An open beer compilation video from ClipNationDotCom is making the rounds to answer all your pesky questions about how you can use common household items like cockatoos, shotguns, and just about anything in your garage workshop to open a beer. Doesn’t matter if it’s bottled or canned. They’ll get it open in a variety of funny, dangerous, and ridiculous ways.
For some reason, my parrots responded by giving me the hairy eyeball when I asked them to give it a try and open a can of beer. In fact, I’m pretty sure I heard a distinct snicker from my yellow-fronted Amazon, who is an experienced mimic of human laughter.
And I don’t think I’ll be using my rock saw or my overpriced diamond grinding wheels to pop the top on any beer bottles any time soon either.
But the guys in this video are willing to do whatever it takes to open a beer, whether it involves blasting the cap off the bottle with a rifle or simply nagging the nearest blue and gold macaw to put her beak into gear.
I don’t think that’s a traditional Irish drinking song but, then again, heh. Maybe it is. Depends on what you consider traditional — the sountrack is “Drink With Me” by the Arrogant Worms.
The open beer compilation video isn’t the first video inspired by the drinking song, and it probably won’t be the last. But it’s admittedly one of the most hilarious. A search of YouTube will find more if you just haven’t had enough.
So, the next time you have a blue and gold macaw hanging around the house, why not ask the bird to open your beer? But don’t blame me if the macaw laughs in your face.
Blame the makers of this hilarious open beer compilation video.
