It's called a "bird swing" and is obviously a manufacturing defect. Although you see bottles with bird swings listed for huge money, they don't sell. Not sure why, but this era of Pepsi and Coke bottles seem to have commonly had these. Regardless, I'd say it is a curiosity and it makes this otherwise worthless bottle something that someone might pay $10 for.

I've got a couple of umbrella inks with the bird swing. Really neat but doesn't add any value. Mold and blowing defects always seem so neat but rarely add value for some reason.
