Yeah but they didn't drink the beer, empty bottles were supplied. Pfft. Amateurs.
2005-12-14 09:53:11 AM  
That's meant to be a tree?
2005-12-14 09:56:05 AM  
Everybody sing!

8,000 bottles of beer in a tree,
8,000 bottles of beer,
take one down, pass it around
there's 7,999 bottles of beer in the tree.

7,999 bottles of beer in a tree,
7,999 bottles of beer...

Hey, how come no one's singing along?

I think Drew was paid by Heineken to greenlight that.

/like my shiny new hat?

submitter: Vietnamese hotel workers build a Christmas HOLIDAY tree out of 8,000 beer bottles

War on Christmas!

Sure it's cool when they do it, but when I do it, my wife says I have a "problem" and need to "get help."
2005-12-14 11:12:45 AM  
No one took pictures when I built a floor to ceiling beer can pyramid in college. I've been robbed.

"the biggest of its kind in Vietnam" implies that there are others ...
2005-12-14 12:02:04 PM  
There's gotta be better pics than that ...
2005-12-14 12:02:07 PM  
rookies, i have done this with drunks!
2005-12-14 12:03:54 PM  
Hope no one gets the idea to throw some rocks at it.

2005-12-14 12:07:01 PM  
Don't you mean, Holiday Tree?
2005-12-14 12:07:46 PM  
Fa ra ra ra ra, ra ra ra ra.

Alchohol sucks! it should be banned!

just, you know, trying to make us smokers feel better about all the cigarette bashing of late.

/flame on

///at 10am

2005-12-14 12:09:48 PM  
Nabb1, agreed.

This, more than invading Iraq, gives me hope that we can spread the American way of life.
2005-12-14 12:10:49 PM  
the Vietnamese girl that I work with speaks pretty good English but instead of "blah, blah, blah" she says "bra, bra, bra" and I don't have the heart to tell her any different...
2005-12-14 12:11:04 PM  
kickzster, that's some nice transcription work right there.
2005-12-14 12:13:58 PM  
Praise Jesus!
2005-12-14 12:14:01 PM  

Hope no one gets the idea to throw some rocks at it.

Or a swallow, since they are war criminals when it comes to this type of thing.

They don't celebrate Christmas. They don't drink beer. Clearly a Heinie stunt, nothing more. If you're not into either, then the stunt DON'T COUNT.



/that's right I said CHRISTMAS
//Christmas, Christmas, CHRISTMAS
2005-12-14 12:17:34 PM  

Nice touch!
2005-12-14 12:17:49 PM  

Don't you mean, Holiday Tree?

With 1000 ladyboys dancing around it.

/might as well make the "War on Christmas" people stroke-out completely.
2005-12-14 12:17:51 PM  
"AvengerX", that was cute.

I like the small size of the picture, really paints a good picture of what that tree looks like. Wow, nothing like 30,856 pixels of suck.
2005-12-14 12:34:03 PM  
I know asking farkers for a favor is moot, but could any one elarge the pic so i can use it as a christmas or "holiday" (depending on which side of the 'war' your on) wallpaper

\i lack the photoshop skills to do it myself

I've been to Vietnam, so I get a kick out of your reply...

The Viets actually love the Heineken. I'd say the most popular beers in HCMC are Heineken and Tiger Beer.

And just before I left at the end of my vacation last year, they were starting to sell Christmas shiat in various stores.
2005-12-14 12:42:24 PM  
And people say we 'lost' in Vietnam.

If this isn't a sign of victory, I don't know what is.
2005-12-14 12:42:24 PM  
Nice Holiday Tree, AvengerX. This one's for you.

we were house-sitting for some friends while they were on vacation, and of course many other friends came to help with the demanding housesitting duties. we had a beautiful 7 tier pyramid of beer bottles erected on their glass topped living room table when in agonizingly slow motion the entire thing collapsed straight down through the table top. it was amazing to see and no one was even worried about it until the next morning
2005-12-14 01:09:57 PM  
That record should go to an American!

Drink up lads! We're building a Christmas tree!
2005-12-14 01:21:06 PM  
Best beer in Vietnam!! Contain formaldehyde. You go to hospital, next one free!
2005-12-14 01:47:44 PM  

No offense but you might be referring to a person from a different asian country. Actually wait a second, you should take offense. Most vietnamese can pronounce "Ls". Remember your war movies about vietnam and sucking the chrome off a ball hitch.
2005-12-14 01:48:37 PM  
How much would a larger picture cost....
2005-12-14 01:49:13 PM  
Do they not get wind or rain in Vietnam?
2005-12-14 01:50:56 PM  
These are better ones from last year (that picture sucked):

I'm thinking this deserves a "Redneck" tag.

Where's the obligatory "Drew seen at British Airways ticket counter" reference?

why do Buddhists need a Christmas Tree?
