2014 Man of the Year: Will Williams

Lesser men would have thrown up instantly. But Will Williams is not a lesser man.

"I was pretty much instantly hammered," he said after impressing the world by downing a bottle of Jack Daniels in 15 seconds in August. "I carried on and stayed out until 3 a.m. the following morning. My mates were astonished."

There was dispute over just how fast the Welshman was able to guzzle the bottle. 10 seconds? 13 seconds? 15 seconds?

The Washington Free Beacon has determined that Williams drank the bottle in 14.3 seconds.

Williams received many adoring fans, marriage proposals, and plenty of compliments on his beard. His YouTube video, which now has 2.8 million views, appeared with the caption, "Whiskey, like a beautiful woman, demands appreciation. You gaze first, then it's time to drink!"

It’s easy to see why Williams went viral instead of this guy. Or this guy.

Williams has since said he regrets downing the bottle, but regrets are for suckers.
