Latest Ice Bucket Challenge response is just ... gross

Friday August 15th, 2014

Let's be honest. We've all seen our share of responses to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and they're getting a little stale, right? That's not a knock on the participants. There are only so many hours in the day and only so many ways to dump ice water over your head. And in the end, it's the effort to promote awareness of the deadly disease and raise funds that counts.

That said, we've seen a few beauties long the way, including a legendary effort by Paul Bissonnette and a typically well dressed performance from Henrik Lundqvist.

We applaud anyone who tried to go the extra mile for a grin.

But this one is just ... gross.

Steve Oleksy, a 28-year-old defenseman who spent last season riding the shuttle between Washington and AHL Hershey, decided his challenge acceptance had to be a bit loony. His concept: use toilet water for the dousing.

Here's hoping the bathroom where he filmed this was equipped with a shower.
