The Keith Urban Drinking Game

Here at Urban Myths we are known to indulge in a favorite beverage or two.. why not combine two of our favorite things…

Announcing: The Keith Urban Drinking Game

That's right! Celebrate Keith Urban and his waxing poetically about his life and new CD by tipping a few back.

Here is how it works....

Take any interview that Keith has done for the new CD and look for the following phrases. If those phrases are in the article follow the instructions.

Joyful / Joyous - take a sip.

Harmony - another sip

Balanced - down the glass

It seems that there is theme that KU/NK would like you to remember- we think it’s better to drink and forget.

Happy April Fool’s Day from Urban Myths!

Ha! Good one Urban Myths...people should really get a good buzz with this game...but actually its too bad since I'm not a drinker! But "dang nabit" I want in...so being a "caffein hound"... I'll simply substitute gourmet coffee brands and get a "high" that way...I may even give in and get a coffee from Starbucks...which a cup of would cost more than the orbs next cd...well at Amazon anyways...sure it's just for "promotion" right? As I pointed to yesterday...little sunri is now on the orbs promo talking points...all on behalf of his new cd...and again...that would be another word for the drinking game...daughter.

I wanna play too maclen! This could get us a caffeine high rather quickly, we may need more than one Starbucks cup.

Yeah, just checked out the clip on youtube...Hilarious! First words out of the orbs mouth...quote..."Wow...what are you giving these people?" It seems
ellens audience are not the only one's suspiciously "on" something. Also, if you watch as he attempts to sit...he seems to gingerly pause as he sits... then drops onto the chair rather "tipsy" for sure. So I guess while kidman is away, the orb will play...

Ha...considering Anna's description of the orb on ellen, banbotox, we really need to watch those coffee brands for sure...I mean...we need to make sure no one slips in any of that "Columbian" coffee...the orb seems to be balancing that sobriety as it is!

Can we stop? I can't sit down, I'm jumpy and my head is starting to hurt. I couldn't sleep last night, and I've almost gone through 2lbs of the Columbia Starbucks I bought with my birthday money, I have to go to the big city to buy it and gas is expensive, I have to work tomorrow and I have to get some sleep tonight if I 'm going to be able to pull this off. how long is this game going to go on, will someone please let me know when I can stop

So, apparently, the orb's new cd is battling for the top spot this week...

Prince and Keith Urban Battle for Number One on the Charts

...yeah...against Prince...who was big...in 1984! Prince, who lately has been basically selling his cd "out of the back of his car trunk"...(ie: his own website and without major studio backing)...and evidently, Prince's cd is selling only in Target stores? So, basically, the orb may outsell Target... to wit, quote..."However, Keith Urban isn’t leashed to an exclusive deal with Target like Prince is, making Defying Gravity more widely available. Plus, the amount of copies purchased via membership to Prince’s newly launched LOtUSFLOW3R Website likely won’t be included in his final tally." 150-160k cd sold for a week may get a #1 for the week...but that seems like the low end of weekly sales, and may be "momentarily satisfying" but I'll wait for the total picture... and see how many cds of the orb will ultimately sell...again will it reach the about 500k of his GHits cd? Or the 1.5mil of his crazy love cd? or the 3 mil of Be Here of 5 whole years ago. That is the true barometer. But if Prince does beat out the orb for the top spot, despite princes handicaps, this week...it will no doubt be a blow to the orbs dwindling returns.

Well.....actually hoosier....we neglected to actually set up a starting time....yet! So....OK! START NOW! Naw, just kidding HA! I'm basically already hopped up on caffeine, I wouldnt tell the difference... but based on URban Myths criteria for the achohol game..I'm wondering how those poor souls are doing with the original version? Are you guys feeling as "groovy" as the orb was apparently feeling on Ellen yesterday? Hey, a thought just occurred to me, perhaps the orb read Urban myths drinking game post and decided to participate! Sadly, the orb would no doubt win it all...he's become a "rehab" authenticated pro at it...

maclen...I have FINALLY come down off my caffeine high-don't know if I can do that game again-the palpitations were rather fierce!!

Any numbers on sales? I think Keith was stacking the deck a bit...download on Amazon for $4.99.

Yeah, banbotox...basically using any glutonous substance for the orb new PR tactics "drinking game"...will give you palpitations...a hangover...heartburn. As for the cd sales race, as I mentioned earlier...despite that online discount, the orb is still struggling to outsell Target stores!
