A few defiant Vegas concertgoers refused to duck, shot crazed gunman the bird and finished their beers

Is it the power of alcohol or the enduring American spirit?

…maybe a little bit of both

As bullets rained down on the crowd attending the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival next to the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, terrified concertgoers crouch down, unaware that this provided them no protection from a madman firing from the 32nd floor of the hotel.

And amid the carnage, with bullets flying all around, a defiant concertgoer holding a 25-ounce Bud Light tallboy is captured on video flipping off the gunman:

The dramatic video captures just how surreal it is when a gunman opens fire on folks out for a good time, who then try to grasp what the hell is happening — an all-too-slow occurrence as people are dying all around.

An even more stunning video captured an equally defiant man offering himself up as a sacrifice as people around him dive for cover, daring the crazed killer to shoot him.


But again, there’s a reason alcohol is called “liquid courage.” And the next video shows just how precious a beer can be for some.

A man is captured about 15 seconds in balancing a full beer precariously as people drop all around him from the gunfire.
