Andrew Borys is probably better at beer pong than any other human you’ve ever seen, and he has been rewarded handsomely for it.
The 21-year-old Canadian from Calgary told the Huffington Post that while making beer pong trick shot videos started out as a way to overcome shyness it is now something that has helped him get millions of views on the internet — and maybe more.
“I started making these videos because I was really shy and quite reserved, but I always thought it would have been really cool to be on TV,” he said. “I started making these videos to put myself out there, without actually having to put myself out there.”
This “useless skill” isn’t so useless after all.
Aside from the coverage his skill brings him and social media attention, Borys will have the opportunity to compete at the “World Series of Beer Pong” this upcoming June in Las Vegas, where there will some serious prize money at stake:
The World Series of Beer Pong is the largest, longest-running organized beer pong tournament in the world, created by beer pong players, for beer pong players. Past events have drawn over 1,000 participants from 45 U.S. States and 5 Canadian Provinces, offering the largest payout in beer pong history of a $65,000+ prize pool. Games are played on 8-foot BPONG Tables, and WSOBP Rules govern all gameplay. Players may buy-in to the event at any time prior to April 30, 2017, or they may choose to win their way to the event by competing in an official World Series of Beer Pong Satellite Tournament.
