Flying solo tonight and looking for an excuse to get wasted? A Korean inventor has you covered.

Meet Dinky: the robot who is always down to drink with you, unlike your lame friends who are celebrating #DryJanuary. Created by Eunchan Park as a remedy to the lonely nights where he drank alone, this robot will revolutionize alcoholism as we know it. After all, it’s much more socially acceptable to drink with a friend than all by yourself.

Here’s how Eunchan came up with the idea: 

“On Christmas in 2012, I drank Soju (Korean alcohol) alone because I had no girlfriend at that time. Drinking alone was definitely terrible!! so I couldn’t drink anymore. Lastly, I put an extra glass in front of me and poured Soju into it. And then, I cheered by myself with the glass of Soju, as though there was someone in front of me. Surprisingly, after that, the taste became totally to be changed!!!!!! WOW!!! So, I could finally find the secret of taste of alcohol totally depends on existence of partner. This is why I made this robot.”

With the help of Art Center Nabi, a Korean museum, Dinky was born.

Not only will this robot be there for you when you need him most, he’ll also knock back a few shots with you. The robot’s appearance mimics an actual person, with cheeks that glow red each time he drinks. He can also nod, shake its head, and give you a thumbs up.

The best part? The robot won’t ever spill his drink. According to Motherboard, the alcohol is collected in its glass jar body, so technically that means more booze for you.
