Smash is back, people! We repeat, Smash is back!
On a more professional note: season two of the NBC musical hit premieres tonight with a two-hour event, and we are celebrating the only way we know how. We love this show, we love to drink while watching TV shows, so do we have any other choice then to combine those two things?
Below you will find some rules for the Smash drinking game, or Getting Smashed, as we shall henceforth refer to it as. It's simple: open your beverage of choice and take a sip whenever any of these things happen. We recommend not taking straight shots of liquor, as you will definitely vomit and/or die.
