Before we dive in further down, let me help the readers who are reading this article understand better about what is Bottle Cap Challenge all about and why is it viral.
What Is Bottle Cap Challenge?
Bottle Cap Challenge is a ‘Roundhouse’ kick trick performed by a Taekwondo (Martial Art) specialist and coach named Farabi Davletchin who lives in Kazakhstan.
The challenge is to take off the lid (only) of a closed bottle placed in front of you without displacing the bottle. The kick trick that has been used by the coach is “roundhouse” kick. It is a stuff that cannot be performed by many people like me without the skills but at the same time, it is not something impossible.
Here is a video of the challenge performed by a friend named Matthew for you to understand better. He is an Entrepreneur and also a Martial art practitioner. I take this moment to thank him for allowing me to post his video on my blog. You can also connect with him via his Instagram page Matt.syden

These instances tell that anything can go viral and trending in quick time. Be it good/bad.

My Plea To The Celebrities
Dear people, please note that my intention is not to hurt and degrade anyone. It is your right to do things based on your interest. I respect you all as an individual, for your skills, efforts that you take and it is a treat for my eyes to watch you on screen.
But, when you can perform acts that can be viral videos, why not do some of the things towards the points we had discussed above as well?
You are so influential and you know that. When you can be an inspiration to your followers around the world towards the benefit of the world too, why not give it a shot?
According to me, if your act can ignite a fire in the hearts and transform even a single person towards more meaningful action, then, that would be one among the best things that you had done in your life.
Maybe you are already doing some of the kind acts without any publicity but the world has changed. If you want to bring in difference for something good, then shout about it.
Here is a popular quote by Steuart H Britt on advertising but I strongly believe that this quote is relevant for all the good deeds we do especially when it can bring a change in the people around the world.
My Plea To Every Social Media User
Please… Please think before you make a comment or share anything on social media. Have Fun but at the same time help good and meaningful things reach more people by sharing it on the web rather than making things that are of least priority and not beneficial to the society go viral.
I am not a 100 % perfect person to say all these but I would work towards reaching that percentage. Hope you are able to get why I insist.
Let us all stand to make the world a better place to live. Let us work towards going green, save the earth and the valuable naturals resources which are already in stake.
