Sir Patrick Stewart Shows How ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Should Be Done
Sir Patrick Stewart decided it was his turn to take the ALS ice bucket challenge, but decided to do it completely different.
The actor begins his video in a hotel room with a cheque book placed in front of him. He writes out a cheque for an undisclosed sum of money, then pushes the cheque book to one side before drawing a silver ice bucket into view. He proceeds to select a few cubes of ice and place them into a glass before pouring himself a shot of whiskey, takes a big sip and smile. The 74-year-old actor doesn’t utter a single word throughout the video. Ice bucket challenge done.
The rules of the ALS ice bucket challenge is simple, donate money towards fighting ALS or dump a bucket of ice on your head. The challenge, praised as an effective fundraiser by some but dismissed as nothing but a wet t-shirt contest by others, does raise money and awareness for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
