#BottleCapChallenge

 

The internet has accepted the Bottle Cap Challenge, and there’s no going back. It has been a week since the action-movie star Jason Statham helped kick-start the excitement which was supposedly started by Roman Kambur on June 20 when he posted a video of himself kicking the cap off a water bottle. Since then, the challenge has taken on a life of its own.

By July 8, Mr. Statham’s viral video had been viewed more than 19 million times and had helped inspire thousands of others around the world to put their own spin on the challenge, using everything from cheap shoes to sports cars. Mariah Carey’s spin took the cup in my own opinion, she didnt even have to lift a single toe:
