A video showcasing a man in a red t-shirt using an alligator to open a beer can has gone viral.
The footage has the Florida man on board an airboat enticing an alligator in the water by tapping on its head.
When the alligator instinctually opened its mouth, the man quickly pierces a can of beer on its teeth then hands the beverage to a man next to him, who starts excitedly drinking it.
The stunt drew loud cheers from the small group in the airboat.
