To the pedestrian boozers and users, the reactions to the punch sipped in Way Yes' "Automail" video might seem baffling. But the IMPOSE staff is quite familiar with such psychedelic concoctions. The recipe is concentrated Hawaiian punch mix (powder works too), pure grain vodka (bath tub brewed white lightening is the best, but everclear will suffice) and two to three teaspoons of blotter acid. Stir and serve with caution.
The video for "Automail" recalls the classic Hunter S. Thompson article on the Kentucky Derby, but replace well bred racing horses rounding hallowed Kentucky grounds with plastic frogs being dragged across a wooden plank. Still, it's not about the race – and never is – but about downing punch and mint julips until vomit trails stain your seersucker suit.
