Let's address the obvious questions then. Firstly, no, you didn't read that headline wrong. The video above shows someone popping open a bottle of champagne with a shot from a 50-caliber sniper rifle.

Secondly, yes, the video is incredibly overdramatic, and thirdly, no, he didn't hit the shot first time. A few bottles went to waste.

Fourthly, yes the entire concept is pretty pointless (and yet somehow irresistible), and fifthly, yes again, it is indeed set in America. But you shouldn't have had to ask that last one.

Fifthly, the answer to your final question - or to that dangerous thought that crossed your mind at very least - is no, you should obviously not try this at home. As if you have a sniper rifle anyway!

Instead, just watch the clip up top on repeat and appreciate the majesty of the best uncorking ever. And no, you don't have to thank us for bringing it to your attention.
