My teeth feel like they're coated in a sickly film. That's probably because I don't normally drink regular Coke at any speed, let alone under nine seconds. But that's how we spent our morning here at Giant Bomb as we recorded our response to Paul Barnett's video of Warhammer Online maker Mythic employees having a speed contest for fastest Coke drinking time. For reference, here's Paul's video:

  


After putting me on to the challenge this morning via Twitter, Ryan and I stopped off to get some Cokes on our way into the office. The following video was shot at 10:45 this morning.

  


Having used a funnel-type device for quickly drinking beers before, I understand the throat pain that comes with quickly drinking carbonated beverages. But the extra-fizzy nature of a can of Coca-Cola makes it way tougher than gulping down two cans of Coors Light. I'm currently using some popcorn to soak up the fluid in my tummy, and hope to make a full recovery.

Oh, and don't try this at home... at least... not yet.

Try chugging the Jolly Rancher soda, assuming there's any left. Failing that, save the rest of the coke for the podcast.

#39 Posted by EmptyQuarter (92 posts) -

That was totally irresponsible. And bloody funny! 

Jeff sure can swallow.
#40 Posted by strangeling (1260 posts) -

Confirmed:  the neon sign says EAT!  (Did we have confirmation of this before?)

Drew officially rocks.
Poor Ryan, there is no mercy.  Someone really needed to burp him like a baby to get all that air out.

That third Mythic dude changed the rules.  He already had the can open, and it was Diet Coke.  DISQUALIFIED.
Alas, I have no Coke on hand to attempt this.
#41 Posted by Kohe321 (3523 posts) -

#45 Posted by Hoshnasi (356 posts) -

Do the Irish car bomb challenge.  6 car bombs as fast as possible.  I have the local bar record at a minute and 20.

#46 Posted by SoothsayerGB (1468 posts) -

Ryan's realization after the fact of what he had just done, is the greatest and funniest thing I have seen in a long while!  "Ugh... Thats all inside me..."

Bet yeah I can beat the time easy.  I drink around 10 cans of soda a day.  All kinds, cept Diet.  But I would possibly have to break the rules.  If I squeeze the can, it's drained in a few seconds or shotgun it.  Trick is the angle in which the coke pours out.  Second pop the can and drink right away.  Less fizz.  Also gulp air when you drink.  Like when your trying to force a burp.   You can also put ice cubes in your mouth to chill it up, making your mouth cold.  So the soda fizzes less. 

Anti-acids are the steroids of this sport!

Damn, wish I had a camera of some sort!

Oh yeah, put sugar on your tongue for fun.

#47 Posted by PLWolf (921 posts) -

Poor Ryan. lol
You guys are awesome and if you want someone to take the rest of the Coke off your hands let me know. I'll can swing by Sausalito or you can bring it by The Fed Building in SF. ;-)

#48 Posted by Nets (319 posts) -

LOL nice one Jeff! Damn I can't chug for shit... Even Vinny could do better than me!

By the way, the Giant Bomb theme playing in the background while Jeff started chugging was epic.

#49 Posted by ahoodedfigure (4238 posts) -

The rule is it has to be warm coke, not chilled, cuz the bubbles are bigger.  PAIN!!

#50 Posted by Stevokenevo (573 posts) -
