About The #BottleCapChallenge That’s Taking Over Social Media

Even Jason Statham and John Mayer are doing it!

There’s a new challenge that’s taking social media by storm, and it’s already one for the books. Dogs, celebrities, and sportsmen alike are having their go at the #BottleCapChallenge and it’s taken some serious skill all-round. The goal of the challenge is to spin-kick the cap off a bottle without touching it with your hands. You’re also not allowed to cause any harm to the bottle (or your ego) in the process.

Hollywood’s finest have gotten involved, with Hobbs & Shaw star and martial artist Jason Statham stealing the show. Plus, the 51-year-old has challenged filmmaker Guy Ritchie and MMA specialist James Moontasri to do the same, so you may want to get the popcorn ready.
