Bartender Philip Traber isn't messing around. The guy takes his craft seriously. Up until recently, his personal best mark for his signature move was pouring 14 jägerbombs at the same time. That's a world record, even if it doesn't currently appear in the Guinness World Records. Nonetheless, 14 jägerbombs is so 2015. Traber set out to top his personal best mark recently.
The skilled barman went for 17 jägerbombs at once and managed to accomplish it in a pretty flashy fashion at an event in Dusseldorf, Germany. Traber achieves the feat by setting up glasses of Red Bull with an empty shot glass balanced on the rim. Then he carefully pours Jägermeister from stacked glasses he had balanced against his shoulder and dominoes the full shot glasses into the waiting cup.
Sounds easy right? Like all masterful things, he probably makes this look a lot easier than it really is. It certainly took some practice. Traber has rehearsal videos up on his YouTube channel, as well as videos of him doing other tricks with jägerbombs. That seems to be his specialty.
While 17 is impressive, it's far from the most shots ever domino-ed into glasses. That record goes to a Señor Frog's in Nassau, Bahamas where in 2013, celebrating the bar's 10th anniversary, the staff managed to domino 4,107 shots.
Nonetheless, the above video is pretty amazing. Traber will no doubt be the cause of countless broken glasses at parties around the world for the next few weeks.
