In this post, we’re going to dive into this trend, and more importantly, guide you on how you can recreate it at home.
The beauty of the Glass Bottle Challenge lies in its simplicity and ASMR-ability. Each bottle, whether filled with colorful marbles, champagne, or even olives, meets a different fate as it tumbles down the stairs. The suspense, the shattering glass, the unexpected outcomes – it’s a spectacle that’s as thrilling to watch.
The sound of glass clinking, the sight of objects in motion, and the anticipation of what happens next all contribute to a unique ASMR experience that’s both satisfying and oddly relaxing.
To recreate the TikTok Glass Bottle Stairs Trend, you’ll need a variety of glass bottles. Consider different sizes and shapes for variety. You might also want to fill some of these bottles with interesting items, such as colorful marbles, glitter, or even liquids of different colors.
These flat-bottomed, screw-top wine bottles are perfect for the challenge. They’re sturdy and have a nice roll to them.
These mason jars are also a very popular choice; they allow you to fit more marbles / food / drinks, making the blast bigger.
These mini champagne bottles are thicker and might not break as easily, adding an element of suspense.
Fillings: of course, this is the most important bit. You can fill these bottles with whatever you want – seriously, let your imagination run wild.
However, we have found that even though you can mix several things together (such as: olives and marbles, liquids and solids), marbles are always a good foundation for any idea. You can mix them up with anything and it will still look satisfying.
These colorful marbles can create a beautiful effect when the bottle breaks.
These assorted marbles add a variety of colors to your video, making it visually appealing.
This glitter can create a sparkling explosion when the bottle breaks, adding a magical touch to your video.
These small beads can add an element of surprise to your video. They come in a variety of colors, making the effect even more exciting.
2. Safety First
Safety is really important when dealing with sharp glass parts. Do not skip this step out of laziness. The safety glasses and protective gloves provide essential protection against potential injuries from flying or broken glass shards. By prioritizing safety, you can fully enjoy the excitement of the trend without worrying about unnecessary risks.
Safety Glasses: These DEWALT safety glasses provide excellent protection and have a comfortable fit, ensuring your eyes are safe during the challenge.
Protective Gloves: These DEX FIT gloves are resistant to cuts, perfect for handling and cleaning up broken glass. They’re also comfortable and washable.
Find a suitable flight of stairs where you can safely roll the bottles down. Make sure it’s an area where you can easily clean up afterward and where there’s no risk of injury to bystanders. From what we have seen, marble stairs are the best.
4. Set up the camera (phone)
You’ll need to set up a camera or your phone in a secure location where it can clearly record the bottles rolling down the stairs. Make sure the area is well-lit so your video is clear. You can use some light effects when recording these TikTok Glass Bottle Stairs videos.
Something like this phone LED attachment light would help you to light up the area perfectly:
5. Let the good times… ROLL!
Now comes the fun part! One by one, gently roll your bottles down the stairs and capture the results. Remember, the unpredictability is part of the fun, so don’t worry if things don’t go exactly as planned.
6. Clean Up
After you’ve finished recording, it’s time to clean up. You’ll need a broom and dustpan to sweep up the larger pieces of glass, and a vacuum to pick up any smaller shards. Be thorough to ensure all glass is removed.
This broom and dustpan set features dense bristles and an angled head, perfect for sweeping up glass shards. The dustpan has a rubber edge for effective collection of glass pieces.
