Offbeat Video

Set to a famous Australian barbecue song, this hilarious TikTok video features a creative beach-goer ‘persuading’ a live crab to open his bottle of beer.

The funny viral clip, captured on a hot summer’s afternoon in North Queensland, shows Kaelan Gough placing the bottle near the crab’s claw.

When it gets too close, the crab clamps down on on the cap, allowing Kaelan to twist it off.

“Crabs get defensive when anything goes near it,” Kaelan explained.

“We thought ‘wouldn’t it be cool if he grabbed the beer bottle and opened it.’

We thought it was fun and the crab continued to open everyones beers,” he added.
