A man was able to successfully check-in a single can of beer as a piece of luggage on his Qantas Airlines flight from Melbourne to Perth in Australia this past Saturday. Why, you ask? Just for fun.
The man, who wishes to be only known as Dean, says, “It honestly just seemed like a good laugh, an idea a mate and I cooked — pretty much a meme in real life for all the export drinkers out there.” For those who don’t know, Emu Export is a beer originally from Perth.
At Melbourne Airport, Dean had problems with the automated check-in counter. “It wouldn’t register the can as a bag so I had to use some creative tray stacking to fool it into thinking there was a bag on the conveyor. Was bloody stoked when it finally went green and zoomed off,” he says.
Dean wasn’t sure if it would make it, but was “prepared to submit a lost luggage report if it didn’t. A shoutout was given to the baggage handlers for not drinking it.
