Angels in Plastic Cups – Beer Pong Heroics at Olivet University


This is a video compilation of one miracle beer pong shot after another by students at Olivet University in Illinois.

The beer pongers are Matt Compton, Steve Olson, David Anderson and Michael Schimp, and their beer pong antics have made it all the way to an obscure page on Sport Illustrated’s website.

Reactions to the video are mixed but give a better idea of Olivet’s relevance in the world. Here are a couple:

Snewton85: i just have to say that video is one of the sexiest things i’ve ever seen.

Arthur67: “Seven years of college down the F-ing drain.”

Conrail4me: As an Olivet grad this makes me proud! Who says cool things can’t happen in the bubble. Even physics seemingly don’t apply. Way to go!

Ultraducharme: This is how we got humans on the moon. The triumph of the will.

UtubeSoDol: as an olivet grad i love the fact that you guys waste as much time doing awesome pointless stuff, EITHER for real or (as a graphic design/video major that I was) so really cool video effects and creativity! either way freakin sweet!

    wow .. is that for real??? it looked pretty real up until the guy is eating popcorn and blows a ball out of his mouth across the room and into the cup.

    I agree, the one shooting out of his mouth looked a little “funny”, but the others looked pretty real. If this is for real, bow to the masters, people.

    I see a lot of ping pong ball throwing but not a lot of beer drinking … I have to say, I’m not as impressed as I would have been if they’d chugged as many times as they tossed …

    Actually, Olivet is located in Bourbonnais, Illinois. It’s an hour south of Chicago.

    Where did you come up with San Francisco???
