Sir Patrick Stewart shows celebrities how the ALS ice bucket challenge should be done
Sir Patrick took a more understated approach to the challenge
Sir Patrick Stewart has undertaken the most dignified ice bucket to date, showing the raft of celebrities left soaking wet and shivering how such a challenge should be approached.
Sir Patrick begins his video in a hotel room with a bucket of ice and a cheque book placed in front of him.
After signing a cheque for an undisclosed sum of money, he proceeds to select a few cubes of ice and place them in a glass. He then fetches a bottle of whiskey, pours himself a drink, takes a sip and smiles. Ice bucket challenge complete.
Sir Patrick’s understated effort comes after a shocked David Moyes was left whimpering when a bucket of icy water was dumped on his head and a multitude of complete ice bucket fails, where those buckets on others have ended up soaking themselves.
The challenge, lauded as a effective fundraiser by some and dismissed as nothing but a wet T-shirt contest by others, raises money and awareness for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
ALS affects the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons degenerate and die which makes it increasingly difficult to move muscles. There is currently no cure.

Some of the high profile names to take part so far have included Russell Brand, George Bush, Cara Delevingne, Victoria Beckham and Anna Wintour.
The ALS Association announced on Friday that donations had reached $53.3 Million (£32 million).
