Chinese Man Chugs His Beer ‘Tornado’-Style and Twitter is All for It
He also chops bricks by hand
A 33-year-old Chinese “peasant” has taken his drinking game to a whole new level by spinning the bottle and chugging the “tornado” of alcohol all the way down.
With his unique drinking style, Liu Shichao has amassed more than 127,000 followers on Twitter, despite only joining the platform in August.
I grew up in a rural villige. when I was a child, I did farm work like irragation, sewing seeds, ploughing (using cattle), harvest (by reaphook) with my parents and brother. It was hard, but I was happy. I played with my little friends，many many interesting things. I miss them. pic.twitter.com/J4NDyzFjLS
Liu, who goes by the moniker “Hebei Pangzai,” brands himself as an “ordinary peasant from China” and the “inventor of the ‘tornado’ beer-drinking style.”
The 33-year-old farmer lives with his family in Hebei, a coastal province in northern China, where he also runs an online meat store.
Tornado tutorial🌪🌪🌪🍺🍻🍺. Swirl the bottle clockwise or anticlockwise, not shake it back and forth, to make the beer spin like a tornado in the bottle🌪🌪🌪🌪🌪🌪. This is why I call it “Tornado”. Hope you can master it. #Pangzai#Tornadopic.twitter.com/V8VpNIkYGJ
Liu never dreamed of becoming famous on a platform he had never heard of before.
“I was really surprised. I thought it was unbelievable. My heart was very affected,” he told Deadspin. “I really have to thank those people who shared my videos on Twitter.”
Liu, who is now being hailed “king,” also responds to his viewers — and even greets them on their birthdays — in English.
“A Turkish friend asked for my address so he can send me some liquor from his country. And there was that challenge to drink ten pints of beer. Also, a lot of people call me ‘king,'” he told the outlet.
