DRUnK FOOTBALL? CHEERS!
“I can’t watch it back now,” says Morten Ramm. “It is just too painful.” Ramm – a former top-flight footballer in Norway and now a more established comedian – is looking back on his decision to get plastered with a group of friends and play a football match as a YouTube stunt. Each team had to have a blood alcohol concentration averaging at least 1.0mg/ml – which is five times above the legal limit to drive a vehicle in Norway. Morten and his team-mates had a wild “pre-party” in the dressing room, glugging the spirits freely, before staging an unbearably-bad kickabout in which participants were curling up on the floor, vomiting on the sidelines and engaging in minor skirmishes. When one player did finally open the scoring, the goal was disallowed after a breathalyser test ruled he wasn’t nearly drunk enough. “We were so out of it, most people can’t remember the game,” said Ramm, “Football and booze don’t mix.” Who knew, eh?
