Coolest Thing Online This Week? The Bottle Boys Cover "Billie Jean"

Covers of classic tracks and unconventional instruments are a big thing on youtube, so you can bet the Bottle Boys’ rendition of Billie Jean got some attention after it was posted this week. The Bottle Boys are a Danish band, who cover popular songs, using (you guessed it) glass bottles.

"Hi everybody! Once again it is time for BOTTLE MONDAY (last monday of the month) which means, that a new video is released! We are so excited for this one, because we simply just LOVE Michael Jackson," the group wrote on YouTube.

The five-piece Danish band has been posting covers on YouTube since 2010, and have covered songs like Carly Rae Jepsen’s Call Me Maybe, Taylor Swift’s We Are Never Getting Back Together and Eminem’s The Real Slim Shady. Despite the original concept, however, the channel only has just over 32,000 subscribers and even their most viewed video to date – Billie Jean – is yet to crack the half million view mark.

However, the band have seen some mainstream success. Last year, the Bottle Boys appeared on Britain’s Got Talent, performing their version of LMFAO's "Party Rock" for the judges. Unfortunately, their talent didn't impress Simon Cowell, but it did impress the three other judges. They've also starred in a Pepsi commercial playing a Bruno Mars hit in anticipation of his big Super Bowl halftime show.

So what about the Billie Jean cover? Will this be this month’s ear worm?
