After being nominated to do the Ice Bucket Challenge by fellow Brit Tom Hiddleston, actor Benedict Cumberbatch did his part to the nth degree.

Benedict was douses SIX times with ice water in various stages of undress, including while he’s naked in the shower.

“Bring on the bucket,” Cumberbatch said as the cold water is poured over him.

Cumberbatch’s ice bucket challenge is all in aid of helping to raise awareness and money in support of ALS also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease and Motor Neurone Disease, a condition that attacks the spinal cord.

Watch Benedict’s video above, then watch Anthony Carbajal’s video below. He was recently diagnosed with ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or Lou Gehrig’s disease).
