This genius trick, uploaded as video by Twitter user Valentina Pestilene, has blown the collective mind of the Internet with its exasperatingly obvious technique (in retrospect). A knife is inserted gently into the bulb, and a single twist is enough to separate and remove the nail from the skin. “As someone who makes a lot of Korean food, this is the best method to peel garlic!” He wrote in a caption below the video.

The reactions of the people, from the celebrities to the chefs, joined in wonder at the beauty of all this.
