It's 2017, and we can just buy a squeeze bottle ketchup container if we really want to, but the dreaded glass-bottle does still exist, and it can be a hassle to open.
Rhett and Link of the popular YouTube show Good Mythical Morning are known for taking things to the extreme, so it shouldn't be a surprise that they'd use a ceiling fan to get ketchup out of a bottle.
The two hosts had a little fun with it and actually put together four weird ways to do perform these ketchup duties, and you can try them at home, too. Kind of. Not really. I guess if you have these random things in your household.
If you thought drums could only be useful for making music, you were very wrong. Rhett jumped on a drum set, taped the ketchup bottle to the kick drum, and started banging ketchup out of it, right down onto a boat of fries.
So, if you happen to have balloons and an air compressor lying around, you have yourself a perfect opportunity to get ketchup out of a bottle. Rhett and link put the balloon at the tip of the compressor and stuck it in the bottle. And because the two are insane, the covered the ketchup bottle with onion rings. As the compressor turned on and the balloon expanded, the ketchup flowed out like lava, down the onion rings for a tasty volcano.
Attaching a tube to the hose of a vacuum cleaner, the two showed another inefficient, yet fun way to get ketchup out of the bottle. They initially sucked it out, letting it slowly fill the tube, then the reversed it, letting the ketchup gracefully fall on a boat of nuggets.
Believe it or not, of all these examples, this one might be the most practical way to release ketchup from that evil bottle. All you have to do is completely cover the room in plastic, wear a poncho, and strap ketchup bottles on every blade on your ceiling fan. Once you turn on the fan, the ketchup effortlessly comes out and gently land on your hot dog. Kind of.
OK, so you might not ever do any of these, but it's fun as hell watching Rhett and Link try them out.
