Video of water bottle flip makes North Carolina teen an Internet star

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- It's the bottle flip that caused the internet to lose its mind.

A senior at Ardrey Kell High School in Charlotte took part in the school's talent show Tuesday and has become the latest viral sensation. But not because his talent was all that... talented.

CBS affiliate WBTV reported a video posted to Twitter shows Mike Senatore walk onto the stage with partially filled water bottle and some very dramatic music. He struts and showboats for the first part of the video.

Senatore then stands up straight and casually flips the bottle. It lands on a table, standing straight up.

The auditorium goes wild, with teenagers screaming and running around.

Classmate Wesley Manning tweeted the video. As of Thursday afternoon, it had been retweeted, liked and shared thousands of times.

Another video, posted by classmate Scottie Finanger, showed a closer view of the feat.
