In what seemed like a pretty cool gesture, Fat Mike, lead singer of the punk band NOFX and also, my personal hero, poured and handed out a tray of Patrón shots to the audience at his SXSW show in Austin, Texas. Free shots of premium tequila, what a great guy. But as you know from reading the title of this post, this was not your ordinary Patrón. Fat Mike then proceeded to show the audience a video he taped moments before the show, and that appears unedited, of him pissing into the bottle of Patrón and then pouring and handing the shots out to the crowd. The good news is that Fat Mike is an alcoholic, and his piss is mainly tequila anyway. Yum!
When TMZ questioned Fat Mike about his actions he said, “I confirmed that urine was not classified as a biohazard waste and not subject to the risks of legal ramifications of blood, semen, or feces.”
I’ve seen NOFX live many times and am happy to say, I’ve never accidentally, or purposefully drank any of Fat Mike’s urine…Except for that one time.
