Judge David Johnson is the life of the party, whether anyone shows or not.
Hey loser. This is for you.
According to the disc case, this DVD was made in 2013. That comes as a genuine shock, since the production values have been pulled straight from a mid-90s Geocity site. But it's not about the presentation here, it's about the content and, well, I'm still utterly befuddled.
Here's how this DVD plays out:
Hosted by Scott Young, a skilled trick bartender, Life of the Party features virtually no trick bartending. Apparently, according to the marketers, what will really make you the envy of fellow partygoers is screwing around with a few drinking straws.
The guts of the DVD—and, presumably the key to making you the life of the party—is the collection of challenges and riddles. They are extensive so you can be assured you're getting plenty of runtime for your buck. As far as quality diversions? Not so sure. If you're partying with a bunch of drunks who will be awed by the sight of upside-down beer bottles and one-handed match lighting, then, yeah, I see how you could be rocking it hardcore.
The tricks and challenges are goofy, but the riddles? What's here that you couldn't track down with a quick web search? In fact the URL "famousquotesandjokes.com" is constantly flashed during the excruciating "Outrageous Pick-Up Lines" segments (spoiler: they're not outrageous) so, yeah, might as well go there. The worst part: the riddles are slowly dictated over crawling text and crude animation.
Guilty. Here's my pro-tip for being the life of the party: engage in
