Physical bars, pubs and other drinking venues may be temporarily closed but people are coming together remotely thanks to events like the Asahi Online Virtual Bar. Asahi recently hosted an online drinking party that virtually united 1,000 people, including comedians and celebrities from Japan.
Those who got to participate in the Asahi Online Virtual Bar were chosen thanks to a lottery system and they had the chance to collectively raise their cans of Asahi Super Dry for a toast. As the online event was populated by a great turnout, all but four microphones were muted so that the celebrity hosts could keep the conversation flowing. Attendees also got to learn how to skillfully pour a can of beer into a glass, take a quiz, recreate a popular Asahi Super Dry and change their wallpaper. Soon, another Asahi Online Virtual Bar event will be held for another 1,000 people.
