Just remember, Zombies will always love you for your brain

Yeah, no. If you do that with the intention of impairing her judgement so she'll have sex with you that she will wish she hadn't had the next morning, that's kinda rapey. Sorry.

This chick is hot, too bad she's so smart.

JGarcia March 18, 2013 - 1:49 AM

Ha! Enjoyed the sarcasm at the end of the video, Laci.

Geisi Blanco March 19, 2013 - 12:45 AM

Myth BUSTED !!!! For those who drink for "that" excuse!

Kasimir Kurt March 19, 2013 - 5:33 AM

We don't really care about anything that other countries do, the only thing Ireland cares about is having a good laugh. Your girlfriend might freak out over it but if she does then that's a pretty good sign that she's not Irish and is probably just an American with Irish ancestry.
People in the states trying to do an Irish accent always end up sounding like pirates anyway.

PintLasher March 23, 2013 - 10:12 AM

I'm afraid you've got that a little bit backwards.
All the young are leaving their parents and getting rid of Ireland because the country that they call home has been run into the ground.

Pogue March 27, 2013 - 12:25 AM

Was that a dropped accent in the start? lol

Gunvarrel April 14, 2013 - 7:17 PM

Funny thing that you said: myth busted, because there was an episode of the Mythbusters of this topic :D

Dan Childs June 11, 2013 - 2:20 PM

I never actually knew people took the term "beer goggles" literally. Of course it doesn't transform your vision, what kind of ass hat would think such a thing. It is a metaphor for lowered standards and inhibition. My goodness lol

rexiimmortalis June 11, 2013 - 8:13 PM

I know it's childish but am I the only one who wants to see her in a dress? Post your comments below or subscribe to see Laci in a dress!

I just read that in the most stereotypical Irish accent I could ever imagine. And it was awesome.

sean hills July 9, 2013 - 7:51 PM

Actually it is a fact that Ireland is the second biggest DRINKING country behind the Czech republic and on St Patrick's day the population of Ireland as a whole consume twice that of what they do on normal days which is 131.1 liters (277 pints) Per person!!!

TheArtz19 August 27, 2013 - 2:27 AM

Didn't Mythbusters do this….?

groovygower July 27, 2014 - 11:15 PM

Can people stop pervng on this girl?  Yes, she's cute but she has a brain and personality – she's not 'just' a pretty face  How's about some insight into the research she's compiled or her style of delivery?
