Smile, You're on TV
Big Brother is never short of drunken antics. In this video, one of the housemates tries to leave her hammock for some Tums and, needless to say, is less than graceful in the process.
Between Two Ferns
This guy’s BAC is the least of his hammock problems. Those two trees look about eight inches in diameter, and that “hammock” looks like it was cut out of a child-sized hockey goal. He never stood a chance, but you can’t help but admire his persistence.
He Needs New Friends
Even in a state of inebriation, this guy nailed getting into a hammock and falling fast asleep. Unfortunately, his friends are terrible people.

Two Tipsy People, One Sleeping Bag Hammock
Two is not always better than one, especially when it comes to getting into a makeshift sleeping bag hammock after a few drinks. But these guys are persistent and undeterred by failure—just look at the related videos. You’ll see seven more clips of these same two guys trying to get into their creation.
Just Put Your Bum In It
If you assumed these ungraceful, uncoordinated drunkards to all be American, you were wrong. Even the buttoned-up Brits have their share of trouble. The simple command of, “Just put your bum in it!” turned out to be a lot easier said than done.
