The bottle cap challenge is sweeping social media.
Like most other online challenges, the bottle cap challenge is simple but requires finesse to do it well. The challenge involves filming yourself kicking a twist-off bottle cap from just the right distance. If performed right, the challenge should end in a grazing blow that sends the cap twisting off, while leaving the bottle intact and upright.
Enter Ryan Reynolds—movie star, sarcastic goofball, and comedic hero. For someone who’s portrayed two different superheroes, kicking off a bottle cap seems like an easy task. The 43-year-old actor completed the challenge flawlessly in a video recently uploaded to his Twitter page.
Look at that form, that focus. The elegant twist, starting at the hips. And then: contact.
Only Ryan Reynolds can make failure look this good.
