Stupefyingly Drunk Gentleman From the Luke Bryan Concert Gets the WWE Treatment

Because the Internet is just the best.


Public service announcement: Never drink to such excess that you’re able to be given the Jim Ross treatment. And please stop leaving your trash everywhere for the city to redd up. All in all, there were 300 citations given at Saturday night’s Luke Bryan concert, including 10 for public urination and six for disorderly conduct. There were 15 fights and 154 calls to 9-1-1.

You’re better than this, country bros. But at least we have this glorious video from Benstonium.

Statistically, 21 percent of Pittsburgh is considered to have walkable standards to work and stores from respective areas.

As a result, this makes driving the car to work unnecessary.
