Ah, teenage talent shows. They conjure up memories of pure, unadulterated embarrassment - because really, we weren't talented at all.

But one teenager from North Carolina has become an internet sensation after a video of his kick-ass 'flipping a bottle' trick has gone viral.

The trick sounds simple - Michael Senatore arrives onstage before tossing his bottle onto a table, with it landing vertically.

But what really sets this video apart is the theatrics of the performance and top reaction from the audience.

Watch it.

You've probably already picked up a bottle to try it yourself. The trick, apparently, is to fill a third of the bottle with water then just gently flip it onto the table.


Go on, give it a try.
