How A Viral Video Helped Leonardo DiCaprio Nail His Funniest Scene Ever

How A Viral Video Helped Leonardo DiCaprio Nail His Funniest Scene Ever

Today is Leonardo DiCaprio's birthday, so I thought it was the perfect time to throw back to the best scene from his best film. And it IS his best film, we'll have no arguments here.

The Quaaludes binge scene is definitely the funniest and most bizarre in the 'Wolf of Wall Street' - and it's got a lot of competition. Leo nailed this, no questions. And what would you expect? The guy is an acting genius. If you're wondering how he nailed, well, he got a bit of help there...

Leo actually sat down and talked about what it was like to take Quaaludes to excess with the real-life Jordan Belfort.

But speaking in a press conference before the film was released, Leo said that the bulk of his research actually came from watching the viral YouTube hit, 'Drunkest Guy in the World'.

He said: "A lot of the research that I did really came from watching this one video on loop. It's called 'The Drunkest Guy in the World'. It's a man trying to get a beer, but his body doesn't quite work. That was a huge inspiration to me."

In case you've forgotten the video in question, here it is:

That is some dedication to Budweiser. I hope he got a job in their advertising department after this. I'm with Leo, tbf, I think this guy is a huge inspiration to all of us.

And, in case you were wondering what they were snorting in the film, it was vitamin D. In Jonah Hill's case, so much vitamin D powder that he ended up in hospital with bronchitis.
