Over the course of the year, internet challenges surface on social media as various people flock to complete the task. It’s all an attempt to gain ‘likes’ by one-upping previous posters. Earning a hashtag, the most recent example bubbling to the top of the conversation is the #BottleCapChallenge.

What started as an attempt to somehow delicately unscrew a bottle cap with their foot in the midst of a swift roundhouse kick has now evolved far past the concept. In fact, it has even appeared on the football field. Earlier this week, Kasey Kelleher, the long snapper for the Oklahoma Sooners, pulled off an incredible feat.

In a display of accuracy and control, Kelleher successfully removes the lid of a water bottle from about eight yards away. Meanwhile, the other figure in the video appears to look only at the camera. Needless to say, this completion of the challenge may easily top the competitors in the sports realm. In the same breath, the #BottleCapChallenge has yet to run its course as it will certainly define the summer of 2019.

Will anyone top the feat?
