What better way to kick back and enjoy a few drinks than watching an hour of hilarious clips? Power Hour videos are a great way to hang out, either together or virtually through video sharing services.
YouTube is littered with hundreds of “power hours”, so it can be a little tricky to choose which one to start with. That’s why we put together our 10 favorite ones going into 2021.
What is a Power Hour?
A power hour is a drinking challenge where each participant takes a shot of beer or light alcohol each minute for 60 minutes. Typically this is done while watching a 60 minute video with breaks each minute. There’s also a few other variants like “centurion club” which is 100 shots in 100 minutes, and “21 for 21” which is 21 shots in 21 minutes that’s usually done to celebrate a 21st birthday.
How Much Alcohol is Consumed in a Power Hour?
Assuming participants are taking exactly one shot every time for the full minute, that equates to 60 shots of beer (roughly 5 beers over an hour). This can vary however, as most shot glasses are either 1.5 or 2 shots. With that much alcohol consumption in a short period of time, it can be important to take breaks or tap out if you don’t think you can complete the challenge. Always drink responsibly.
