So is that (part of) the answer? Or are you just being obnoxious?

Could it have been another alcoholic beverage? or even a non alcoholic beverage?

Was a person involved in this puzzle? more than one?

Did the champagne have a negative effect? positive?

Could it have been another alcoholic beverage? or even a non alcoholic beverage? it could have been either, instead or as well, but champagne is by far the most likely

Was a person involved in this puzzle? no more than one?

Did the champagne have a negative effect? positive? this one

So there is more than one piece of electronic equipment involved? Computers? televisions? other audiovisual equipment? Were the pieces of electronic equipment the ones doing the celebrating?

Was this celebration a holiday that humans also celebrate? Was it a birthday party? Was it a celebration of an achievement of someone or something?

Had one of them just gotten a PhD?

Are these pieces of electronic equipment all of the same type? Are they the sort of equipment that might be found in someone's home? Or are they only used in specialist environments? like research labs? or hospitals?

It's Friday afternoon again, so this puzzle can now be revived. :)

Mobile phones? other communications-related equipment? other portable equipment?

Did one or more of these pieces of equipment start malfunctioning? or cease to function at all? or start behaving strangely?

Mobile phones? no other communications-related equipment? yes, for somewhat vv of "communications" other portable equipment? no

Did one or more of these pieces of equipment start malfunctioning? no or cease to function at all? no or start behaving strangely? well, yes, but this may perhaps be misleading
