A Drunken Talk Show and Unfortunate Booze

Posted By on Mon, Aug 24, 2015 at 10:11 AM


Many months ago I (naively, foolishly, ridiculously) agreed to be on an episode of Specials with Lex. The YouTube talk show, which just released its fourth episode, comes in half hour episodes wherein everybody melts into a drunk goddamn mess. 

Lex is very cool, local guy (you might/should know him as Oddkinn) and the specials are a throwback to his days at the District—a shot of Old Crow whiskey and a Miller High Life. It's, uh, hard to stomach. 

As you can see above, just as soon as we got the camera rolling, I make a crucial mistake and end up doing double shots all night long. (Did Lex make me do that? No. Is Drunk Chelo too cocky to back down? Apparently so.)

The video embedded above is part one of three—also known as the only part where I manage to speak like an adult human and not the world's most absurd (and, well, inebriated) teletubbie. If you're so inclined, you can watch the next two parts of our episode. If you make it through part three, you can see the world's most thorough re-enactment of the Usual Suspects. 

Watch it! I go from mild-mannered nerd to absolute nonsensical mess. I touch faces, I laugh tastelessly about an abortion joke in my favorite video game and I get a little too excited about Snoop Dogg. Lex and Stephen (the delightful human holding me steady at the end) also do things—I'd tell you about them, but I don't want to watch my nonsense sober, and their antics aren't the ones playing in an insane loop in my brain. Also I just talked over them whenever they tried to say anything. So.

And, HEY, you can be on the show, too. Get in touch with my bud Lex (specialswithlex@gmail.com). As Drunk Chelo was apparently very excited about, Lex pays for the booze.
