Did you know that your phone behavior changes when you go from sober to drunk?

BuzzFeedVideo cast Nick Ross and Amy Vorpahl in this short, slightly witty YouTube video explanation of how we communicate via various apps—and how that communication changes after a few drinks. For example, your sober self may approach Tinder with a judgmental eye, while drunk, lonely you may swipe right on each and every profile you come across.

Doesn’t that video make you want to pop open some cold ones and jump right into an ongoing political discussion on Facebook?!
