At the show at Austin venue Emo's, Burkett, performing acoustically as his disturbing alter ego Cokie the Clown, came out with a bottle of Patron tequila and served up shots for himself and the audience. After a bizarre set in which Burkett told unsettling stories about suicide, rape and bondage, the singer played a video that showed him urinating in the bottle of tequila then bringing it onstage.
In the ensuing fallout, Burkett was banned from Emo's and authorities were looking into the incident. For his part, Burkett played up the veracity of the video, saying in subsequent interviews that it was all real and that he had looked into the legality of serving urine. But this week, the punk icon posted a video on YouTube that reveals he switched out the bodily fluid-enhanced bottle for a clean one. The clip, which blurs Burkett's offending instrument but is still extremely NSFW, ends with one simple message for fans, haters and press alike: "SUCKERS." Looks like there's egg on all our faces, which isn't so bad, considering the substances involved.
