Make it so! Patrick Stewart puts other bucket challenges on ice

Patrick Stewart moved on to the final frontier of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge on Friday, boldly going where no other challenger has gone before. His simple and classy video speaks for itself.

Without saying a word, Stewart's challenge both puts the donation portion of the gesture up front, and also doesn't waste water, a criticism some have leveled against the challenge due to severe drought conditions in California and other areas.

Stewart is seen quietly writing out a donation check for an undisclosed amount, then contemplating a hotel ice bucket before using it for its intended purpose, and instead icing his drink. Cheers!

"Now THAT's an ice-bucket challenge I could go for," wrote Joyce Donahue in the YouTube video comments.
