Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang has accepted the #BottleCapChallenge, albeit with a spelling error.
The "challenge" calls for participants to place a bottle on a solid surface with the cap loosely twisted on. The participant must then remove the cap by doing a back-spin kick.
On Wednesday, Yang posted a video of himself giving the challenge a go.
Clad in a T-shirt and shorts, the Democratic hopeful is seen in a backyard doing a back-spin kick in slow motion. The cap flies off while the bottle appears to remain on the table.
"Haha #bottlecapchallange accepted," he wrote, misspelling "challenge."
"And my kicking a bottle cap is now one of our best-performing videos ever. Maybe next time I'll break a board with my head."
By Wednesday evening, the post had garnered more than 5,000 retweets and nearly 40,000 likes.
At least one person was meticulous enough to point out the Democrat's spelling mistake.
"We can let the spelling mistake slide since MATH is your strong suit; but this would get much more visibility if you used the #bottlecapchallenge tag," wrote one user. "I need more people to see your amazing skills!"
