Internet challenges are viral challenges that have people try a task that appears to be easy, but is very difficult to execute. Such challenges that had passed are the Invisible Box Challenge, where people would try to jump over an “invisible box” without falling over.

The current challenge that is out there now is called the “Bottle Cap Challenge.” This challenge involves a person needing to do a roundhouse kick to remove a bottle cap but without hitting the bottle itself.

According to a post from Know Your Meme, the challenge originated from an Instagram video made by Taekwondo instructor Farabi Davletchin. The video showed him kicking a bottle cap off of a bottle in two different ways. He then tagged four people in his post and challenged them to do the same: Jason Statham, Conor McGregor, Jean Claude Van Damme, and Jackie Chan.

A few days later, Max Holloway, an MMA fighter, posted a Tweet of him doing the challenge as well, and he tagged musician John Mayer.

Mayer, being a good sport, tried the challenge himself and was successful, as shown in his Instagram post. He also challenged Jason Statham to do the same.

In the Philippines, there have been a couple of internet personalities that took on the challenge. Our very own Bogart the Explorer from Davao City tried the challenge in a video and he added a bit of twist to it as well.

This challenge is difficult, but fun to watch, specially when other people try to do their own take of it. I’d try the challenge myself, but I’d rather watch people more qualified than me do it.
