This is how you rock: watch a punk singer catch a flying beer and down it!
The facts are in and live music is widely recognised as being ‘pretty f**ken good’. Not only does a live gig present you with the opportunity to watch bands rock the f**k out on a live stage, it also presents you with the opportunity to swill beer with your mates. If you’re a fan of rock n roll, punk or metal, you might have seen a vocalist pluck a flying beer out of the air, skull the c**t, and keep going like he does it every day. If you haven’t, here’s a mad vid of John Coffey singer David Achter de Molen demonstrating exactly how it’s done.
The flying beer is something of a stalwart at a live show, but rarely does it happen as aesthetically as it does in this video. Deadset, everything just seems to come together here. The f**ken stars align, the winds are right, the camera man is in the perfect f**ken position and the throw, an arcing lob, is just about perfect.
And how’s the take. It flies through the air and old mate David Dutch-Name is cool as you like about it. He’s got his rock-star on. He’s doing the crowd-walk. He’s striking a pose while the wind ruffles his hair and the ladies swoon. He’s loving life, and the only thing he’s probably wondering is what could make this situation any better?
Lo and f**ken behold, along comes a beer. Like Thor’s hammer, it seems destined to land right in his hand. Its trajectory is spot on. David Dutch-Name barely has to move. He just stretches out a rock n roll fist, plucks the beer out of the sky, f**ken necks it, and nonchalant as you like, he discards the empty cup.
Ladies, gentleman, wankers of the court, as any true Ozzy would say after a catch like that, Howzat! How-the-f**k’s-zat!
Final thought: Talk about a charmed life. If you’re living the dream and people are so desperate to share their beers with you that they just have to send them your way, it’s safe to say you’re a bloody legend. Check out the catch & an interview with the bloke who threw the beer below.
