The Bottle Cap Challenge has been making the rounds on social media and it shows no signs of slowing.  The viral internet stunt involves kicking a partially unscrewed bottle cap off a bottle without disturbing the beverage itself, all while filming the whole thing in slow motion. It originated in the MMA world but it has quickly spread through celebrity circles.

"Since no one requested me to do this (@johnmayer) and also since no one thinks I'm good at anything except pushing buttons 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," he wrote on Instagram.

Shaquille O'Neal's attempt was an epic fail. Instead of making contact with the cap, he missed and kicked his friend right in the face with his bare foot.
