Inhalt

After the confirmation ceremony, the confirmee and his godfather start to drink heavily. They incidentally stumble into a posh wine bar where they do not fit in properly. By accident, they knock over a table and are treated in an unfriendly manner by the snobbish waitress. Then, the godfather orders an Emmentaler that at the bar runs under the name of Affentaler and is served as a whole bottle. Thus, they have to drink the whole bottle of liquor. While the confirmee has to visit the restroom after feeling sick from smoking a cigarette, the godfather is heckling the other customers at the bar. In the end, both of them get kicked out of the wine bar.
