How to Open a Bottle Of Wine Without A Corkscrew

Corkscrews always go missing when you need a glass of wine the most. 

Corkscrews have a nasty habit of playing hide and seek on the days you need a glass of wine the most. 
We’ve all been there. But there’s hope! All you need is a wall and a shoe. This is not a joke! Yes, this is a real way to open a wine bottle.
According to Mirabeau Wine's YouTube Channel,  you remove the wrapping around the cork first, then place your bottle in the shoe. Give it a few good whacks against a (solid) wall, and watch the cork inch its way out. Voila! You may now proceed with chugging your wine in celebration.
Please note however according to the You Tube channel itself:
"THIS MAN IS A WINE 'PROFESSIONAL' AND HAS OPENED MORE BOTTLES OF WINE THAN HIS WIFE WOULD CARE TO REMEMBER. PLEASE USE EXTREME CAUTION WHEN TRYING THIS METHOD YOURSELF AS IT MAY LEAD TO WALL AND/OR PERSONAL DAMAGE. I.E. THE BOTTLE COULD SHATTER OR THE WALL COULD FALL DOWN."
