This viral video inspired that crazy drug scene in The Wolf of Wall Street

It all makes so much sense now.

IF YOU’VE SEEN The Wolf of Wall Street you will be familiar with the scene in which Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill’s characters take a lot of drugs, and entirely lose the ability to move like normal people.

Now, DiCaprio has revealed that the inspiration for his performance of that scene came from a viral video of a man trying to get a pack of beer, which has been watched millions of times since it was posted online in 2009.

He told NineMSN,

A lot of the research that I did really came from watching this one video on loop.It’s not just the fact that he was sort of elasticated and trying to get [up], it was his motivation that was really intriguing. He had one singular goal, one that was to get a beer out of the 7-Eleven, and it took him a half an hour.

If you’ve seen it before, it makes perfect sense, if you haven’t, feast your eyes below.
