From pickled prunes to sheep eyeballs, drunks worldwide have concocted some pretty crazy cures for hangovers. America continues this proud tradition with Hangover Heaven, a Las Vegas-based company that promises to cure the negative side effects of too much drinking. In a bus!
The process is simple. For as low as $90, a team of alcoholic angels will insert an IV, pump you full of hydrating goodness, and presto, your hangover will be a thing of the past. It's like a boozy Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind -- or as the website analogizes:
Imagine we’re Kevin MacCallister and your hangover is his family. We make them disappear.
Right. Starting April 14, Hangover Heaven's movable fleet of buses will be found parked outside Las Vegas hotspots, including Hard Rock Hotel, Paris, Bellagio and The Cosmopolitan, and will offer their services on-board or in-room.
The company was founded by Dr. Jason Burke, an anesthesiologist trained at Duke University. (Did he treat Tucker Max there?) Sick and tired of hangovers himself, the good doctor decided to create a service specifically for the over-served vacationers of Las Vegas:
I can take you from a semi-conscious, porcelain-hugging, hit-by-a-truck hangover to feeling like you’re ready to take on the world in less than 45 minutes. I think this is a major development in medicine and solves a significant problem for people that like to party and have a good time.
What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas -- including hangovers! Just don't drink too much, the company cautions:
Alcohol overdose can kill you and Hangover Heaven cannot reverse death.
Ah, well. I hope they serve beer in Hangover hell! For more information, go HERE.
