Before the internet, we had no way of hacking life. Thanks to groups like Anonymous and Buzzfeed, we can now hack life with little more than a hot glue gun.
The videos and lists and how-to guides are everywhere. They’re full of dance music and people showing you how tying a rubber band around something can use this awesome new force called friction to stop things slipping.
It’s a strange phenomenon and one which would probably be more useful in a war-torn country where rationing has ended all hope of consumer goods. A picture frame made out of a drinking straw (genuine life hack) would be a better tip for Communist Czechoslovakia than a bunch of middle-class white dudes in Los Angeles.
In this new clip which is a parody but could honestly be real, the life hacker adds pockets to his jacket and finds a novel way of stopping a better bottle from slipping. All, incredibly, without the use of rubber bands.
