Kelsey is my favorite part of ALL BuzzFeed video. I may have a crush on her, but even still, just this video alone shows how hilarious she really is

Absinthe, from what I see in this video, is when you’re existentially bored and need to laugh at life cause seriousness 24/7 can kill your soul.

Oh the poor babies, when the Irish tried Absinthe for the first time they tried 4 versions and only the first used a mixture, the rest were done as a shot, even the 90% one, so this is the wimps version.

Actually, they all just appeared to be a bit buzzed. I didn’t see anything that made me think they were hallucinating-with the exception of the “do you see these lights?!” comment. But, they all looked like they were having a GREAT time! So, *_CHEERS!!_* 🥂👍🏼👍🏼😁
Josh Gluchoff (20 days ago)
Really didn't do your research here guys... American absinthe lacks wormwood oil the active ingredient that causes hallucinations. Hence why "absinthe" is legal in america now. You need to go overseas to obtain real absinthe.

There is a big difference between American absinthe and foreign absinthe. They should have clarified that.

Soooo,,, I'm just sayin,,,,,,, the whole world is going to think the entirety of the USA is populated by Gay Folk now. We could have balanced this video out a bit more by adding a redneck, a wigger, a jew and an American Indian to kind of round this panel out a bit don't you think? We are a melting pot here people, come on.

Still not technically proper absinthe as it doesn't contain wormwood.

Got myself a bottle of 70% alc. Green absinthe and took it as shots with some friends. That stuff burns on the way down, let me tell you
halfthefiber (2 months ago)
Nobody trips on absinthe anymore. I'm pretty certain they were coaxed into thinking they are hallucinating when they're probably just tipsy (or drunk).
ren branwen (2 months ago)
Of course modern day absinthe won't cause hallucinations....... theres no wormwood in it anymore
Regina Füleki (2 months ago)
In hungary we put absinthe on the spoon light it on fire, wait for it to burnt a down then put that in a shot of absinthe and drink it.

What is absinthe
stian sandanger (2 months ago)
But what is the alcohol percentage? You can get 40% vol. absinthe and all the way up to 98% vol. absinthe, maybe more. And also what kind of herbs are they drinking, because absinthe can be made with so many different spices. For example in Norway, the ones that is known to make you hallucinate is illegal, but there is some that you can drink.
Mary Ann Thornton (1 month ago)
Traditionally absinthe has a very very high alcohol content. All proper absinthe are made with wormwood. Now I notice they’re drinking two different types of absinthe because there is a type of absinthe that is made without the secondary herb coloring process

Ana Fdez (2 months ago)
I'm Spanish and we don't do it with water or sugar. Test tube shots is our preferred method. It does get you hyper drunk instead of chill drunk tho, in my experience

“A straw is just a urethra”
“Thing is both of us have pretty high alcohol tolerances” Ten minutes later “AAAAAAAAAAAAA”
“Is this legal?” “Eeeeehh whatever” “Can we talk about this glass?” ‘Oh this glass’
