Famous Movie Scores Played On Beer Bottles


Turning an age-old pub trick into a full blown art form, Copenhagen five-piece The Bottle Boys specialise in, you guessed it, making music by blowing into empty beer vessels.

More often than not the resulting sounds are sweeter than the liquid gold which once filled those bottles. But they've now gone and used this admittedly niche skillset to pay homage to major film soundtracks, enlisting the help of the Budapest Art Orchestra for their efforts.

Okay, anyone can do Jurassic Park, we get you; but just try faithfully recreating Harry Potter, the Imperial March from Star Wars all before seguing into the famous notes of Indiana Jones before last orders have been called. These are just a few picks of the classics re-scored below.

As for our favourite, we'll say Terminator 2, managing to remind us of the metallic melodies which once accompanied Arnie’s stark naked android.
