Foo Fighters’ Carrie spoof was pretty genius, but renowned producer Rick Rubin just snatched the title for most badass Ice Bucket Challenge. That’s because he didn’t just drench himself with a pail of chilly water, he straight-up took a BATH in a tub of ice.
Rubin, known for his work with Kanye West, Beastie Boys, and Eminem, took the ALS challenge one step further, personally filling a tub with buckets (emphasis: MULTIPLE buckets) of ice before finally submerging himself in it. That can’t be safe … but damn, is it gnarly. I’m feeling hypothermic just writing about it.
Watch it below.
Rubin went on to nominate Frank Ocean, Owen Wilson, and Vincent Gallo. I don’t know about you, but I’d hate to have to follow his act. Also, can you imagine Liam Gallagher doing this? One bucket alone made him curse up a storm.
