To any Americans who are also big fans of this buy-in-bulk booze, sorry to say but I think Randy Colpek loves it just a bit more than you.
This ‘Kirkland Light King” made a series of commercials for Costco’s 48-pack of beer in hopes they would take advantage of these freely-made, cinematic masterpieces. Although they expressed no interest, Colpek knew these were gold and put them on the internet for all to see.
The videos all start with the Costco brew king busting through a wall of 56 beer boxes and pairing it with a slightly slurred, hilarious catch phrase to end it off. We can only assume he was drinking this favourite beer of his the whole time because after all, “Don’t drink water, fish piss in it.” You can tell Colpek and friends were having a blast creating these clips, and I can’t imagine why they wouldn’t.
What’s almost more entertaining than the video is the Reddit thread in which he posted it, answering fans die hard questions and compliments. He told fans he had approximately 18 beers a day for 5 days a week in order to get rid of the lofty total of boxes. This number may come as a shock, but Colpek reassured Reddit users saying that he’s only drinking it five out of the seven days of the week, so it’s not that bad.
Unfortunately this “highly-acclaimed” beer is not available in Canada, but I think the top comment of the video speaks to everyone when they say “This is not the hero America deserves, but this is the hero America needs.”
