The deadly game continues.

With 3 suspected deaths from the #NekNomination craze in Britain alone, you would think that people would be a little more hesitant to down 2 pints of gin, or a bottle of vodka?

British salesman Bradley Eames is the latest in suspected deaths resulting from the deadly game.

He filmed himself downing 2 pints of gin (stopping halfway through the first one to gag) and later posted on his social media streams complaining of an upset stomach. Four days later he was dead.
