Important Discovery: London Train Ceilings Double As Bottle Openers

In urgent need of a beer?

There are two kinds of people: show-offs, who use black magic to open beer bottles with lighters, and the rest of us, who fruitlessly attempt to smoosh plastic against glass in a fat-fingered attempt to liberate Alcohol, Quencher of Thirst from her glassy prison.

For the latter camp, an important discovery: the ceiling of Southern Trains’ metro fleet works as a handy bottle opener.

Shit London curator Patrick Dalton somehow realised that, by fateful coincidence, the trains’ air conditioning ducts are perfectly shaped to pop the cap off a beer bottle. And he recorded a video to prove it.
