BOTTLE CAP CHALLENGE: Action movie star Jason Statham (above) does not back down from any confrontation.

So when singer John Mayer issued a dare to take part in the #bottlecapchallenge, Statham, 51, accepted, posting a video online on Monday of his athletic agility and fast reflexes.

The challenge, which has become a viral sensation, requires removing a loosely-twisted-shut cap from a bottle - which is placed on a solid surface - with a spin kick.

Mayer, 41, had on Sunday put up a video of his successful legwork. In the caption for his video, Statham wrote: "This thing landed on my head from @johnmayer but will quickly go to a couple of fellas we've seen do push-ups badly. All yours @guyritchie and @jmoontasri."

Guy Ritchie, 50, is a movie director and James Moontasri, 31, is a mixed martial arts fighter. Mayer has since posted that he got a big kick out of Statham's feat.
