Some people just know how to spend their time productively. I’ll let you decide whether you think that applies to these lads. (It’s a yes from me.)
Rain Wiggand and his pals in Ohio came up with a flawless plan to make a huge Stars and Stripes from Budweiser, Bud Light, and Miller Lite beer cans.
Of course in the process these cans would have to be emptied somehow. Though it was a chore, eight tireless artists got through 2,028 cans of beer.
Rain, 22, prides himself on being able to ‘drink beer in large amounts at an alarmingly fast rate’. He was just putting his skills to good use with this challenge.
Rain told us about the special place he lives where ‘beer flows down humans throats like water flows off of a waterfall’.
In March, I moved to a place where the beer flows down humans throats like water flows off of a waterfall.
It’s a small town of about 650 people and it’s called Collins. It’s located in northern Ohio.
I fit right in with the rest of these humans.
Talking about where the inspiration for the flag came from, Rain said:
I can’t remember how I thought of making my first flag, but I started that one alone for the first month and a half. I had two of my friends from Mount Vernon help me finish the flag.
That flag was 442 beer cans. For my new one I wanted to double the dimensions.
The previous one was about 5’ x 8’ so the new one would’ve been about 10’ x 16’.
Once I did the math, the can count was close to 2,000 so I kept adding to the length of the flag until I got over 2,000.
The dimensions ended up being 10’ x 17’ and the can count ended up being 2,028. As far as the consumption of the alcohol, we did it in 28 days.
Rain and one other guy drank everyday for 28 days, managing to get through nearly 40 per cent of the flag.
There were six other ‘main drinkers’ who between them made up about 50 per cent of the flag and the other 10 per cent were kept from parties they had every weekend.
Rain posted their accomplishment on Twitter on Independence Day captioned ‘2,028 beers and 28 hangovers within a month all in preparation for our Beer Flag. Our gift to America for this great country’s birthday’.
Commenters were extremely impressed, but some pointed out their flag only included 42 stars.
In response to these comments Rain said:
I can confirm that there are only 42 stars. I can confirm 100 people have said this. I can confirm 100 people don’t realise how hard it would have been to try and get 50 in while also making symmetrical (impossible). I can confirm those people are idiots.
I hope to see an even bigger one next!
