An Australian airplane passenger checked a can of beer as his only luggage on a Qantas Airways flight from Melbourne to Perth on Saturday.

The man known as Dean said he and a few “mates,” one of which worked at the airport, came up with the idea to check nothing but the can of Emu Export beer as a joke, and it quickly caught the attention of others in the airport as it traveled down the baggage carousel alone with a tag attached to it, CNET reported.

“There was no luggage out yet but everyone was milling around and had their phones out so I was pretty sure I knew what was going on,” he said. “I half expected to find it empty, but if it didn’t turn up I’d have filed a lost luggage report,” Dean said, CNET reported.

Qantas does not charge a fee to check baggage on its flights.

A spokesman for Qantas confirmed the happening and said the airline didn’t encourage others to follow suit.

“This guy’s done it and he’s won the internet for the day, so we’re happy to move on,” the spokesman said, according to the BBC.

Twitter was abuzz with videos and photos of the can of beer on the baggage claim carousel.
