How to use paper to open a beer bottle


Rhys Morgan, who is a student as Cardiff University uploaded the video onto YouTube last week, and it has since been viewed more than a million times.

"I learnt the trick during the summer," Morgan told the Daily Mail.

'I was at a garden party with, tragically, a broken bottle opener'

"I was at a garden party with, tragically, a broken bottle opener.

"We needed to create some kind of bottle opener, and I thought that strengthening a sheet of paper by folding it could help it act as a lever to pry the top off!"

The 21-year old student insists his video is legit after some viewers questioned the clip. He hit back saying the paper is standard printing paper and the beer bottle is not a twist-able one.

"Fold the paper in half vertically until you end up with only a small amount of paper left.

"Fold this remaining paper lengthways to create a 'V' shape from the paper.

"Put the 'V' of the paper against the underside of the bottle cap and apply pressure.”
