Security Cameras Catch World’s Drunkest Guy
You don’t usually remember the stumbles you take when drunk—in fact, usually, you have to reconstruct them the next day, based on a makeshift forensic analysis of cuts and bruises. But thanks to London’s commitment to violating basic privacy rights through the use of an extensive network of security cameras, this as-yet unidentified gentleman shouldn’t have a problem figuring out how, exactly, he got that huge gash on his head.
From The Sun Newspaper:
It has now emerged that the man, in his 40s, sheepishly returned to the Savoy and asked if his missing items had been handed in. Staff barely suppressed giggles as they recognised the man who had been tumbling around in the party. A source said: “We were all relieved to see he hadn’t fallen under a train. “Sadly we hadn’t seen his wallet or jacket. It’s a miracle he could even remember where he’d been that night.”
The mystery reveller was thrown out of the theatre awards do, hosted by Stephen Fry, after he fell over in front of guests including Sir Ian McKellen and Liam Neeson. Our CCTV shows the dinner-suited drunk gather pace as he totters down the flight behind the posh London hotel at 2am. He hits a side wall, tumbles, slides down the banister on his torso and does a back-flip on to his head. He then blows his nose on toilet paper and lands in a gutter before staggering round bleeding for more than six minutes.
A source said: “He was a mess. It’s amazing he didn’t badly hurt himself.”
