A Recycling Bin Hands Out Free Bottle of Wine

Still from the Video

For the holidays, wine producer Oddbins decided to give a little present to some lucky recyclers in Central London. They had an odd (recycling) bin pass out gift-wrapped bottles of Oddbins Errazuriz Cabernet Sauvignon to people dropping off empties.

Watch below as passerbys get the cheery surprise, especially when one man valiantly tries to open the bin to see what's going on (then acts as if he's stealing the wine). The team is even kind enough to supply a couple with two wine glasses for an impromptu party. Some questions we have: Do they have to card? And would Americans ever take wine coming from a garbage can?
