Justin Bieber Calls Out Tom Cruise In Bottle Cap Challenge

After a failed attempt at coercing him into a fight, Justin Bieber decided to try and get Tom Cruise to take on the bottle cap challenge. 

The singer first put forward a proposition last month, when, out of the blue, he tagged UFC President Dana White and said he wanted to challenge Cruise in the Octagon.


Unfortunately the Mission Impossible star didn’t take Bieber up on the offer, so the 25-year-old decided to go down a different route.

He completely smashed the bottle cap challenge on Instagram and nominated Cruise to go next:


After suggesting the fight and laying on the trash-talk towards Cruise on Twitter, TMZ report Bieber later admitted he was joking and that the actor would probably ‘whoop [his] ass.’


His original tweet read:

I wanna challenge Tom Cruise to fight in the octagon. Tom if you dont take this fight your scared and you will never live it down. Who is willing to put on the fight? @danawhite ?

However there’s obviously some part of the singer which still wants to best Cruise and the bottle cap challenge is certainly a less violent way to try and go about that.


Though, Bieber did say ‘this could be Tom Cruise’s head’ before kicking the bottle cap into oblivion, so I guess he’s not afraid to get physical.

On the off chance you’ve so far managed to avoid seeing any bottle cap challenge-related videos, allow me to explain. The viral challenge encourages people to get the cap off a bottle without unscrewing it with their hands. Most people have opted to kick the cap off, though Mariah Carey used her voice to get the job done.

Check out Ryan Reynolds’ attempt here:



It’s not clear why Bieber is encouraging this apparent rivalry with Cruise but at least it’s entertaining for us to witness. Admittedly it would be much more entertaining if Cruise got involved, though.

In the caption of the video, the What Do You Mean singer said he nominated his wife Hailey as well as Cruise. Unfortunately the actor doesn’t appear to have an official Instagram account, so we’ll have to rely on word of mouth to get the message to him.

I can’t imagine the bottle cap challenge would be too taxing for Cruise, given all the intricate stunts he’s performed in the past, but we’ll have to just wait and see if he decides to take it on!

If he does, we’d have to hope it would go better than Ryan Reynolds’ attempt.
