Would you dump toilet water over your head?
The viral Ice Bucket Challenge that’s raising funds for ALS has made its way to Matt Damon. The actor, however, doesn’t just pour regular water over himself. Damon, instead, fishes out water from every toilet bowl in his house. Sounds disgusting? Yes. But his explanation actually makes sense.
“[The challenge] posed kind of a problem for me, not only because there is a drought here in California but also I co-founded Water.org and we envision a day when everybody has access to clean drinking water… so putting a clean bucket of water on my head seemed a little crazy,” said Damon.
He continued, “For those of you, like my wife, who thinks this is really disgusting, keep in mind that the water in our toilets in the west is actually cleaner than the water that most people in the developing world has access to.”
We’ll give you this one Matt Damon.
Watch the video.
Though he’s loved by many, although I’ll never understand why, there are some who don’t like Justin Bieber. And now we’re learning that Bill Hader from “Saturday Night Live” didn’t enjoy working with the singer when he was a guest on the show. Hader tells “The New York Post” that Bieber was “the only one who lived up to the reputation. I think that’s the only time I felt that way in eight years.”
That doesn’t surprise me.
