Can’t make it out to happy hour? You’ve always got the internet to keep you company while you’ve got a drink in your hand. Specifically Zoom, the video platform which has surged in popularity and found itself host to an unexpected array of makeshift online bars and parties.
It’s a phenomenon probably nobody would have predicted, but here we are. And Twitter is talking about it. A LOT.

8. Life as we know it
Leggo my ego.
Got drunk on zoom with the boys last night. Woke up to my GF angrily eating Eggo waffles like a Katherine Heigl movie “so do you think you drank a little too much last night?”

4. Blanket statements
Hey, to each their own.
In case you’re wondering how the quarantine is going, tonight I got wine drunk on zoom & bought myself a $60 tank top & then bought my friend a blanket with Adam Driver’s face on it because you can’t put a price in comedic gold.

3. Cried and prejudice
When there’s nobody to hang out with in the afterglow.
I got drunk on a zoom call and now have nothing to do but I’m still drunk so I guess it’s probably time to watch pride and prejudice for the 12th time and maybe cry???? Let see!!!! ??????

2. Internal clocks
According to my watch, it’s tomorrow.
According to my Fitbit, the last time I fell asleep before 4am in the last three weeks is when I got blackout drunk on a zoom call. #QuarantineLife

1. Reach for the stars
I guess this counts as trying out some new things?

Maybe this trend will become the new normal. If so, I’d like to claim a position as a virtual bartender. I won’t actually serve anybody drinks but I’ll take a rag and constantly wipe down my desk while saying things like “tell me about it” and “livin’ the dream!” I feel like that’s a service that needs to be filled, no matter the circumstance.
Have you had a drunk Zoom time?
