We’ve all had those moments when you’re at the beach, around a campfire or in the hockey locker room and you realize you don’t have a twist cap, and you don’t have a bottle opener. Bottle Cap Blues, a video by Chris Sumers, which is basically a 50 way to open a beer bottle instructional video. Pay attention! You never know when you may need to leverage something to get that drink into your belly.
This is a short film that I was a part of for Adam Young’s solo Art Show at Common House Gallery entitled: Songs of the Early Riser. Adam had a concept for a video installation. I took his concept and put it into a video. We originally had 4 different edits looping at the show in his installation, but this edit is a compilation of my favorite clips from the three day shoot. This has been the most fun project I have been a part of to date. Sitting around with your friends killing a couple of six packs of beer trying to think of different means to open your next drink is pretty fun. I encourage you to try it.
While the idea of this Salta brand beer vending machine was for Argentina Rugby players to tackle it, it looks more like a body check for us Canadians. I really like the concept. I think I just like the concept of a beer vending machine. The “pussy” meter is honestly a nice touch.
The machine was created by the Ogilvy agency for Cerveza Salta in Argentina. The machine is padded on both sides and the only way to get a beer is for a hard tackle or body check. I wonder how sturdy it is and how easy it is to tip over. I also feel sorry for the beer getting shaken around in there.
