Ekstra Bladet Journalist Matches Nicklas Bendtner’s Boozy Blood-Alcohol Level, Tries To Drive A Car (Video)
By Chris Wright
As you’re probably aware, the big story coming out of Danish football at the moment is that Nicklas Bendtner has been banned from driving for three years, fined €113,000 (£97,000-ish, i.e, slightly more than his boxer shorts cost him last summer) and banned from representing the national team for six months after he was arrested while drink-driving the wrong way up one of Copenhagen’s busiest streets in the middle of the night last weekend.
As part of their dedication to intrepid journalism, Danish tabloid Ekstra Bladet had one of their hacks, a chap called Mads Kristensen Bloch, liquor himself up (get “Extra Bladdered” if you will!) on Jack Daniels to match Bendtner’s reported blood-alcohol level of 1.75 and attempt to pilot a motor vehicle around a simple slalom course.
It didn’t go particularly well, as the video footage over on Ekstra Bladet’s site will duly attest.
Call us cynical, but that just looked like a good excuse to get hammered at work!
