When the Hong Kong Rugby Sevens comes around, run for cover. Stay away from pubs and any other gathering of rugby enthusiasts, unless you want to partake in one of the world’s most intemperate bacchanals. Considered the foremost rugby sevens tournament, this event annually soaks Hong Kong in alcohol and sports-bar extravaganza. Just last year, Kim Jong Un (ok, his look alike) was spotted getting wasted and making out with 30 to 40 girls at the 2015 Rugby Sevens.

One of the victims of this year’s installment was reportedly found in a urinal, his final resting place after the night’s many twists and turns.

Well, maybe. After Coconuts Hong Kong posted it, many netizens cast doubt on its authenticity as well as its origin. Sleuthing Redditors suggested that the photo may actually be of a hardcore partygoing college student in the US. Contact Coconuts if you have any additional information on this casualty of the binge.

In the end, authentic or not, this picture was still hailed for truly expressing the spirit of Hong Kong's Rugby Sevens, and in that way, it’s perhaps the most accurate we can get.
