Funny you mention that, Tom Naughton also used the same clip in his article addressing it:I can buy it but are you sure you arent confusing it with the Whitest Kids You Know sketch, or was that sketch prophetic?
About when did it come out?
Here's the BBC article this is all taken from, dated December 2017. The focus is on Spurlock admitting to being a sexual harasser but the alcoholism is admitted to directly a little ways in:
"I haven't been sober for more than a week in 30 years, something our society doesn't shun or condemn but which only served to fill the emotional hole inside me and the daily depression I coped with," he wrote.
I must've gotten confused somewhere because the article doesn't go as far as saying Spurlock was a bottle of whiskey a day type of drunk, but getting drunk at least once a week (probably more than once if we're honest) for 30ish years is probably going to build up a strong resistance to booze. Everything in Supersize Me about his liver is consistent with heavy alcohol use, even though he said "none" in the documentary when his doctor was examining him. I suppose its not out of the question to assume he was exaggerating about not being sober for more than a few days in 30 years, but that tanks his credibility either way.
