The latest viral craze to sweep the Internet has been the #BottleCapChallenge, originally started by Taekwando champion Farabi Davletchin, in which one attempts to take the cap off of a bottle with just a roundhouse kick.
Since then, a surprising amount of musicians have tried their luck at the feat. Some have been glorious (Justin Bieber, Mariah Carey), some not so much (Blake Shelton, Blanco Brown) – but all entertaining.
Watch their submissions below.
Mayer was the first musician to hop on the trend after being challenged by UFC fighter Max Holloway on June 29. Sporting a Madonna shirt, the singer delivered an impressive kick and challenged actor Jason Statham.
Since no one requested me to do this (@johnmayer ) and also since no one thinks I’m good at anything except pushing button on stage .. here is evidence that I also do karate. I challenge Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Kevin Durant and Obama @sussexroyal @easymoneysniper @barackobama #bottlecapchallenge
Salty that Mayer didn’t challenge him, DJ Diplo posted his attempt from the beaches of Ibiza as “evidence” that he does karate. He then jokingly passed it onto Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, Kevin Durant and Obama.
Calling the challenge “way too much of a sausage fest,” pop singer Goulding nailed her kick and nominated a slew of women, also taking the time to remind her followers to stop using plastic bottles.

In one of the sadder attempts, country crooner Shelton took out an entire bottle of Smithworks vodka instead of just its cap. After crying, “Oh god, what have I done!” he runs away, cradling the drink.

Proving that she truly has The Voice, Carey knocked off a bottle cap using only her vocal chords. A contender for the best submission of them all, there’s simply no explanation for this besides pure talent.
Trying to emulate Carey, “The Git Up” singer tried to de-cap both a plastic and glass bottle using his pipes. With neither successful, he decided to leave the whistle-toning to Carey herself.
Bieber’s effort came with a message for none other than Tom Cruise. Before successfuly kicking off the cap mid-air, he simply said “This could be Tom Cruise’s head,” challenging the actor in his caption along with wife Haley Bieber.
Last but not least, Lizzo showed the world that this challenge is not easy with a giggly video of her completely missing the bottle. When she successfully kicks the cap, a decent amount of water comes with it, complete with a caption calling out everyone for not “really knockin that bottle cap off the bottle bitch!!!”
