New Year's Eve FAILS (VIDEO)

Before we make our New Year's resolutions, perhaps it's wise to make a few New Year's Eve resolutions.

For example, we resolve not to say anything incriminating on live television, sing Backstreet Boys, set our neighborhood on fire or make Grandma drink jello shots. If we adhere to those simple tenets, we might make it through our NYE parties alive.

Of course, there are always people who, oh, let's say, FAILED to make those important promises to themselves. So in honor of their shame, we're taking a look back at a few of the anti-heroes of New Year's Eves past. May we learn from their mistakes.
