  • It’s really for a great causeALS, otherwise known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. I read that they have the...this challenge has now raised over 4.4 million dollars.

  • Umm and the creators of the really ingenious and they deserve a lot of credits.

  • Ummso anyway I decided yeah~ of course I’m gonna accept such this challenge. Then the question is who am I gonna challenge

  • It’s a very important question not want to be taken lightly. So I started asking friends, colleagues, everybody I ran into for suggestions yesterday.

  • And I sort of get a lot of really good suggestions. the..the enter one. The first suggestion I thought
...okay, we are done.

  • This is it. It does not gonna get better than this. Go ahead! Put up where...

  • ...obviously, Edward Snowden.

  • So obvious. But then I started thinking but..but wait, you know, if he takes ice bucket challenge, we'll just leak.

  • So we had toso we had to keep thinking. Went back to the drawing board and so the… I was talking to people and they said you know you got to think bigger.

  • Gotta think bigger Jeff. And I thought what do you have in mind. And they suggest we all think that this is kind of obvious.

  • The Queen and the Pope!

  • So I got pretty excited about that. And..but then I thought this will never work. These people wear hats. So..so I had to..I had to give up on that ideas as much as I loved it.

  • We kept brainstorming. And then finally, somebody suggested what I thought would be assured fire winner. Go ahead, bring that up on the screen.

  • Kim Jong Hoon

  • I mean, really, that would be incredible. It combines everything one might hope for in somebody to challenge for the ALS ice bucket challenge. So I'm very excited about this.

  • But then unfortunately somebody pointed out it would actually be very difficult to even get the message to him. Cause he’s just not big on twitter or facebook. He’s just doesn’t really like it.

  • umm so anyway at the end of the day, I decided I would just go super personal, go way back into the past to some true childhood heroes in the real passion mind-space.

  • And I am going to challenge, go ahead, William Stewart and Patrick Stewart and George Takei!!!

  • Guys, you have 24 hours to accept the ice bucket challenge! Thank you and I'll see you next time.
