Can You Handle These Asian Drinking Games?


(crunching) (whining)
(muffled laughter) (happy music) – Today, we’re here to play
some asian drinking games. – It is Friday, it is 5 o’clock. – I have nothing to do
for the rest of the day, so I’m ready to drink. – I’m nervous. My hands are clammy. – Yeah, me too! – I’m also the world’s
most competitive person. – No competition at all.
– Oh, see that’s not true. – Fun fact, I have to present in front of my entire team after this video ends. – One person will walk
out of here the winner. – The rest of us will be on the floor. – Let’s get right to it. – Our first game is from
Korea, called Titanic. – We have beer and soju. – A beer glass is filled
halfway with beer. – Put the shot glass in and
we take turns pouring soju in. Whoever sinks it. – Has to down the entire soju bomb. – I’m pumped.
– You’re screwed. (beer can pops open) – Pour like half
– We need it to float! – Put the glass in there.
– I’m shaking. – Is it a magic trick?
– Be gentle. There it is. – One finger. (shouting) – Oh my god. I feel like
David Blaine right now. – Oh my god.
(nervous laughter) – Oh my god, I am freaking out. – It’s defying gravity. – Say goodbye Rose, ’cause
this ship is about to sink. – Oh no.
– Oh no. – No!
– Bye, Vaughn. – Cheers, y’all. – Remember, if you sink it you have to drink the entire thing. – I get it, I get it. (gasps)
Sara did it, Sara did it. – Seven, six, five. – The goal is not for me to choke. – But it is to burp really
loud when you’re done. (burps) – So the next game is from
China, called finger guessing. – Shooting out a certain number of fingers while simultaneously saying a number between zero and however many
fingers are participating. – Whoever guesses the exact amount or closest wins, and the
other two must drink. – So we’re shouting and
fingering at the same time. – You get it?
– No. When you guys are involving numbers and alcohol, already I’m
fucked in this situation. – Let’s get to fingering.
– Three, two, one. (all shout out numbers) – We have 21. I said ten.
– I said 30. I said 30. – So you win.
– Gan Bei! – I won, I won!
– I always forget. – Three, two, one.
(all shout out numbers) (all shout out numbers)
– I said 22. – 11.
– Um, what? – Everyone just has to drink. – Wow, guys. That is
a very stressful game. – It’s a lot of coordination.
You have to like, hold up a different number
than what you’re saying. – Cheers. That was a little embarrassing. – To being really bad at this game. – Next up.
– From Japan. – Is.
– The Pocky game. – Two people have to nibble away towards the center of a Pocky. – A la, Lady and the Tramp. – And whoever pulls away loses
and you finish your drink. – This is going to be the
most intimate I’ve ever gotten with a coworker, so, hope
you guys brushed your teeth. – All right, come on, isn’t
this getting you excited? (laughs)
– No. – Listen, this could take a
turn if you’re really drunk. – This game is how babies are made. (laughing)
– I’m a fucking champion. – I wanted to last so much
– That’s what he said. – I’ve got it down to
like this big before. (whining)
(laughing) – Really? I’m so glad I could be part of this intimate moment. – Cheers to us.
– Cheers to us. – Cheers to us.
– We’re really close now. – This experience has changed everything. – Can I start with my final thoughts? I have so many final thoughts.
(laughter) – Sober.
– I feel happy I feel relaxed. – I’m drunk. – I’m very excited about all
the games I learned today. – Brings us together, like
this. Now we’re best friends. – It’s not like the math game. – That was my favorite game.
– I was good at counting. – I honestly really like the Pocky game, but like this, it can get sorta weird. – In these types of games,
the loser is really the winner because you get to booze it up. – Drink responsibly though you
know, like drink responsibly. – I got nervous in the beginning that I wasn’t getting
drunk and then I sped up. – That being said, do you
want to play Pocky pong? – Pocky pong.
– Absolutely, 100 percent yes.

  1. Another variant of Fingers is Fives, which is the same thing but only guessing multiple of five with open or closed fists, less confusing and more fun

  2. After going to Korea with my husband (Korean) I can tell you neither him nor his friends play these games while drinking lol

  3. 0:05 that's like when boys have a crush on me and I'm getting awkwardly close to them XDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

  4. When I saw the pocky game i flashed back to all the Japanese guyxguy challenge, my fujoshi heart skipped a beat

  5. I think there's a different version of the finger game, where you only use your thumbs so the numbers are smaller, it's faster and more interesting. I used to play that with my siblings and the winner would get to slap the others.

  6. They looked kinda weak to me tbh. Im swiss, youre allowed to drink beer and wine (and similar things) at 16, the rest at 18. So maybe thats why

  7. "the math game" can be scammed:
    Let me explain:
    Let´s say there is 3 people with 10 fingers each = 30 fingers.
    If you divide that by 2 and say 15, 15 will be the best answer for each round.

  8. Me and my friends play the poky game ( without booze) a lot. I have kissed so many of my friends because of it.

  9. I wanna play the pocky game but no one would play it with me. Not even my closest friend wants to, even tjo u technically can just bite it off or pull away whenever. With onky losing as a consequence

  10. I wish people would stop being SO defensive about how Asia doesn’t include Middle East, India, etc. 🤦🏻‍♀️
    When people say “Asia” they’re talking about ethnicity and race NOT the entire continent.

    Ethnicity: the fact or state of belonging to a social group that has a common national or cultural tradition.

    Race: a group of people sharing the same culture, history, language, etc.; an ethnic group.

    PLUS Korea is known to be quite the drinkers and our drinking culture is huge. We have all sorts of games, rules, etc and I guess that stands out a lot.
    (yes I know other people would say the same in their area but once you experience the Korean way you will know what I mean)

  11. If you're looking for new drinking games, give this a go: I designed my app, Naked English, to help English students improve their pronunciation, but realised the tongue twisters would also make a brilliant drinking game: lowest % match has to chug. Brilliant in its simplicity and always a tonne of fun. Search for Naked English in the iOS AppStore, give it try at your next drinkathon and let me know what you think
