    That was funny, but it does look a bit staged.

    Agreed, I also doubt the authenticity of it.

    (here is one without captions)

    10 CCTV minutes well spent. Sad and hilarious at the same time. I'd like to see him (try to) cross a street.

    It reminds me of the ether scene from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

    I thought that he was on something stronger than booze. He looks too out of it, more like he's taken horse tranquilizers.

    Sure, he's drunk.

    As a law enforcement officer, I've seen many people very drunk at 10 AM. Usually they are people that work the 11 PM to 7 AM shift. 7 AM to 10 AM is their evening before they go to sleep. They drink just like most other drunks do from 7 to 10 PM.

    Funny. But I sure do hate running into people that are this drunk

    Oh I do think it's a lot more than alcohol causing him to wobble about like that. If he doesn't have some sort of severe head injury or a middle ear infection, he's on drugs. Or he's been washing his prescriptions down with booze. If I had to guess: he's been huffing some Ether. It's his mental persistence and quasi-alertness in spite of physical inability that leads me to believe it's not alcohol (or not only alcohol). Someone who is severely drunk just moves/behaves differently.
