What's up, fellas!
00:06
How're you feeling today?
00:07
You're about to be feeling a little better!
00:09
Oh, hey!
00:10
I'm a great person.
00:14
Oh, man!
00:15
(upbeat instrumental)
00:19
I meant to do that.
00:21
Now, let's talk about drinking with strangers.
00:23
My favorite sport.
00:24
If you show up to a golf course
00:26
on a Saturday morning by yourself,
00:27
you're gonna be paired with three total strangers.
00:30
So how you drink depends on who you're paired with.
00:33
The first thing you gotta do
00:33
is feel out your playing partners.
00:35
Are you playing with an elderly couple,
00:37
or college bros?
00:38
(laughing)
00:39
Here's a thought, bring a couple extra beers
00:41
in your golf bag turned ice chest,
00:44
and offer your new best friends a few.
00:46
Even if they decline, they'll respect you.
00:48
Hey dudes, yeah?
00:51
Yeah!
00:52
Maybe they're on a juice cleanse,
00:53
and in that case, you don't wanna be their friend anyway.
00:56
Empty calories, right?
00:58
And remember to pace yourself.
01:00
Being a sloppy golfer is forgivable.
01:02
But being a sloppy drunk, not so much.
01:06
It's a marathon, not a race.
01:08
Ricardo!
01:09
And most importantly, getting trashed on your own
01:11
is not a good look,
01:13
but staying hydrated with your new best buds is.
01:16
Why don't we get you a water.
01:17
All right?
01:19
Water 'til the next hole.
01:24
If you can't beat 'em, I mean...
01:26
If you have some incredible stories
01:28
about your friend being a jerk on the golf course,
01:30
then leave them right below!
01:32
Embarrass your friends, it's really fun.
