  • Hey, guys! So recently I did the Ice Bucket Challenge

  • on my second channel, Higa TV.

  • And I'm sure all of you know by now, but for those of you that don't,

  • it's a charitable challenge where you either donate $100 to an ALS charity,

  • or you dump a bucket of ice cold water on your head

  • and you donate $10 instead.

  • And basically, in my video, I did the Ice Bucket Challenge

  • and I donated the $100, plus whatever that video earns

  • is going to be going to the ALS Association.

  • So if you can't afford to donate the $100 or the $10,

  • you can actually just go and view that video and, technically,

  • I think you'd be donating a cent, or a fraction of a cent or something.

  • But anyway, as always, people in this world love to find the negative

  • in everything, especially when it becomes popular.

  • It happens all the time.

  • Once something becomes really popular, people have a tendency

  • to just hate it all of a sudden.

  • Think about it:

  • Remember when planking first came out and it was the coolest,

  • funniest thing you could do, and then, all of a sudden,

  • everybody else started doing it, and it became the lamest thing ever.

  • Or like Justin Bieber. When he was a little kid on YouTube,

  • everyone thought he was the most talented, cutest little kid ever,

  • but once he got signed and made it big, he had more haters than anyone.

  • Now he's kinda generating his own haters because of his actions,

  • but initially it wasn't his fault.

  • Or even when we all used to pee on each other for fun,

  • and then R. Kelly did, and then it was no longer cool anymore,

  • so that's why we stopped, right?

  • That's-That's why we stopped doing that, right?

  • Basically, these people love things when a few people know about them,

  • but once they become popular, it switches.

  • Now, come on. What kind of person does that sound like to you?

  • Get it?

  • I'm stirring...my hips.

  • Hipster. (Bad jokes with Ryan!)

  • Sorry. Back to the topic!

  • In my mind, the Ice Bucket Challenge was, and still is, a positive thing,

  • yet now that it's catching on, it's like the worst thing you can do right now.

  • These people are saying things like:

  • People are only doing this for attention now.

  • Uhh, yeah, that's kinda the point. To gain attention, to raise awareness.

  • Who cares if they're doing it for attention?

  • They're still contributing to the viral trend more than you have!

  • I'm not gonna lie. If I didn't see so many of my friends do it,

  • and so many of you didn't tag me, I would have never known what it was.

  • I didn't even know what ALS was until I heard about this challenge.

  • Yeah, so it might be something stupid to do, but it did bring awareness.

  • People who do the Ice Bucket Challenge are greedy

  • because they don't want to donate $100.

  • Well, first, let me ask all the people who are saying things like this:

  • How much did you donate?

  • What have you done for an ALS charity? What have you done for any charity?

  • I mean, if you donated $100 or more, you have every right to say that.

  • But keep in mind that not everyone who does this challenge

  • is as fortunate enough as you to be able to donate that much.

  • And honestly, sometimes, by doing the Ice Bucket Challenge,

  • you're actually donating more than $100 because of

  • all the awareness and attention it brings.

  • Technically, if one of these videos get a million views,

  • that's like a TV show commercial.

  • Do you even know how much those cost?!

  • I don't know, but I'm sure it's at least in the thousands,

  • which is a very generous donation!

  • People shouldn't be doing this because the Ice Bucket Challenge

  • is a waste of water. Meanwhile, in Africa...

  • This is probably the biggest and most legit argument

  • that people have with this challenge.

  • And, yeah, I'm not even gonna argue here.

  • You DO waste water in this challenge.

  • But if you're fortunate enough to have a computer, or have internet access,

  • and you're able to watch these videos, I'm pretty sure

  • that you've wasted water before and it wasn't even for charity.

  • I'm 99% sure that every single person watching this video,

  • and myself, are able to waste a little bit of water every single day,

  • and we do it whether we want to or not.

  • But don't pretend like you grew up in a third world country

  • and you've never wasted food, water, or anything before.

