The latest challenge to have gone viral on social media is the Bottle Cap challenge. It was kickstarted by Farabi Davletchin, a taekwondo player from Kazakhstan on June 25.
The challenge requires you to uncap a bottle with a kick so delicate that the bottle remains unharmed. Since its emergence, many celebrities like Sushmita Sen, Jason Statham, Ryan Reynolds, Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff have posted their videos of the challenge. Here we have a look at the best versions of the challenge.
1. Uncap and Cap
TikTok user @calebnatale has taken the challenge a notch higher. He uncaps a bottle with a kick while holding an uncapped bottle. He makes the cap of the first bottle land smoothly on the uncapped one. Sounds impossible? See it to believe it.
2. With a Golf Club
So you think Golf is boring? Well, trust Ian James Poulter to change that perception. The two-time World Golf Champion shows us just why he is a champion. Poulter uses a delicate swing of the Golf club to complete the challenge.
3. Vidyut Jamwal’s Three Bottle Cap Challenge
One look at him and you’d know that Vidyut Jamwal is a thoroughly disciplined fitness freak. Now, he also shows us his ability to focus and swing a kick. His social media post shows him uncapping three bottles in one go.
4. With a Car
The world is coming up with more and more creative ways to take up the challenge. If you thought it is difficult to control a kick, just imagine the kind of control you’d need to uncap a bottle with a car nudge. That’s exactly what Instagram user Iskander Utebayev has managed to do. (Please stay safe, enjoy the video and don’t try this!)

6. Ryan Reynolds’ Epic Buildup
The Deadpool star is known for his amazing sense of humour. His social media accounts are an endless treasure of funny takes on the latest trends.

7. Tiger Shroff’s Blindfolded Challenge
If Vidyut completed three bottles in the challenge, Tiger Shroff did it with a blindfold. His social media post was a tribute to Donnie Yen, the Ip Man actor. Donnie, the martial art legend, was the first one to do the challenge blindfolded. Tiger duly followed his inspiration.
8. Sushmita Sen is not One to be Left Behind
The former Miss Universe is well known for her fitness goals. An ardent Yoga practitioner, her social media posts are no stranger to fitness videos. Little surprise then that she has posted a video about her flawless execution of the bottle cap challenge.
