Flipping a water bottle so it lands squarely on its bottom isn’t that hard, but we still love it. Why? Because presentation is key. Mike Senatore knew how to make a mundane moment great, and he made it so excellent that virtually the entire world was enthralled by it.
But what happens when you combine the presentation skills of Senatore with an actual skill? How Ridiculous, essentially an Australian equivalent of Dude Perfect, has shown us what bottle flipping can truly achieve with their latest video.
The Aussie YouTubers put together a compilation video of the best bottle flipping tricks they were able to pull off, and they sure do impress. They managed to land a bottle while doing a backflip, by using a fishing rod, by flinging it into a mailbox with a skateboard, while speeding by in a truck, by bouncing it on a basketball, and even on their own heads.
Then there were the height challenges, which got significantly more daring and impressive as the video progressed. They started with a balcony in their home, which was fine. Then they did it on the back of a basketball hoop, which is pretty legitimate. Then, they landed a bottle on the top of a lamppost, which kind of blew our minds.
But it was their last trick that really put this video over the top: They went to a local McDonald’s and managed to throw a bottle up and land it on the big McDonald’s sign, perched right next to the golden arches.
Check out the super neat video above, and let us know if you think we’re hyping this up to much, and if YOU could do all this stuff EASY.