  • If you're complaining about wasting a little water for charity,

  • then you'd better be peeing and pooping in your shower

  • every single night, because flushing a toilet wastes way more water

  • than the Ice Bucket Challenge, and that's not even for charity!

  • But yeah, no, wasting water for your comfort

  • is much more important than charity.

  • In fact, if you're that concerned over water,

  • you shouldn't even be showering every single night.

  • We should only be showering when you absolutely have to,

  • or if you're really sweaty.

  • And, also, you'd better be getting dirty and sweaty by accident,

  • from natural causes, because--guess what--

  • if you're working out, you're also wasting water.

  • You're burning unnecessary calories, which causes your body heat

  • to rise, and because of homeostasis, you start to sweat.

  • And because of that sweat, you get thirsty.

  • And because you get thirsty, now you have to drink water.

  • That's your fault.

  • So for all you lazy people out there that don't work out, thank you...

  • for saving the planet.

  • And, also, for all the people wondering why the Ice Bucket Challenge?

  • Why did this challenge start with ice water instead of just donating?

  • The sad truth is nobody would've watched, let alone share a video,

  • of someone just donating, and trying to raise awareness,

  • by talking about it.

  • The Ice Bucket Challenge is what made it share-able. It made it a trend.

  • It was taking those other challenge videos that people just watch

  • for entertainment purposes, and making it charitable.

  • That's right. Again, for charity!

  • Nobody got mad about the waste of cinnamon for the Cinnamon Challenge.

  • Third world countries need spices too!

  • With all that being said, to anyone who's actually done

  • the Ice Bucket Challenge and donated, despite all the negativity

  • you might be getting now, I still believe this is a wonderful trend

  • and a great cause, and thank you so much for doing it

  • and continuing to spread this campaign.

  • I still support it 100%.

  • If you're in a place that's in a drought, or someplace that water is scarce,

  • I completely understand your concern for saving water.

  • But rather than hating in the comments section,

  • which does nothing but bring negativity, why not just find a solution?

  • Or compromise.

  • I mean, there's still ways you can do the challenge without wasting water.

  • My friend Jeremy Lin just did it by throwing himself into the ocean.

  • And if you're still really that concerned over saving a bucket of water,

  • I'm going to help you out right now by starting this new campaign

  • called the #SaveWaterPeeInTheShower campaign.

  • Every single time you have to pee, you pee right into the drain

  • of your shower, but you don't wash it down until the end of the night

  • when you take a shower, so it all washes together at once.

  • That's three to four flushes a day you'll be saving,

  • depending on how much you pee.

  • Or I suppose you could do it the other way around and pee

  • into a toilet all day, and then when you finally flush it at the end of the night,

  • you just get in there and start washing yourself.

  • There's a lot of different solutions.

  • So rather than just spreading negativity around the Ice Bucket Challenge,

  • let's be positive.

  • Let us find a solution together and keep it growing.

  • Let us save water together.

  • Let us spread positivity together.

  • Let us pee in the shower together!

  • Lettuce!!

  • That way, we can do both.

  • Continue to raise funds and awareness for ALS, and save water

  • in the grossest way together.

  • This message was brought to you by

  • the #SaveWaterPeeInTheShower association.

  • I've got it! What if we combined the two, and pee into a bucket

  • all day and then do the Pee Bucket Challenge

  • and pour it all over--

  • That is disgusting, R. Kelly. Nobody wants to do that.

  • I mean, we're not doing it. Right, Biebs?

  • Man, I've been peeing in buckets before it was cool.

  • TEE HEE!

  • So thank you guys again so much for watching.

  • If you want to see last week's video, click the one on the left.

  • If you want to see our Ice Bucket Challenge video,

  • click the one on the right.

  • And, remember, every single cent that that video earns

  • goes to the ALS association, so thank you so much for watching

  • and make sure you click to donate...pretty much.
