Man Who Invented Bottle-Flipping Phenomenon Apologizes for Distracted Students
Michael Senatore's video has been viewed more than six million times.
The man who created a viral phenomenon wants to apologize as backlash grows against the bottle-flipping craze for drawing children away from their schoolwork.
“I want to apologize to all teachers, it's not my intention, not my intention at all, to get your kids distracted,” 18-year-old Michael Senatore told Inside Edition.
Some schools now want to ban the bottle-flip craze because they say it's distracting students from their work. The Wall Street Journal has called bottle-flipping "really, really annoying."
The North Carolina high school student filmed himself flipping a bottle with a small amount of water in it and flipping it so it lands on its base.
The stunt caught on after it was posted on YouTube earlier this year. His video has been viewed more than six million times.
“It’s incredible,” Senatore told Inside Edition. “Spain, Germany, people in Australia, people from all around the world are doing it. It's just incredible.”
In May, he appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to show off his skill.
