Pretty much every famous person you can think of has done this – from President George W. Bush to Oprah Winfrey to Bill Gates to Chris Pratt. And, of course, everyone’s favorite Brit of the moment, Benedict Cumberbatch. Who, quite frankly, may have done the most epic take on the challenge yet.
Cumberbatch douses himself with water no less than five times, and there’s a motorbike involved and his shower makes an appearance, among other things. Yeah, so, game on, rest of the world.
Several other notable British celebrities have also taken part in this viral charity effort this week including Tom Hiddleston, Matt Smith, Luke Evans, Rupert Graves, Robert Pattinson and more. In the interest of fairness, it seems wise to present them to you as well, so that we may better judge whose is really the best.
Hiddleston appears to have shot his video in his backyard garden:
Evans, on the other hand, seems to have put his together outside his trailer during a film shoot:
Doctor Who star Smith was incredibly enthusiastic:
Pattinson took on his challenge sans bucket, but with plenty of help from friends:
Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner did hers in a hotel shower:
Soccer legend David Beckham did his shirtless:
Sherlock star Graves seems to have been slightly confused about the point of the challenge, but was apparently really eager to dump water on himself:
