Water IS correct, if Mr video maker doesn't start changing his experiment half way -_-
And it makes sense, that if the water is moving as a whole because there is no air, it will move faster than if the water is also flowing around the bottle at the same time.
Builds more momentum or something? I haven`t got a clue but that feels right to me...

Apparently ice does unless the water has extra air in the bottle. More exciting nerd info if you vote and follow it on youtube..

I guessed water. Forgive my ignorance, but doesn't there have to be a right answer unless they both roll at the same speed? Also doesn`t adding air into the liquid filled bottle make the experiment void?

oh man.. it's just normal that a sealed bottle goes faster than one with a hole with air in it, because the one with air in it it will move it`s weight back and forth and is not as straight then, that`s all it`s about.
