Later, Hollywood star Jason Statham took up the challenge and nailed it perfectly. Doing the challenge with utmost perfection, he shared the video on Instagram and wrote, "bottle cap challenge. Challenge accepted Errolson Hugh. This thing landed on my head from John Mayer but will quickly go to a couple of fellas we've seen do push-ups badly. All yours Guy Ritchie and jmoontasri."
