‘Billie Jean’ On Beer Bottles: Watch The Bottle Boys Perform
As you can see, the video is an actual delight.
The Bottle Boys are a band, and they play on bottles. That’s pretty much their whole schtick. But they do it well! This isn’t the only classic they’ve covered using only bottles — they’ve also covered “Walking On Sunshine” by Katrina And The Waves, which you can watch here, unless you hate joy. I don’t know your life.
The Bottle Boys received huge recognition for their cover of “Billie Jean” after it appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on June 2. They’ve also been interviewed by the NY Daily News, where they told the outlet that they started their band at a “really boring” college party that they decided to liven up by playing music with all the nearby empties.
The Bottle Boys Know How To Play ‘Real’ Instruments, Too
The band, who originate from Copenhagen, Denmark, also “know how to play what you would call real instruments,” but, “bottles have become real instruments to [them] now.” Hey, why not? They clearly make beautiful music.
