First, it was the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge; then, it was the bottle-flipping craze; now, celebrities are jumping on the bottle cap challenge.
The viral social media trend challenges participants try to unscrew the top of a bottle with a roundhouse kick without knocking the object over.
As The New York Times noted, the cap is loosened off-camera while another person holds the bottle steady.
It is unclear how the challenge started, but Kazakh Taekwondo champion Farabi Davletchin, who posted a video of himself roundhouse kicking a bottle cap in slow motion.
He nominated Conor McGregor, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Jackie Chan and Jason Statham to accept the challenge.
Even 2020 presidential candidate Andrew Yang joined in on the fun.
