"Neknominate" drinking game comes to Cumbria

A drinking game which is believed to have originated in Australia has found its way to Cumbria.

EM Gareth Metcalfe neknominate
Gareth Metcalfe does his "Neknominate" challenge in a horse trough at Crooklands near Kendal.

The "Neknominate" challenge involves people filming themselves "necking" a whole pint of beer (drinking it all in one go) in the most creative way they can, uploading it to a Facebook page made specifically for the challenge and then nominating a friend to do the same thing. The person who is nominated then has 24 hours to film themselves and carry on the chain.

The challenge follows on from other internet crazes such as planking which involves people taking pictures of themselves laying flat in various unusual places.

Whilst most of the pages set up for the challenge say they do not condone illegal behaviour it has been reported that some people have filmed themselves drinking and driving and commiting other illegal acts.

Have your say

nek nominations are useless and pefetic
