Every other day, there is some challenge or another that is trending across social media. 

Earlier there was the Ice Bucket Challenge, then there was 10 year challenge, Kiki challenge, Shoot dance challenge and many more that took the internet by storm. 

These days it is the ‘bottle cap challenge’ that everyone is attempting to do, some with impressive success while others resulting in a funny moment. 

The challenge came into limelight after Jason Statham and Donnie Yen managed to pull it off, but it was when Ryan Reynolds also participated in it that it went viral. 

Till now, multiple people and celebrities have tried to do this challenge, with the videos amassing millions of views. 

What Is This Challenge?

The origin of the challenge itself is not exactly known but as per reports, it was first created by Kazakh Taekwondo instructor and fighter Farabi Davletchin on June 25th. 

However, he apparently used some other hashtag for it and challenged celebrities like Jason Statham, Connor McGregor, Jean-Claude Van Damme, and Jackie Chan to participate.

The challenge going viral could also be due to mixed martial-artist Max Holloway posting his own attempt and then asking other celebs like John Mayer, etc to do it too. 

The way you do the Bottle Cap Challenge is:

  • place a bottle on a table or have someone hold it for you
  • keep the cap loosely fixed on it
  • with a roundhouse kick you are supposed to untwist the cap from the bottle

Another rule of the challenge is that the bottle should not move and only the cap should fly off the top. 

The entire thing has to be recorded in slow motion format so that the viewer can see whether it has been done properly or not.

Ryan Reynolds used the challenge as an interesting way to market his gin brand called Aviation Gin. 

The video started out like a typical advertisement where the bottle is travelling great distance only to end up kicked down by Reynolds whose attempt fails. 


Even south Korean K-pop group EXO tried their hand at doing the bottle cap challenge, resulting in a lot of hilarious moments.

Sehun, one of the members, uploaded their attempts and shenanigans on his Instagram.
