Two things happened in the late 19th century, an ocean apart: 1) Thomas Edison invented the first recorded music format, the phonograph cylinder and 2) Beck's started brewing beer. The two had nothing to do with each other. Until now.

Unbeknownst to us, Beck's has started a record label called The Green Box Project. To promote it and celebrate it, they teamed with a team of incredible recording engineers to turn a Beck's bottle into an Edison tube, thereby inventing the first playable, musical beer bottle. Check out how they did it in the video below, and don't try this at home.

Amazing, right? Try not to make your non-musical beer bottles feel too inadequate.
