Oh the land down under… you’re not helping the case of that Australian chef in Nashville suing over stereotypes with this one.

For some reason this story is big news in Australia.  Former Prime Minister Bob Hawke, who’s probably well-known in political party circles, is caught on tape at a cricket match chugging a beer.

The older gentleman casually takes the beer handed to him and goes to town, chugging the entire thing without pausing for air.   One newspaper reported it took the 82-year-old 11 seconds to shotgun the beer down.  It appears he’s a pro at this,  the aged statesman is said to have set a world speed drinking record in 1955.

The video is now a Youtube sensation, nearing the million views mark.
