Slayer/Anthrax Fan Booted From Concert, Attempted To Swim Back Gets Immortalized On Beer CanShare on
If at first you don’t succeed, maybe you’ll get on a beer can.
Chris LaRocque went viral last year after he attempted to swim back to a Slayer concert at Toronto’s Budweiser Stage. LaRocque was booted for being too drunk.
His efforts did not go unnoticed, and now, Budweiser has added a drawing of the dedicated fan to a can marking 25 years since the venue opened.
“I wonder if I can get free beer?,” he wrote on Facebook.
Security initially removed LaRocque during opening act Anthrax’s set. Band member Scott Ian captured LaRocque’s attempt to swim back into the Budweiser Stage, where parts are separated by Lake Ontario.
“I was a little inebriated, not like fall-down drunk or nothing, but I was feeling pretty good,” he told Exclaim! at the time. “I was worried about getting my junk in the water and freezing.”
He was later offered free tickets to the London, ON show.
Head to the venue and grab your Budweiser can of the iconic moment before it’s too late!
