Vince Neil has once again become a YouTube sensation or punch line depending on your viewpoint. This week Neil sang the National Anthem at a Las Vegas Outlaws inaugural football game. (Special guest surprise at 7:35…)

0:10 Less than 100 people there for introductions, just saying.
0:35 I expected more from Las Vegas, I mean, these are strippers, right?
1:02 Smoke machine and very bored camera man.
1:20 Same strippers or new ones on the back of the motorcycles? This is very confusing.
2:23 Back flips, this is definitely a case of let’s throw a lot of shit at the wall and see what sticks. Complete chaos…
2:32 Vince Neil enters the arena, blue cup in hand. Oh no…
3:54 Vince is introduced last; thankfully he puts down his blue cup before running through the chaos.
3:56 Out of breath…
4:19 Brief seizure from camera work.
4:21 I’m back…
5:18 “Here We Go…” I’m half expecting Vince to sing “Take Me Out To The Ball Game…” Actually, I’m really hoping…
5:20 Nope, he’s singing the National Anthem
6:18 Okay, it’s over. Quick thoughts: That was awful, but most of us know it could have been worse. Vince could have REALLY tried to sing this song. Most Shocking: He didn’t do the Vince Neil patented “Let the audience fill in every other word.”
6:19 Still, thinking blue cup was a factor…
7:04 Vince almost fumbles the ball.
7:35 Is that? NOOOO! Fucking Carrot Top with a big coin for the flip.
(Note video jumps around after this from strippers to football plays back to strippers.)
11:36 The strippers have kicked up their moves, lots of grinding. Could be naked by the end of the game, fingers crossed.
12:19 I’m not exactly sure what is about to happen, but I’m describing it as “Ass Jazz.”
13:10 I can’t take my eyes off this train wreck. Holy shit, whoever said “You know what, fuck rehearsal” should lose their job.
14:00 Play me some Ass Jazz please!
14:30 Phenomenal dance moves!
15:00 Answer: 14 Beers
15:01 Question: How many beers would it take to stay until the end of this event?
15:02 Just kidding, this is way better than any comedy show playing on The Strip right now in Vegas…
