If you somehow missed it, the internet has been overflowing with the latest weird and pointless social media challenge. Following in the footsteps of the Ice Bucket Challenge and *shudder* Planking, comes The Bottle Cap Challenge.
ICYMI, The Bottle Cap Challenge wants you to kick the lid off a bottle and post your successes – and failures – to social media. At the time of writing I’ve seen precisely three Bottle Cap Challenge videos, and two of them were definitely NSFW and involved genitalia. I don’t recommend looking them up.
Video you'll love from around the web
However, the other one I’ve seen is 100% SFW and is actually a gem of a video, as it features none other than Jade, the iconic butt-kicking fighter from Mortal Kombat 11.
Shared on Twitter by the official Mortal Kombat 11 account, the short clip shows Jade’s super successful take on The Bottle Cap Challenge – though she’s a bit of a cheater if you want to get technical.

Who doesn’t love when game developers get in on a meme or viral social media trend?
Well, apparently some people. Not everyone was impressed with Jade’s challenge, with lots of folks calling out for the team behind MK11 to stop working on memes and to get cracking on DLC for the title.
“Is this what y’all do instead of working on the DLC trailer? Smh,” tweeted one user.
Others asked for fellow players to exercise a little patience.
“All good things come to those who wait. With every passing day work is being done to make the next MK11 Trailer as perfect as possible. I’m on board and my hype won’t dwindle. Whether it’s ‘just’ Nightwolf or the entire KP. Let’s be real and be patient,” said one fan.
And finally there’s this guy, who took the opportunity to show Jade – and the MK11 team – how the challenge really works, and to ask to be added into the game.
Good luck with that.
