A YouTube star known as the Crazy Russian Hacker revealed a surprisingly simple way to open a can without a can opener — using nothing but your bare hands (video below).
In the video, YouTube star Taras Kulakov explains that the useful can opening trick can come in handy during the “zombie apocalypse.”
“So in the zombie apocalypse I'm trying to survive and I found a can of meat and I'm starving and I have nothing to open with, no tools whatsoever,” Kulakov says. He goes on to provide step-by-step instructions on how to open a can with nothing but bare hands and concrete.
“I have a lot of concrete, you can find anywhere on the street ... how do you open a can using concrete? Simple,” he says, proceeding to place a can of tuna upside down on a slab of concrete and rub it back and forth vigorously and quickly.
“Once you scraped a lot all you got to do is squeeze it and you opened it,” he said. “See how all the edges are coming out now?”
Once the edges start to come out, a quick squeeze of the can causes the lid to pop off easily.
“Now you can survive!” he exclaims.
