Mariah Carey is winning Instagram after taking a stab at the viral #BottleCapChallenge that's been sweeping the Internet.

In case you haven't been keeping up with the online fad, let us fill you in: The challenge basically requires you to upload a video of yourself attempting to side-kick the cap off a bottle, martial-arts style. The challenge was started by UFC champ Connor McGregor and has since been completed by several other celebs including Ellie Goulding.

We'll let her demonstrate:

Mariah Carey decided to take the challenge to completely new heights—at least vocally. (Remember that time Mariah Carey Shared a Gym Selfie Wearing Fishnet Tights and Heels?)

The singer shared her video to Instagram on Sunday. She winds up as if she's about to kick the bottle in front of her. But instead of making physical contact, she sings a super high note, and thanks to some fabulous video editing, the bottle cap flings off the bottle and out of frame. Take a look:

The post has since been flooded with comments applauding her alternative take on the challenge. "Hilarious," her ex-husband, Nick Cannon commented, while Jameela Jamil called Carey "the greatest."

"This is what they call a win," actress Ruby Rose added. Agreed.
