Turns out “Drunk in Love” is more than just a lusty collab track by Jay-Z and Beyoncé.
In fact, a medicine and biomedical engineer recently took to TikTok explaining why getting a little wasted boosts the beauty of basic barfly faces.
“Alcohol is absolutely amazing,” leading science commentator Dr. Karl Kruszelnicki said in a now-viral info-vid shared to his verified TikTok account.
“It can strip oil stains off a garage floor, but it can also change your human perception of reality,” the Australian scholar continued.
Kruszelnicki, a one-time NASA astronaut hopeful-turned-social-media superstar, pointed to a scientific study on the effects alcohol had on the perception of heterosexual college kids. The research, conducted in 2003, sought to determine how booze reshaped their sexual attraction.
“When it came to rating the attractiveness of other people, women found men a bit more attractive, but men found women a whole lot more attractive,” Kruszelnicki said in his post, which has amassed nearly 400,000 views.
“They called this an increase in the ‘Facial Attractiveness Index,’ ” he said. “And the rest of us call it ‘beer goggles.’ “
Toasting Kruszelnicki for his intoxicating science update, fans flooded his comments with buzzy banter about vague vodka vision and wobbly wine wisdom.
