A drugged-out sequence in The Wolf of Wall Street involves Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill's characters taking one too many Quaaludes (a sedative-hypnotic drug) and dealing with the dopey consequences.

But it wasn't all just Leo's genius improv comedy that made the scene. The 39-year-old confessed at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival that a YouTube clip of a drunk dude helped him to get into character. Watch the inspirational clip that's had almost four million hits on YouTube since 2009 above!

"A lot of the research that I did really came from watching this one video on loop," he said. "It's called 'The Drunkest [Guy] in the World'. It's a man trying to get a beer, but his body doesn't quite [work]. That was a huge inspiration to me.

"It's not just the fact that he was sort of elasticated and trying to get [up], it was his motivation that was really intriguing. He had one singular goal, one that was to get a beer out of the 7-Eleven, and it took him a half an hour."

Watch Leo's Wolf of Wall Street drugged-out scene inspired by the "Drunkest Man" in the video below…

The Wolf of Wall Street is out now in Australian cinemas. Check out the trailer in the 2014 Best Picture Oscar nominees video gallery below and vote 'want to see' or 'not interested' on MovieBuzz here!
