Lego Ship in a Bottle on Time-Lapse Video: "There are a few ways to get an oversize object through the skinny neck of a bottle. A model ship is made to collapse its masts and sails and then be slid through the open mouth. Once the ship’s inside, you tug on a string to re-erect the rigging. The pears inside bottles of brandy and Poire William are actually grown inside those bottles, and you can see the surreal sight of them hanging off trees in orchards. (Some bargain brandies resort to a screw-off base to the bottle, but that’s cheating.)"
