First things first:l

what is the "Bottle Cap Challenge?"

It appears to have been started by this video:

The aim of the bottle cap challenge seems to be, in true Jason Statham movie style, to perform a roundhouse kick so precise that it unscrews the top of a bottle without causing any damage to the bottle itself.

When one person completes the challenge, they challenge another.

When it came around to MMA fighter Max Holloway, who totally nailed the challenge on a bottle of Tito's Vodka:

He challenged John Mayer.

Mayer rose to the occasion.

Mayer gets the cap clean off the bottle, before giving the viewer a look like:

"Yeah. I just did that."

Mayer then challenged Jason Statham.

Statham let no fan down with his Hollywood-worthy roundhouse kick.

After these guys brought it so hard, people wanted more.

People found it strangely attractive.

And videos are surfacing across the net of others trying out the bottle cap challenge.

Some less successfully than others.

Will the bottle cap challenge become a cultural landmark, just like the cinnamon challenge?

Hopefully it won't evolve into something like the Tide Pod challenge.

Jason Statham's challenges to Guy Ritchie and to James Moontasri were answered with gusto.

The only question is, when will the bottle cap challenge finally get to you?


As a "high achieving" student, the biggest mind-blowing fact I have ever learned has been the sheer amount of straight-up lying that happens in formal education.

It's a lot. Like a lot a lot. History class lied so hard.

Businesses have to turn a profit to be able to stay operational. We get it. A consumer is paying more than it costs to make the product to purchase the product. The upside of accepting this fact should be we're being provided a service and experience we couldn't possibly get on our own. However, there are those products that are overcharged, especially compared to the development costs, that are charged a high price for what feels like no reason outside of making a ridiculous amount of money.
