Pub Landlord Takes A Shower In Gone-Off Beer
With everyone finding new and creative ways to amuse themselves while we all make sure to keep away from each other to stop the spread of coronavirus, people's activities are getting weirder by the day. Take this guy from Derbyshire, who found an unexpected use for his leftover booze:
One pub landlord decided to entertain his customers, as well as get rid of leftover expired beer due to his pub being closed, by showering in the stuff.
Pub manager Rob Lindsey, 33, has been left with gallons of gone-off booze due to the coronavirus lockdown, which has forced him to shut up shop.
When a barrel of his craft ale went out of date, Rob decided to 'give everyone a laugh' by drenching himself in its contents. I feel like you would have to be there to appreciate how bad the smell would surely have been.
In a video that he took himself and posted to his punters on social media, the trader can be seen standing over the keg and releasing the valve.
A powerful shot of liquid then shoots around 15ft into the air before Rob proceeds to stick his head in the way and beings scrubbing himself.

The married dad-of-one said: "I always have to return the barrels empty for them to be reused so I thought I might as well have a bit of fun.
"The idea was just to give my customers a bit of a laugh, which I thought they could do with at a time like this."
He added: "It didn't feel great to be honest and I absolutely stunk afterwards. I jumped straight in the shower and got some dry clothes on."
Rob is landlord of The Talbot Taphouse in Ripley, Derbyshire.
Meanwhile, people are really missing their favourite pubs - so much so that someone has created a virtual version. Just 'cause we're all confined to our own homes, doesn't mean the art of chatting s***e to a random over a bevvy is dead.
Emily Huyton has founded The Corona Arms, a virtual pub where you can break up the monotony of quarantine with a drink or two (or more).
