The bottle cap challenge has no doubt consumed the Internet in the last month. Started by legendary Taekwondo fighter Farabi Davletchin back in June, the challenge has seemingly brought every celebrity out of the woodwork to have a go at it.

While many followed the traditional rules of the challenge: place said bottle on the counter, and remove said bottle cap with a clean, efficient roundhouse kick. But others used it as an opportunity to put a unique and hilarious spin on it. Here are the top six participants we feel are worthy of immortal commemoration

Jason Statham

One of the first celebrities to undertake the challenge, Jason Statham's impeccable form and unnecessary seriousness is equal parts hilarious and impressive. Look at that furrowed brow, that posture, that swift form. What a majestic creature he is.

Swae Lee

The singer/rapper is not nearly as agile as some of the other competitors, and it's impressive that he succeeded at all, considering his terrible form and poor execution. Note the pieces of glass flying towards the camera upon contact. It's sloppy work, plus Lee ends the video by giving his audience the middle finger. Like dude, what the f**k? What did we do?

Justin Bieber

Shirtless and frustrated, Bieber mentions that the bottle cap "could be Tom Cruise's head." Not sure why he feels the need to continuously troll Cruise, but we're here for it. As for the execution, the bottle was placed just a little too high, with Bieber no doubt falling at the end of the video. His lanky form could almost not withstand the height, but he still somehow succeeded.

John Mayer

Who knew the pop singer had such flexibility. Judging by what we'd initially expect from Mr. Mayer, his execution was as reliable and enjoyable as Continuum, and judging by the look on his face after the cap's removal, he is no doubt aware and enjoying the hell out of our surprised faces.

Donnie Yen

I mean, it's not even really fair is it? The legendary mixed martial artist took the bottle cap off with a damn blindfold on, and he didn't even need to do a roundhouse to send the cap flying into oblivion. Like, no need to show off dude.

Mariah Carey

Carey's unique twist on the bottle cap challenge is one to remember. Due to some editing magic, the singer blew the cap off the bottle by screaming at it. Did I say screaming? I meant screeching.

Ryan Reynolds

The comedic internet juggernaut and actor one-upped every contender in the challenge. The bottle undergoes an immensely emotional journey in hopes it'll soon be reunited with Reynolds. The bottle succeeds, and Reynolds immediately kills it. We mean he kills the bottle, shattering it into a million pieces before taking off. Reynolds hasn't been seen since.

Is Carole Baskin Inheriting a Haunted "Indian" Burial Ground with Tiger King Zoo?

Current owner Jeff Lowe claims there are bodies, including "a young American Indian boy," buried on the property

It was recently reported that Carole Baskin had been awarded the property of the Tiger King Zoo—formerly the G.W. Zoo—in Wynnewood, Oklahoma after a judgment found in her favor.

As fans of the Netflix docuseries Tiger King will know, her long-standing legal feud with Joe Exotic (AKA Joseph Maldonado-Passage, né Shreibvogel) over his violation of the Big Cat Rescue trademark resulted in a million dollar settlement in her favor. But for the most part Exotic managed to dodge paying Baskin through a series of illegal property transfers that temporarily protected his animal park from seizure.

Now that Exotic is in prison for attempting to have Baskin murdered—along with illegal animal trafficking and several violations of the Endangered Species Act—a judge has finally ruled that the park is hers, and she will be taking over ownership of the 16-acre property later this year. But Jeff Lowe—the park's current owner and the personification of a mid-life crisis—insists that there are no hard feelings, saying, "She deserves this property."
