By ,         on

Thousands flock to Youtube to watch student pour pints of semi-skimmed on their heads

As The Tab celebrates 100,000 hits, a viral sensation we began to spread has reached 10,000 views in less than 48 hours.

Buying a pint of semi-skimmed at Jesmond Tesco this evening proved difficult

Milking  is now destined to become an internet sensation.

The video has already been picked up by local press and has been repeatedly shared on Facebook and Twitter.

Other universities – including Edinburgh, Nottingham and Cirencester – have already said they will be filming their own versions, with other Tab websites also posting the udderly amazing video

If you have for some reason not found a way to watch this genius yet, here it is:

Remember, you saw it on The Tab first.

    This is exactly why I am moving away from Jesmond. I've had enough of this idiotic, juvenile behaviour from the next generation of young professionals. It's a complete joke if these guys think that they will get anywhere in life larking around like this!

    Its simple … they are male……males are not capable of thought before the age of 25.

    • George

      Merlin. You're a kant.

  • Mike

    People are starving in AFRICA and there are wasteful scum who do stuff like this. Disgraceful.

  • Laura

    HILARIOUS!!! Completely harmless fun!

  • dublindweller

    Why are people complaining about a waste of milk? Were you gonna fly that tesco value milk to Africa yourself were you? Xs

    • g. cooper

      Southern students trying to be funny but in fact ending up looking totally bent.

    • Gershwin O'Moomoo

      Really not getting it are you? If you had any idea how much dairy farmers in the UK are suffering you'd begin thinking about this with some intelligence.
      I don't know whether you've noticed the state of our economy? Does the fact that we have a national debt over £1,000,000,000,000 mean ANYTHING to you? No. Why? Because you don't earn your own money, you have no family to support and you are ignorant of the real world.
      Time to wake up from your childish dream state.

      • Andy

        They did buy the milk…

      • Rob Calcium

        What a retarded comment you have just come up with Gershwin. Congratulations, it made me chuckle. I think if the Dairy farmers had any sense themselves, they would have started this craze. They must be having a right giggle to themselves and flicking through the new BMW mag at the thought of all the Milk they're about to sell.

  • Simon Pilot

    Negative Cooper.

  • Jeffrey Dunivant

    Relax guys! It's harmless fun and besides, its friggin hilarious!

  • Alan

    Isn't it so aonoying when people readily jump to a stereotypical view that in Newcastle all we do is smoke tabs and drink beer
    How wrong they are
    Brilliant as owt boys

  • Alastair McDonald

    Destroying the economy by spending £10 on milk, damn students

  • Scott donaldson

    FFs if the worst thecstudents are doin give them a fookin break , what's wrong with a bit of harmless fun,it's the older generation who need to chill there beans a bit , infect there's the next craze for older generation tip beans on yourself call yourself has beans lol

  • Matthew Price

    Why are the older generations so on their economic high horse about this? Its not as if the students broke the milk bank, and deprived families of their milk. And if you so idiotically put something related to starving africans, thats generalisable to all wasted product, not just milk – The students put some money into the economy and paid some tesco employee wages, lets enjoy some mutiplier effect, not gripe about it like ignorant children x

    Why insult AFRICA anytime you make yourself look stupid? Many in the so-called Africa live a better and more comfortable live than you do.
