Remember the bottle cap challenge? The viral trend that involved roundhouse kicking the lid of a bottle, managing to spinning it off with an expert flick of the foot? Well, the inimitable Steve-O also had a go - but rather than his foot, he used something else, as you can see here:
Although - in fairness - the Jackass star did nail the #BottleCapChallenge, he had to up the ante a bit, following in the footsteps of other celebrities who were clearly bored s***less during the first lockdown of 2020.
Kendall Jenner completed her attempt from a jet ski, while actor Zhao Wenzhuo decided to go for not one but THREE bottle caps.
Mariah Carey did it with her voice. Some rich dude did it with a neon car.
Then Steve-O came along.
Ever the non-conformist, the 45-year-old chose to shun the theatrics of jet skis and wakeboards, and instead called on the assistance of something altogether simpler. Yep, his willy.
Posting a clip of his stunt to social media, he wrote: "Nothing but d***! #JustTheTip."
While some people found themselves asking what the hell they'd just witnessed, many fans congratulated Steve-O on the success of his unorthodox attempt.
One Twitter user commented: "You win the #bottlecapchallenge, well done sir."
Another wrote: "Only Steve-o can get away with this."
A third added: "This wins it all."
Condom brand Trojan even piped up, offering the prankster some sage advice:
The challenge went viral among celebs after UFC fighter Max Holloway accepted the challenge from Errolson Hugh, before passing the baton on to John Mayor who, in turn, tagged Jason Statham.
You catch the drift, I'm sure.
Ellie Goulding later joined in to help show the blokes how it's done, writing on Instagram: "This challenge is way too much of a [sausage] fest for my liking."
Nominating the likes of Stella McCartney and Cara Delevingne to join the club, Goulding also took the opportunity to highlight the war on plastic, writing: "STOP USING PLASTIC BOTTLES SUCKERS."
Meanwhile, Ryan Reynolds offered up the perfect example of the Instagram-vs-reality dilemma, sharing his very own Bottle Cap Challenge fail.
In the video, the actor takes on the challenge fearlessly, but the bottle of gin (his own brand, obvs) goes flying.
Sure, it's more of a publicity stunt for Aviation gin than a genuine attempt at the viral challenge, but also a firm reminder that even the A-listers aren't perfect.
