The latest viral challenge has some celebrities side-kicking the caps off of water bottles. The challenge consists of placing the cap on top of a water bottle with the goal of unscrewing it with a single kick, but without moving the bottle itself.

Most of the videos are shot in slow-motion to intensify the movement and include the hashtag #BottleCapChallenge.

The viral challenge appears to have first made the rounds in the mixed martial arts world. Designer Errolson Hugh kicked things off and UFC Featherweight Champion Max Holloway helped it cross over into mainstream pop culture. Even Holloway's son, 6-year-old Rush, got in on the action.

Holloway showed off his kicking skills by posting a video of himself participating in the challenge. In the post on Twitter, Holloway then challenged singer John Mayer.

John Mayer joined in by posting a video on Instagram and mentioned Errolson Hugh was the first to complete the challenge. He then challenged actor Jason Statham, who also successfully completed the #BottleCapChallenge.

Statham then challenged "Aladdin" director Guy Ritchie, who has yet to respond.
