For whatever reason, Smirnoff got two of the most popular actor / comedians to mix up Moscow Mules in Los Angeles.
TJ Miller and Thomas Middleditch, have very little experience in the bartending scene, but they did their best and put together some good Mules.
Of the two, Miller actually worked at a bar when he was younger. His career in the bar industry didn’t last long though, as he said he was fired after he and his Spanish-speaking co-workers nicknamed the general manager “Quince.” If you speak Spanish, you’re probably wondering why they called the man “Fifteen.”
“He (allegedly) liked 15-year-old boys, I think was the reason for that,” Miller said. “Welcome to the internet. Glad we got that in there.”
Thankfully, making drinks wasn’t in the books for either of them, and the whole comedy thing ended up working out a lot better. Now they’ve got fans left and right, leaving them with hard decisions when it comes to accepting drinks at bars.
The two shared their protocols on taking drinks from fans, and if you seem friendly enough Middleditch said he’ll have a drink with you.
“Depends entirely on what I’m doing, or how aggessive they are,” Middleditch explained. “If they seem like people that scare me, I tend to slither away, but if they seem like nice folks, I may do a shooter with them.”
Miller, however, won’t take you up on that drink because it never ends well.
“You never, like, take the shot, then have the greatest conversation of your life,” Miller said. “Plus, if you took all the shots they gave you, you’d die.”
Now you know. So if you see one of the comedians at a bar, Middleditch might take you up on a shot, but Miller could very well tell you to f*ck off.
Check out a segment of the interview below, as we played a litte word association where the duo gave their takes on burritos, In-N-Out, and even chicken nuggets. Middleditch even serenaded us with his old school viral McNugget song.
