In the picture above it is clear that a guy is holding a misshapen beer can to his lips – he's not drinking from it, he's using it to help him recreate the sound of a V10 engine. That's right: one man, one can, and the wail of one ten-cylinder motor.
But we cannot stress enough that this is not your average beer-can trick. In the nearly seven-minute video demonstrating how to do it yourself, he turns into Bill Nye the Science Guy, providing a waveform of the sound of a V10 with high, mid, and low frequency breakdowns and glossal interactions with the can, plus aural relationships to "a third major chord" that he replicates with a keyboard. Science class and fun, you'll find them in the video below.
