'Impractical Jokers' offer tips to improve your football tailgating parties
One tailgate is great, but when you have multiple tailgates combine to make one big block party –- things get even better. Gillette Clear Gel engaged two guys who are known for being the life of the party and can talk to, well, just about anyone –- James Murray and Joe Gatto, of 'Impractical Jokers.'
There are four main tips to approach the bro next to you and take your tailgate from good to awesome:
Call next: See a good game of corn-hole or can jam going, but not sure how to get in on it? Walk over and clearly call next – the token phrase to get you in on the festivities. While you wait, feel free to pick a side and trash talk.

Lead with desirable food: Plan in advance. Be the group that comes in with the food everyone wants, but doesn't want to take the time to prep (i.e. ribs, steaks, hot wings) and offer some up to the group next to you. And to make sure they take it, even offer to feed them.
Break the ice, with more ice: There is nothing worse than a warm beverage. Be the guy who saves the day by bringing an extra cooler filled with ice. When you're neighbors run out, offer to let them have some of yours.
Spread the team cheer: Pride can be seen a mile away and fans are always down for a little team spirit. Start your team's respective chant and get the crowd going, not to mention your neighbors involved.
Bring some extra seats: You can't invite people to come on over and hang out without enough chairs. Bring a few extra folding chairs and keep them in the trunk. If you notice your neighbors are out of space, invite them over to have a seat.
Give out nicknames: Nothing makes people feel like friends faster than a good nickname. Ain't that right Beer Cozy Barry? I mean that's what Tall Steven says all the time, and we know he's right 100% of the time.No more worrying about who the initiator should be. No more sweating the delivery. Gillette Clear gel is here to give you the confidence to say, "You got this" during any tailgate situation.
Oh, and here's what NOT to do:
"Don't come empty handed," according to the guys. "It's like a potluck. You can't go empty handed to a potluck. Don't be the guy that comes empty handed to a pot luck tailgate party. Don't come with a poor attitude. Don't forget to bring enough plastic forks. Don't forget a football."
