Are you game for the latest Internet challenge to take over social media? Celebrities and social media users are sharing videos of themselves performing the Bottle Cap Challenge, a physical act that requires a person to remove the cap on top of a bottle in a single kick. The catch is, those attempting the challenge can't touch or move the bottle. 

According to CBS News, the Bottle Cap Challenge may have originated from mixed martial arts practitioners. World Taekwando champion Farabi Davletchin posted his video on June 26 where he tagged celebrities like Jason Statham and Jackie Chan to get them to share their own versions of the Bottle Cap challenge. The challenge may involve the service of a (brave) companion to hold up the bottle while the other person attempts to kick the bottle cap off.

UFC champion Max Holloway later posted his own version and tagged singer-songwriter John Mayer who responded with his attempt at the Bottle Cap Challenge. Action star Statham eventually shared his take on the Bottle Cap challenge with a video on Twitter on July 1. His video has garnered over four million views on Twitter. 
Bollywood star Akshay Kumar said he couldn't resist posting up his own attempt at the Bottle Cap challenge.

While Donnie Yen raised the bar by doing the Bottle Cap challenge with a blindfold on.

The Bottle Cap challenge has proven to be quite difficult with some users sharing their own failed attempts or unique take on social media as well.
