The talents required to succeed don’t necessarily have to involve the glutes. Mariah Carey turned the contest up to eleven when she used her famous voice to uncork her target, opting for a high note as opposed to a high kick.

Whatever the case, creativity and physical prowess certainly play a part in these unscrewing tactics. To twirl around and accurately kick anything isn’t as easy as some of these partakers make it seem.

The bottle cap challenge is viewed by some as another excuse to get attention. Those against it state that while the challenge doesn’t involve eating detergent, it’s still incredibly inane. Internet challenges come and go. While this one is currently on fire, within a month it’ll be as passé as the cinnamon challenge

One of the biggest bottle cap critics is none other than Snoop Dogg himself. DJ Snoopadelic took to Instagram to explain his distaste. He’s ultimately saying participants look absurd amidst rather colorful language.

Some tweeters point out that those engaging in such trends should spend their time making a real difference instead. This camp points out the challenge does damage the planet on some level. Kendall Jenner received flack for kicking her cap into the ocean. Outraged viewers claimed she was contributing to environmental harm, something Jenner refuted by explaining the cap was “recovered.”
