What is the Bottle Cap Challenge?
The Bottle Cap Challenge is a viral trend that started sometime in June 2019. While the origins of the trend are uncertain (though The New York Times credits taekwondo champion Farabi Davletchin with jump-starting the challenge), the feat itself is fairly straightforward: Participants try to remove the cap from a bottle in extravagant ways, usually using martial-arts-style kicks.
The challenge is particularly popular on Twitter and Instagram, and most videos are accompanied by #BottleCapChallenge. It has also spread on other social media sites, notably Reddit, and numerous celebrities have participated.
So, how are people kicking the caps off of bottles? Most loosen the caps so they’re barely on the bottle in the first place. To prevent the bottle from falling over, participants usually secure the bottle (or have a friend hold it, slightly off camera).

That was a response to musician John Mayer’s successful attempt.
Of course, this being the internet, people have been putting their own twists (no pun intended) on the feat. Mariah Carey took part in the challenge with this (somewhat dubious) video.
We’re not acoustic scientists, but a human voice can’t really...do that. Some challenge attempts are less successful than others, as actor Ryan Reynolds showed.
Unsurprisingly, the #BottleCapChallenge hasn’t come without a little internet controversy. Twitter users recently pounced on Kendall Jenner for taking the challenge at sea, depositing a plastic cap into the water—Jenner did say, however, that the cap was recovered.
Rap legend Snoop Dogg posted a profanity-laced tirade on Instagram, asking, in so many words, why people are engaging in such tomfoolery.
We have no idea, Snoop. Our advice: Don’t worry about it. Either you enjoy this trend, or you don’t—and if it’s not your thing, nobody’s forcing you to participate.

This will differ depending on the type of bottle. Even though the capacity of the bottles may be the same (2 L), the design of the bottle and therefore the cap used will be different.

It depends on how much pressure (C02) has built up within the bottle and what the bottle is made out of (plastic will produce more 'fizz' than glass. They would mostly produce the same, the bottle cap just releases all pressure at once while the twist off releases air slowly which changes the pressure gradually.
