At their most basic level, yes, they're just metal bottle openers. But to us they're works of art and each one has a crazy, albeit made-up, story behind it. In reality, it's just a fun way to support Jesper. Trying to score one of these straight from him is entertainment at its finest. The comments in the sales posts is like walking through Walmart. There are so many people that just don't have a clue as to what's going on. I highly recommend getting one so you can join in on the fun.
