A man who downed a full bottle of Jack Daniels in 13 seconds in a video that went viral tonight said it was a “stupid” stunt and regretted doing it.
Will Williams posted the video on his YouTube page after the reckless stunt was filmed by a group of friends,Â The Daily PostÂ reports.
The video, which has had more than 400,000 views, shows Mr Williams biting the seal off the 70cl bottle of 40% proof Jack Daniels bourbon.
As he downs the liquor his friends can be heard laughing in the background, with one calling him an â€˜animalâ€™.
After completing the stunt he jokes â€œNeknominate thatâ€, in reference to the controversial online drinking game.
Last night the 27-year-old, who filmed the stunt at a motorway services near Chester en route to Newcastle, said: â€œIt was something that I did jokingly and regret deeply.
â€œStraight away, I knew it was a stupid thing to have done.
â€œI was on a stag-do at the time, one thing led to another and things got out of hand.
â€œI wasnâ€™t dared and I wouldnâ€™t want anybody to do the same thing after seeing me do it.
â€œIt was a dangerous thing to do, I know that now and Iâ€™d never do it again.
â€œAfter I finished, I jokingly said â€˜necknominate thatâ€™ but I absolutely didnâ€™t mean it and didnâ€™t nominate anybody.
â€œWhen I posted the video, I only expected friends to view it reallyâ€
â€œI didnâ€™t realise that it would go UK wide and eventually world-wide, Iâ€™ve had messages from people all over the world since.â€
Some viewers described Mr Williams as â€œhotâ€ and â€œgorgeousâ€ with one telling him he deserved â€œbig respectâ€. Others expressed disbelief at the potentially fatal stunt, and called it â€œidioticâ€.
A 70cl bottle of Jack Daniels contains 28 units of alcohol.
The British NHS recommends men should not regularly drink more than 3-4 units of alcohol a day.
