Bottle Boys - Beat It (Michael Jackson)

The Bottle Boys play Beat It on a selection of bottles.


By Maddy Shaw Roberts

Everyone knows you can blow into a beer bottle and make a humming noise, but these guys have taken the classic party trick to the next level.

The Bottle Boys have recreated a full bottle-version of Michael Jackson’s 'Beat It', using wine, beer and coke bottles, and something resembling a drain pipe.

The result is a foot-tapping array of musical brilliance, made even more entertaining by the boys’ wide-eyed, jaunty routine and matching beer crates.

If you want to see more videos from them, check out their Patreon page. They promise that if they reach their goal, they will share the sheet music of ten original Bottle Boys arrangements, as well as a short instruction video on bottle blowing, so you can try them out for yourself!
