Let’s Watch Benedict Cumberbatch Get Surprised in the Shower

We’ve seen some fantastic Ice Bucket Challenges. Chris Pratt, with his Ice Vodka/Smirnoff Ice twist, Tom Hiddleston, who was doused in a white T-shirt because he knows what we want, and Brandon Sanderson, who proved unflappable. But then The Man Who Would Be All Khans shows up and out-Ice Buckets them all! First, we have to commend Benedict Cumberbatch on including a simple way for people to donate to ALSA, and foregrounding the purpose of the charity rather than the wackiness. But when he decides it’s time for wackiness, he goes all the way. He was not challenged only once, you see...so there are many, many buckets of ice.

There’s also, um, a shower scene. Check out his video below!

Chris Evans' was better. He let the water chill to "ice cold" and he put on a suit, since raising money for charity is a formal affair.

"who was doused in a white T-shirt because he knows what we want,"

I am not offended and I wouldn't be offended if you said this about a woman but it needs to be pointed out that if certain people said this other certain people would freak the f out.

"First, we have to commend Benedict Cumberbatch on including a simple way for people to donate to ALSA, and foregrounding the purpose of the charity rather than the wackiness."

No kidding, I wonder how many people who dumped water on themselves actually contributed to charity. Maybe this campaign is wildly successful regardless but it seems like little effort is made to actually help the charity. Should be a good case study for people in this field.

@2 - It's raised over $50 million so far...
