The 501st Answers the Ice Bucket Challenge in an Epic Way


Ice Bucket Challenge

Thus many people have become annoyed at another meme that will be forgotten in a couple of weeks, despite the money it’s earned for charity.

Star Wars group the 501st Legion was nominated for the Ice Bucket Challenge, and answered the nomination in a pretty awesome way. Instead of one person being doused with ice, they put together a video of many Imperials and Sith having ice water poured over them:
