The “Bottle Cap Challenge”, the challenge in which you will attempt to unscrew a cap from a bottle with a roundhouse kick, has taken the social media world by storm this week. Just this week alone, actors, stunt coordinators, martial artists, fans – basically people around the world – have been posting videos of themselves doing the said challenge on Instagram and Twitter. One of the most successful attempts – and highly shared at that – is that of Hobbs & Shaw star, Jason Statham.
Jason Statham’s colleague in the MMA world, Conor McGregor, also perfectly executes this challenge. He posted the video on Twitter, after which he nominated Floyd Mayweather to do the challenge in his caption.

2012 Twilight child actress, Mackenzie Foy, who played Renesmee Cullen also didn’t back down in this challenge. She posted her own version in her official Instagram account.
Hong Kong martial artist, Donnie Yen, takes it up a notch by doing the challenge with a blindfold on.

Chirrut feeling the force + Ip man’s steady aim + no plastic bottle = the universe strongest 😆 #bottlecapchallenge @sweetcil #donnieyen #甄子丹 #宇宙最強 #ipman #action #宇宙最強甄子丹 #chirrutimwe #starwars #rogueone #noplasticbottle #torontoraptors #nbachampions #raptors #bulletfilms #superbulletpictures @bulletfilmsofficial @superbulletpictures
While one actor attempts to do it better than the other, it seems that there are also those who didn’t have nearly as much success in their own version of this challenge. Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds posted a video of himself doing the “Bottle Cap Challenge” on Twitter. Given that he has a stake in Aviation Gin and the challenge pretty much relates to “bottles”, there is no wonder that the video advertised the said spirit, despite the fact that Reynolds failed big time in unscrewing the cap. Instead, he kicked the entire bottle to the side before attempting to escape from the “mishap.”
