A short video, which appears to show a young girl drinking beer through her ear, became an Internet hit earlier this year. The footage, which is less than 2 minutes long, shows a group of Czech youngsters having fun while their female friend is showing off her amazing skill – drinking through her ear.
The unidentified girl downs a pint of beer using a straw sticking out of her right ear, while one of her friends holds pint glass. While many YouTube users believe the footage is fake and the guy who’s holding the glass is hiding a tube in his sleeve, many people also believe that such phenomenon could be real. According to one viewer, there’s a possibility that the girl’s tympanic membrane, or ear drum, is perforated, so that the beer is simply going down her Eustachian tube – the passage which connects the ear to the pharynx.
Fake or real, the video became a hit shortly after it was posted on the Czech Beer Festival’s Facebook page.
