Count Me In: The Human Puppet Drinking Game

June 12, 2019

In what has apparently been popping up at Oktoberfest celebrations worldwide in recent history, this is a human puppet style drinking game, in which contestants have to use strings to carefully maneuver a beer glass to their lips in order to drink. It looks like fun. It also looks like a great way to spill a lot of beer and chip a tooth. I think I've mentioned it before, but I chiseled one of my teeth out with nothing but a fork when I was in college. "Jesus, GW." Think Tom Hanks in Cast Away but with fewer friends.

Keep going for two different versions of the game being played (one with corded handles, one with strings tied around fingers).

Thanks to MSA, who's not convinced this game wasn't invented by breweries so people spill a bunch of beer and have to buy more. You're a smart cookie.

  • Move over Cornhole and KanJam the newest and most insanely funny backyard drinking game is coming soon called Tip the Bartender over on Kickstarter here:

    It’s been redesigned and on Kickstarter.

    I like the point of the video where the guys goal stops being to actually drink the beer and starts being to not hurt himself

  • GeneralDisorder

    Anyone remember that song Marionette by Soul Asylum? Neither did I until just now.

  • WhiteEagle2

    Isn't the beer more the "puppet" and the human the marionettist? The marionettist just has the "stage" strapped to his back.

    Edit: Corrected per Bling Nye's feedback.

  • Bling Nye

    The beer is a marionette, which is a type of puppet controlled by strings. The one controlling the marionette is the puppeteer called a marionettist.

    The one trying to drink the beer in this contraption is the puppet of the one that strapped them in and said 'try this!' aka, the Puppet Master.

    *sips beer* Or something like that, who fuckin' knows anymore these days.

  • WhiteEagle2

    Whoops, I've always thought that master was called the marionette! Thanks.

    The point I was trying to make is that the human was not the puppet in this "game".

    1 yr before I made the decision to discontinue my past job and I am too thrilled right now.... I started out working using the internet, for business entity I uncovered over the internet, for just a few hour each day, and I generate a lot more than I did on my office job... My pay-check for past month was 9,000 $... The most advantageous thing about this is the more leisure time I acquired for my babies...and that the single requirement for this job is basic typing and also access to internet... I am also capable to spend quality time with my loved ones and buddies and look after my little kids as well as going on holiday break with them really consistently. Don't avoid this opportunity and be sure to take action quick. Give it a look, what it is about...

    I want one of those setups

  • Bling Nye

    I'm 100% certain I can build this, and 100% certain I should not actually do so. Seems like a really great way to chip a tooth if you're drunk...

  • D3Fd0ck

    Get some silicone cups and maybe use a block of rubber foam for the "table" instead of wood. I still want one regardless.

  • Bling Nye

    Yeah, and maybe a clear plastic cup instead of a pint glass.

  • D3Fd0ck

    Thats what the silicone cups for :P This would be better being a ceiling attachment since the driver cant steer the wood on his back in the first place.

  • Doog

    If you do and sell them let me know there price.

    This is just what I need at parties for other people to do
