Tired of watching your Facebook friends and countless celebrities take the ice bucket challenge to raise awareness for ALS? Yeah, me too. It’s pretty infuriating that so many people are taking the challenge in the name of raising “awareness,” when in fact most of your friends probably aren’t giving to ALS research, or they don’t even know what ALS is in the first—

—Ohmigod, look, it’s Chris Pratt in a wet T-shirt. Never mind what I just said. Long live the ice bucket challenge. 

In the clip, the Guardians of the Galaxy star, who was tagged in videos by Disney CEO Bob Iger and Vincent D’Onofrio, attempts to subvert the challenge by drinking a mini-bottle of Blue Ice Vodka and a bottle of Smirnoff Ice. (Anyone else having uncomfortable flashbacks to getting “iced” by your roommates in college?) Then Pratt’s wife, Anna Faris, and his mother, Kathy, dump a bucket of ice on his head from the balcony above. Nice one, ladies.

You don’t need to know all that, though. You just need to know when you’ll see Chris Pratt in a wet T-shirt. It’s 1:06, guys. You’re very welcome.
