Because they want to make sure you can open a bottle of wine at all times, Eater put together this video demonstrating five inventive ways to pop the cork. Things start off with stuff you'd find in any garage -- a bike pump, a hammer and nail -- but gradually build towards slightly more niche items. We'll put it this way: if you've been waiting for the right time to bust out your new blowtorch, you're going to love this demo.

Kristin Hunt is a Food/Drink staff writer for Thrillist, and thinks you could probably skip the "tonging technique" and just smash the top of the bottle on your counter, right? Follow her at @kristin_hunt.
