Warning: this stunt involves sharp edges, breaking glass and fire. But if you’re careful, it could also involve fun.

STEP 1:

STEP 3:

Put the string back on the bottle and light it. Hold the bottle horizontally and rotate it so the flame spreads. Wait to hear the bottle crack slightly, about 10 seconds.
