Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” is one of the all-time great pop songs, but one group of YouTube users have found a way to make the song even cooler. They performed the song using only beer bottles.
The Bottle Boys uploaded the video on May 26 and have already racked up 178,000 views. In it, they blow on the opening of beer bottles to create the classic sound of the song, which appeared on Jackson’s Thriller album. However, they do have to use a giant water barrel and another bottle with sand to complete the sounds.
This is the same group that has given the Internet an entire collection of bottle-based hit covers. Last year, they did Taylor Swift’s “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” but easily their best known video is their version of The Little Mermaid’s “Under The Sea.”
In that video, the guys actually came out from under a pool to Coke bottles to create the song. The video has earned over 800,000 views.
