have taken 1000 takes... it was still completely, utterly awesome.

Where's the video that shows attempts #1-#500 for every one he made?

The "ABC Wide World of Sports" backing track is hilarious.

These things can't just happen by accident. This proves intelligent design.

This makes me shed a brief, silent tear for the legions of bored suburban youth who tirelessly honed useless skills for months on end, building up to jaw-dropping levels of prowess, only to have their dedication to their craft cruelly ignored and callously forgotten, because they had the terrible misfortune to live in the lonely, dark era before the dawn of the intarwebs.

Beer bong games, on the other hand, are a barrel of laughs.

that was awesome. I want to play beer pong really badly right now, just not against that guy.

re:eyeballkid

Who cares if this novel is awesome--where's the 500 crappy manuscripts he didn't publish?!

The last time some kid put this much effort into something, Gotham's crime rate dropped to an all time low.

I just hope that someone in Billy's entourage is good at costume design. Otherwise..

I don't use the word "hero" very often.
But this man is the greatest hero in American history.

A few months later they invited Billy and the beer-pong team to visit the White House. So he went again. And he met the President of the United States again.

If this is beer pong, where's the beer? Any BP player knows that the hardest challenge isn't decimating the cup, its finding someone gullible enough to play with you when you're a known gun.

"Hey, wanna play some beer pong?"

"FU, man, I've got to work next week..."

Yeah. Except this isn't writing, it's beer pong. Anyone can make a trick pool shot after 500 tries. If this was actually a game, none of those shots would be made and there would be some serious alcohol poisoning from the attempts.

This is totally awesome and much-deserving of the intense soundtrack.

eyeballkid, if none of the shots were made nobody could get alcohol poisoning.

Simply astounding. I love the fisheye shakycam.

Hi, I'm eyeballkid, and I can't enjoy much of anything on the Internet.

Or vomit. Whichever.

Note to self: to get more favorites, do more fpps involving unemployed slackers playing games with beer. Seems to be a fan favorite.
posted by miss lynnster at 2:05 PM on April 25, 2007


Re: the Quarters link upthread, it just isn't the same with the kid letting out his orgasmic screams after he hits a shot. Part of the awesomeness that is Billy is that there is no reactions to making the shot at all.

Both are awesome links, by the way. I know what I'll be doing with the next few *dozen* weekends.

Muchas gracias -- coincidentally, today in my American Folklore class, there was a student presentation on beer pong, so the kids will appreciate this one when I pass it along.

Sure, but top this basketball shot.
