Benedict Cumberbatch Strips Down for Ice Bucket Challenge
Benedict Cumberbatch finally completed Ice Bucket Challenge after being nominated by Tom Hiddleston, Adelaide Clemens and writer Juno Temple. He got doused five times in a two-minute video posted on YouTube by Moto Neurone Disease Association on Friday, August 22.
In the first scene, Benedict was poured with a bucket of ice while sitting on a wooden bench. After getting drenched, he nominated producer Harvey Weinstein, Kylie Minogue and Lewis Hamilton. In the second scene, the "Star Trek Into Darkness" actor can be seen taking off his pants as he walked into the bathroom. When he was ready to take a shower, he got poured by another bucket of ice just right at his face.
The video continued with the third scene which showed Benedict wearing a suit. In the scene, he was talking on the phone before getting doused with a bucket of ice. In the fourth scene, the star of "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" sat on a motorcycle and brought a helmet. The helmet was actually filled with ice water and when he was trying to put it on, he was once again doused with ice. In the last scene, he was seen running into his car while talking on the phone and suddenly got poured with another bucket of ice.
Other celebrities like Idina Menzel, Tom Hanks and Patrick Stewart also completed the Ice Bucket Challenge. Idina took the challenge in front of her fans after her broadway show "If/Then". Tom completed the challenge by pouring a bucket of ice on himself. Meanwhile, Patrick accepted the challenge in a different way by drinking an ice cold drink instead of pouring it on his head.
