We’ve all been there - you’re drunk and want to buy someone thousands of miles away pizza…ok, none of us have ever done that.

For Daniel Sobey-Harker this impulse left his bank account just that little bit smaller following a few sozzled mistakes.

After trying to buy a pizza for someone in the States - he became frustrated by an inability to pay for said takeaway resorting to the controversial online currency of Bitcoin.

Mr Sobey-Harker judgement had been ever so slightly impaired by ‘getting through nine beers’ leaving him a ‘tad merry’ resulting in him buying two Bitcoin worth around £300.

As a result he posted this on Reddit: ‘Can someone help me (UK) buy a pizza for someone in the U.S? I’ll reward whoever can get me a method that works.

’Are you in the States? Do you want Pizza? Talk to me. May have gone overboard with Bitcoins.

‘Like I bought two to make sure it worked and it turned out that’s like $550 [USD]. Gotta be Papa John’s tho as they’re the easiest to sort out.

‘If you want a pizza write in a comment in this thread why you want one. I’m not very eloquent right now but there’s about $160-170 [USD] worth going.’

After getting hold of 30 pizzas and receiving 1,200 notifications - Daniel had pizzas delivered to Chicago, Hawaii, and even one lucky user in the UK, which led to him being labelled the ‘Jesus of the Internet’.

One happy user wrote: ‘Trashed and giving out pizzas is the best kind of person.’
