It seems like someone "discovers" how to saber champagne once a year or so and puts it up on the Web. We unearthed a champagne sabering video back in 2009, and our man on the street Andrew has found a video from 2007 that was just covered by the folks at science fiction site IO9. Andrew's take:

Here is the annual "how to saber" video - this time a month too late to be useful for New Years.
