Exclusive Interview: Man Vs Booze

By on

We catch up with the booze superhero of YouTube in his final and only interview.


Hi MvB. How are you?


Your third episode, ‘Man vs Vodka’, has had more than 330,000 hits. What’s it like being a YouTube phenomenon?

I like turtles.

Tribute videos such as ‘Man V Booze Dubstep Remix!!!’ are a credit to your fan base. What’s your relationship with these fans?

I love my fans, especially my fans in Africa.

Have you used your internet fame to pull?

No, I may be famous now, but I’m still ginger.

You recently consumed 160 alcohol units onscreen in two weeks. That’s impressive. Have there been some serious off-screen hangovers?

Hangover isn’t in my dictionary.

You faked an admission to hospital because you were worried you were ‘sending out the wrong message’. What was your intended message?

I didn’t expect people to mimic my actions so had to pull the plug as I had become the ‘poster boy for binge drinking’ and I didn’t really want that.  I just wanted people to appreciate the humour and ridiculousness of it all, not copy it.


Do you have more than one liver?

Well you know cows have four stomachs?  I have four livers.

One sad Youtube soul claims to see you as a surrogate father figure. How does that make you feel?

It makes me feel sorry for them.

Judging by films, men who drink heavily are usually either two dimensional or have daddy issues. Which are you, if either?

I’m a man of mystery.

What did you make of being called a ‘”foolish” student’ in the Daily Mail’s headline?

It hurt a little, but they have a point.

Scotch or bourbon?

I’m a custard cream man myself, not too into bourbons.

Will you be putting your signature vest and ski mask on ebay?

Maybe baby.

And, finally – should we conclude that Man defeated Booze?

Of course I defeated booze, I never lose.

Cheers for the chat MVB, and… Adios.

Ciao for now.

    Rachel bitter she didn’t win? Useless candidate and editor.

    • Guest

      Exclusive scoop tends to point to good editorial skills

      • Guest

        Exclusive scoop tends to imply using private and confidential information that was furnished only to candidates for their own personal gains.

        • Guest

          ….candidate, for their own personal gains.

    • Map Man

      Nope- I think this is a news article about something that actually happened on a student media site. Not whatever you’d rather it meant.

  • Jonathan Kerr

    It’s good to see The Tab actually maturing and not spilling sensitive information before official deliberations have taken place. If only such care had been taken two days ago.

  • anon

    shocking, unneccessary behaviour – hope the sabb gets suspended and the elections for the position are re-opened!

  • The Entire Student Body

    Finally something appropriate! if this goes through there might actually be some democracy and justice at our uni

  • ST

    LOL as if an elections committee can just decide to ‘rewrite the constitution’. They can’t. That’s why AGM exists.

    • Chris

      Actually…. You’re wrong.
      Had you ATTENDED the Agm, you’d have known they got moved into bylaws that have the ability to changed via student council 😉

      • ST

        So it’s not ‘rewriting the constitution’ at all is it.

  • Name and shame

    Cough *welfare sabb is in for it* cough
