Making Mealtime Meaningful: Discover how we're giving back with the 12T Cares program →

Matt Benedetto with Unnecessary Inventions recently launched a brilliant invention: the Hookshot.

The Hookshot is a handy coat hook that pours a shot every time a coat is hung.

How it works is, once a coat is placed on the hook, the weight will force it downwards which triggers the shot to pop up and pour into a pre-placed glass.

“The HookShot™. Hang your jacket and rip a shot. When you get home from a long day you can finally relax the moment you put your coat away. This invention swiftly flips a shot of your favorite alcohol as your coat pulls down upon the hook. I find myself taking my coat off a lot these days,” the description reads.

While the invention was intended to be funny and not super serious, we’re only hoping that someone decides to create a real coat hook/shot pouring mechanism. As a wise man once said, it has to be 5 o’clock somewhere.
