THERE'S nothing more frustrating than getting a chilled bottle of beer and preparing to take drink before discovering you don't have a bottle opener.

Some people may try prising off the top with a key or a knife, or even risk their smile by trying to pull it off with their teeth, says The Sun.

How to open a beer with paper

But one man appears has come up with a simple way to pop the lid of the bottle and it involves a simple household item.

In a video uploaded to YouTube, student Rhys Morgan has shown how you can open a beer bottle by just using a piece of paper.

In his tutorial, which he calls "How to open a bottle of beer with a piece of paper", Rhys shows how it can be done using a standard A4 sheet.

First he takes the piece of paper and folds it in half before continually folding it vertically.

Then with only a small amount of paper left, he creates a V-shape with the paper before placing it against the bottle top.

He then applies pressure and in one swift motion, the top pops off and he is free to enjoy his refreshing drink.

Then you jam the point of the triangle under the lid and lever up.

Rhys says he discovered the trick after being stuck at a garden party with a broken bottle opener.

And according to the student, the trick works every time with all types of paper from thicker card to kitchen roll.

The video has already been watched more than seven million times.
