Bottle Flips Takes the World by Storm
A bottle flip is when you flip a bottle and try and land the bottle flat on its bottom or cap. But how did it all start?
Earlier this year, Ardrey Kell High School in Charlotte, North Carolina hosted a talent show. Before then a pupil started bottle flipping in his chemistry class and, with the talent show looming, it gave him an idea.
On the day of school talent show, the teenager flipped a bottle in his act and luckily landed his bottle. The crowd in the background was going crazy, jumping up and down. One person, who was in the crowd watching, caught the bottle flip on camera.
But the craze has its dangers and many schools across the world have banned bottle flipping because teachers thought that children might get injured. Nevertheless, bottle flips are more popular than Pokémon Go and that was very successful.
Reviews are mixed. ‘Terrible Game, it gets boring so quickly and tries to trick you into watching ads, waste of storage, time and life,’ one user said.
In contrast, another commented: ‘I love this game, so clever; a brilliant app to pass time.’
