The spot shows Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) donning his new Ant-Man suit, shrinking down to a miniature size for the first time, and then facing a fierce trial by water. Ant-Man is scheduled to release in theaters on July 17, 2015.

The Bottle Boys Perform Johannes Brahms’ Song ‘Hungarian Dace No. 5′ Using Beer Bottles as Instruments

Published by:

The five Denmark-based members of The Bottle Boys recently performed a fast-paced cover of the famous “Hungarian Dace No. 5” dance tune, created in the mid 1800s by German composer and pianist Johannes Brahms, using beer bottles as instruments.

For this video we decided that we wanted to challenge ourselves musically. We wanted to play something that would demand us playing really fast and still musically intriguing.

While brainstorming which song to play we found that we had made all too few interpretations of classical pieces of music which can be quite challenging. So we chose one of the most virtuosic pieces of classical music and made a bottle interpretation of it: Brahm’s Hungarian Dance No. 5.

It was quite hard and extremely fun to play, since there are a lot of changes in tempo and dynamics throughout the piece. The most well-known interpretations of it are played by a symphony orchestra lead by a conductor who makes all the interpretational musical decisions. So we had a lot of fun practicing to play this piece as “one mind” like a (bottle) chamber music quartet.

The original song for comparison:

Published by:

Inventor Ivan Owen and his daughter built air-powered “musical stairs” using pressure plates and antique organ pipes. After their build was complete, the pair ordered a pizza to see how the delivery man would react to the sound.

Owen has created a number of interesting inventions in the past like a steak knife weed-whacker, a cornstarch flamethrower, and his daughter helped him build an electric cereal-eating machine.
