Okay, "Shit Bartenders Say" is a Pretty Great Mixology Parody Too

Posted By on Wed, Feb 6, 2013 at 2:45 PM


In this morning's recap of our favorite mixology parodies in recent memory, we neglected to mention last year's "Shit Bartenders Say," a fact many of you pointed out to us on Twitter. We apologize -- we never saw it the first time around, because we tired of the "Shit [People] Say" meme almost as soon as it started.

But whether because the concept seems fresh again 12 months later, or because it's actually pretty funny, we admit to LOLing at this one more than once. (Favorite lines: "Aquavit bores me." "You should try my cherry bark cayenne bitters." "Am I the only one that gets smoke on this?")

It's not quite as good as Parks & Rec's masterful skewering of "molecular mixology" a few weeks ago, but it's pretty funny. Watch it after the jump.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
