The Bottle Boys Perform a Cover of the Village People’s Hit Song ‘Y.M.C.A.’ Using Beer Bottles as Instruments

The five Denmark-based members of Bottle Boys (previously) recently showed off their shared set of skills while performing a cover of the Village People‘s 1978 hit song “Y.M.C.A.” using beer bottles as instruments.

We decided to shoot this video in our own studio, since it’s too cold outside here in Denmark and since we wanted it to have a more cosy look, without too much else going on in the frame. In that way you can really focus on what’s being played. We chose to play Y.M.C.A because it has some fast melodic parts and some really cool secondary melody lines.

The original song for the sake of comparison:
