Learn how to win a bar bet with the hat trick in this Howcast video.
Simon: Peter, my friend. You look like you’re ready for another drink.
Peter: I am. I can totally use one.
Simon: But I’d like to give you a little betcha, if you don’t mind.
Peter: No, I don’t mind.
Simon: This is fun, because if I lose the bet, you win. And I’ll pay for your drink.
Peter: Sounds good to me.
Simon: But if you lose, you buy me a drink. How’s that?
Peter: Okay. Fair enough.
Simon: We’re going to go for a… do you like tequila?
Peter: Sure. I love tequila.
Simon: I do, too. Gina my wee darling, can we get a tequila over here? Peter’s paying for it.
Peter: We’ll see. We’ll see.
Simon: We’ll see.
Peter: Yeah. We’ll see.
Simon: It’s only fair, so far.
Peter: Okay. Yeah. Sounds good.
Simon: Thank you, darling.
Peter: Nice. Thank you.
Simon: Nice tequila there. Here’s our little betcha, Peter.
Simon: I’m going to cover that tequila with your hat.
Simon: And I’m prepared to bet you, my friend, that I can drink that tequila without touching the hat. That’s a pretty cool bet.
Peter: All right.
Simon: Now think about this. If I can do it, you’ll learn it. And you can do it on all of your friends too and all it’s cost you is a tequila.
Peter: Sounds fair.
Simon: All righty. The bet’s on.
Peter: The bet’s on.
Simon: Pony up some money. Are you sure you got it on you?
Simon: And you’re prepared to pay for the drink?
Simon: Okay. I’ll trust you.
Simon: Just the once.
Peter: I got it.
Simon: Normally, I want the money on the bar.
Peter: Okay, I got it here.
Simon: But I’ll trust you. You ready?
Peter: I’m ready.
Simon: Here we go.
Peter: Show me your magic.
Simon: That’s a very good tequila. I just drank the tequila without touching the hat.
Peter: I don’t believe you. Should I lift it up?
Jillian: Take it off?
Simon: You can check it, if you want.
Simon: I’ve just drunk the tequila. I didn’t touch the hat. You touched the hat. Do you want to go for another one?
Peter: All right.
Simon: All righty. Gina, my wee darling.
Peter: Wow. You tricked me.
Simon: I did. I’m a sneaky little devil.
Peter: You got me. I should have seen that one coming.
Simon: Thank you, darling. By the way, you know you already owe me another tequila? Because the tequila you bought wasn’t the bet, so I’m a tequila up.
Peter: Okay. All right.
Simon: But here’s the deal on this tequila. I’m going to bet you. Now you know how I did it the first time.
Simon: You’re way ahead of the game.
Peter: Yeah, very sneaky.
Simon: I’m going to bet you a dollar, even though you know the bet, that I can drink that tequila without touching the hat.
Peter: Without touching the hat?
Simon: No touching the hat. No straws. No nothing. I can drink that tequila without touching the hat, for a dollar.
Peter: You won’t just lift it up and then drink it again?
Jillian: Or have you lift it up.
Peter: Or have me lift it up. Okay, sounds fair. Sounds good.
Jillian: You lifted the hat up.
Simon: I did. I owe you a dollar. And that, my friends, is how you get three drinks for a dollar.
Peter: Very nice.
Simon: And I keep your hat.
