Australian guy here. Let me translate for you seppos.

<b>The new trend that encourages friends to skol a beer, film it, then dob in their friends has swept social media in the past week. </b>

The latest fad on social media is to film yourself, chug a whole beer in one go and at the end of the video nominate a friend to do the same thing.

if you don't do it, a drop bear will come and eat you in your sleep.

The "nek" part of neknominate comes from the meme "nek minnit". Google it for further info.

rnatalie: Try ordering coffee sometime there.    Even Starbucks uses the goofy aussie names for things.   Flat white?  What the fark is that.

It's a no-foam latte. A white coffee that is flat. Also, a macchiato is not a twenty ounce drink with syrup in it.

mediocretaur: so the Australians figured out how to chug a beer?

Oh we've got it figured.

In 1955 Bob Hawke downed 2 and a half imperial pints in a record 11 seconds. He later became prime minister.

6 years later a law student in Queensland broke the record by downing 2.6 imperial pints in 7.9 seconds.

In 1989 David boon (cricketer) drank a record 52 cans of beer on a flight to London.

Yeah I watched the videos and it looks like it all translates to "chug one beer"

Stopped reading after 'craze continues to sweep social media'.  Whatever it is, it's dumb.  Perhaps 2.7 Harlem Shake units of dumb.
