Rick Rubin’s Ice Bucket Challenge is seriously badass

on August 26, 2014, 1:45pm

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.

To see more artists (Drake, Pearl Jam, Kendrick Lamar, Disclosure) take on frigid waters all in the name of ALS awareness, head here.
