In a video posted to social media, Combs is teaching Sheeran the art of shotgunning a can of Miller Lite.
“Alright, for context, Luke is … what is it, shooting?” Sheeran tells the camera with a can of beer in hand.
“Shotgunning,” Combs answered.
“Luke is teaching me how to shotgun a beer,” Sheeran added.
Luke Combs went on to explain the concept, saying, “You wanna be mindful of where your top is, ’cause once that’s open it’s coming out of that if you’re pointing it at the ground. So you want this pointing at the sky,” he tells Ed while pointing to the top of the can. “Once you’re up…then you crack the top and it’s just gonna go.”
On the count of three, Ed and Luke put their mouth over holes punched in the side of the beer can, then pulled the tab to open the top so that the beer drained into their mouths quickly.
It took no time at all for Luke to throw his empty can to the ground, proof that he’s a shotgunning pro. Ed tried his best to keep up, but ultimately threw his can on the ground and said while pointing to Luke, “That was pretty impressive.”
