Only the bare necessities.

What’s better than cracking open a cold beer after landing from a four-hour flight? Especially when the airport is BYOB from origin to destination.

Dean Stinson was flying from Melbourne, Australia to Perth when he checked a single can of Emu Export lager as his only baggage.

Thanks to an assist from a friend who worked at the airport, he planned the stunt as just that, a stunt—there’s no way this would work, right? News.au.com reports that he didn’t expect it to come out on the other side of his travels, but when he arrived at baggage claim in Perth, there it was ahead of the rest of the luggage: A lone can of beer, with a checked bag tag wrapped around it.

“My mate works at the airport and we hatched the plan as a laugh — I half didn’t expect it to come out the other end,” Stinson told the Daily Caller.

Will there be more copycats for this prank? Maybe someone checking a 40 ouncer, or a box of wine? Don’t get any ideas, the airline says. “This guy’s done it and he’s won the internet for the day, so we’re happy to move on,” a spokesperson for the airline Qantas said.
