(Newser) – A moment at the Pinkpop Festival in the Netherlands has catapulted Dutch singer David Achter de Molen to rock-god status. De Molen of band John Coffey was "crowdwalking" during the show when someone hurled a cup of beer in his direction. Rather than dodge the cup, he managed to seemingly effortlessly grab it out of the air, take a swig, then throw it back to the crowd, generating a roar of approval, reports Mashable. Some have suggested footage of the incident, viewed more than 1.5 million times, is fake, per Inquisitr. But Belgian website HLN maintains it was no hoax. The singer is now "officially the coolest guy ever," per Time. "Dave Grohl, you have just been upstaged."
