Matt Damon Did The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge With Toilet Water

August 27, 2014 Ben Affleck, George Clooney, Tom Brady, Bono, Jimmy Kimmel

We know our first thought was eeeeeewwwwww (& to be honest so was ours).

But after listening to his reasons, it got us thinking too!

“It posed kind of a problem for me, not only because there is a drought here in California, but because I co-founded Water.org, and we envision a day when everybody has access to a clean drink of water,” the Oscar winner said. “There are about 800 million people in the world who don’t, so dumping a clean bucket of water on my head seemed a little crazy.”

“For those of you, like my wife, who think this is really disgusting, keep in mind that the water in toilets in the West is actually cleaner than the water that most people in the developing world have access to,” the Ocean’s thirteen star said. “So as disgusting as this may seem, hopefully it will highlight the fact that this is a big problem and together we can do something about it.”

Then, without much deliberation he thanked his challengers Jimmy Kimmel and Ben Affleck, and dumped the water on his head.

So didn’t he nominate anyone?

After the camera person prompted him, he went on to nominate, “"George Clooney, my favorite actor, Bono, my favorite musician, and Tom Brady, the greatest quarterback of all time."

Now that’s some serious action for a double cause!
