I spent the weekend in Champaign, IL, home of the University of Illinois, cows, and alcoholism, and Friday night I learned of a delightful way to get drunk fast: play the “Party in the U.S.A.” drinking game!
In this lovely — I just died a little inside by saying that — video by one Miss Miley Cyrus, daughter of Billy Ray, many things happen repeatedly. My friend Greg laid out the rules for the game, which are as follows:
1. Drink whenever Miley touches her hair.
2. Drink whenever Miley kicks at the dirt.
3. Drink whenever anyone does an acrobatic move (flips, spins, etc.).
Now, you wouldn’t expect this to be a very effective way to get your drinking done, but trust me, if you follow the rules, you will finish a can of beer during the three minutes and 21 seconds. And when you play the game repeatedly, it’s a good way to warm up for the night.
Following the game, my friends and I had a conversation about the lyrics. Clearly, we are deep. Anyway, someone mentioned how they heard Miley had actually never listened to Jay-Z before. I’d bet that’s true, because you know the Cyrus household had one thing, and one thing only, playing on a continuous loop.
