DiCaprio Thanks ‘Drunkest Guy’ for Wolf Pointers

Forget YouTube thumbs-up and total views, although the latter number is about to skyrocket for one particular bit of footage shared by user houstondodgeball and others.

That’s because during a Sunday press conference at the NYC junket for The Wolf of Wall Street, star Leonardo DiCaprio explained that for a very memorable scene of Quaalude debauchery, he took inspiration from the above fall 2009 “Drunkest Guy” YouTube video. Per The Huffington Post’s Christopher Rosen:

“A lot of the research that I did really came from watching that one video, on loop… It’s a man trying to get a beer, but his body doesn’t quite [work]. That was a huge inspiration to me.”

We offer a toast and congratulations to Drunkest Guy for stumbling his way to the additional and entirely improbable status of DiCaprio muse.
