I do this all the time with those bottles and with bear. It's a great
bar trick.

in layman's terms.
When hit, the carbonation (gas) is released (releasing thermo energy)
which lowers the molecular temp to make it flash freeze. The carbonation
is in water bottles to help with packing. This way they can use
creeper/thinner plastics. Bear-gas, I believe that's from the yest.

Freeze a bear "bottle" for 2 to 3 hours. Remove the cap "very slowly. Do
not pour! As you give it to your friend, tape it hard. If you work at
it, have them take there first drink and then tape it.
