PETERS – With the bottle cap challenge, at least no one ate laundry detergent

KEEPING UP WITH VIRAL PHENOMENA is not exactly my strength, but it was impossible this week to escape videos of the bottle cap challenge.

In these videos, celebrities set a bottle in the foreground and kick the cap off in slow motion.

The videos are super silly, but also super impressive. I won’t even attempt it, as I have the body control of someone being shocked by a police taser.

More shocking, perhaps, is the sheer number of challenge videos that have made the rounds since the advent of the internet.
