The Killer Cobra Beer Challenge

It’s dumbest challenge to hit the internet since the Kylie Jenner lip challenge. Seriously…don’t; just don’t…

The Killer Cobra Beer Challenge

What’s the Killer Cobra Challenge?

Syn. “King Cobra Chug Challenge”

According to this post on InterroBang, the Killer Cobra Challenge is where a person drinks three tallboys of King Cobra Beer Malt liquor in a row (which is both dumb and gross). It showed up in 2014 online, and appears to have re-emerged in 2017 with this video:

You’ll notice the guys in the video are vomiting, falling into everything and generally f’d–it’s because they’re suffering from symptoms of alcohol poisoning.

 

 

Drink Responsibly. Don’t do the Killer King Cobra Challenge

It’s seriously dumb and potentially dangerous…

 

If you crunch the numbers, a tall boy is 750ml/24oz; three tall boys would be around 2 liters; that’s equivalent to about 6 cans of beer (or a 6-pack); at 6% abv you’re looking at consuming around 135ml of pure alcohol (which is about 4.5 oz) in…20 minues???

According to multiple resources online about 0.3-0.45% blood alcohol level can be fatal which can occur from around 15 shots in a 3-4 hour period (a total of about 6oz of pure alcohol).

Chugging 3 tall boys puts you very quickly into the lethal/dangerous zone for alcohol poisoning.

So don’t do the Killer/King Cobra challenge…because again, it’s dumb and potentially dangerous.

 

 

Drinking can be fun — but let’s be smart about it.
