Of course there are blueprints.

Ever wonder how you would retire if you were a billionaire? For Bill Gates, his retirement has turned into a full-time job as a humanitarian. The man who’s currently worth $80 billion has been working tirelessly to fight malaria and polio worldwide with his charity, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Even with his busy schedule, Mr. Gates is more than willing to take out the time to promote another equally worthy cause. He doesn’t just grab his nearest Lumia 1020 to film it, however. He does it with style and professional quality.

He’s helping promote the ALS Association, an organization that’s dedicated to fighting and finding a cure for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, more popularly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, via the “ice bucket challenge.” And the cause has taken over the Internet. 

The video undermarks his dedication to making truly high-quality viral content. We at the Daily Dot salute his efforts to bring a higher class of viral video to the Internet landscape.
