    I saw this video and did it in one second , I’m only 12
    I pushed my palms into the middle sides and just tried to crush it , depending on the strength of the apple it gets crushed or splits vertically through the core

    With opening a bottle with another bottle, you should not use the bottom sided edge of the top one to open it. Since there IS a possebility that the top one will open or atleast open like a very tiny bit. You should use the rounded edge of the top where it curves downwards, if you get what I mean ( damn this is hard to explain without showing ). it's a bit harder this way ( not a lot since this is a pretty easy "skill" ) but a lot safer :P

    The most satisfying part of the video was, Mr. Boyd taking a bit of an apple. I guess that Iconic sound of commercials or wherever it appears is much more real than expected.

    I have a feeling the kind of apple makes a big difference on this trick.
    I've given it around 20 minutes or so but couldn't make anything happen with my Fuji apples. They just feel too hard, it's like trying to split a rock. I'm in decent shape too.

    In the Philippines opening a bottle with everything you get your hands on isn't a party trick everyone knows that some of my friends even opens a bottle with their fucking teeth.
    No one got time for borrowing and waiting for a bottle opener to open their beers, you gotta spoon or any other utensils, lighter, paper, coin, ring, edge of the table, ect. You can open a bottle.

    5:00 I tried to split a big lady in half with my bare hands. Didn't end so well, she called the cops. I couldn't really get my hands around her either.

  • Kevin Shi

    0:40 that's because you're using the top bottle to apply a force acting as a lever on the bottom bottle, which results on the bottom bottle opening as opposed to the top.
    If you held the top still (lets say you superglued it to the roof) and you used the bottom as a lever instead, the top would open.
    Although your drink would pour out. So yeah, don't do that.
