Video: Jeff Bezos Takes On The Ice Bucket Challenge

At an Amazon all-hands, in front of thousands of employees, Jeff Bezos took on the ice bucket challenge. He was recently challenged by Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella.

He started off with a joke: “I was going to challenge Edward Snowden, but I was afraid [the bucket] would just leak”. He then followed it up with another joke about picking the queen, the pope, and Kim Jong Un (if only). He ended up challenging William Shatner, Patrick Stewart, and George Takei – his childhood heroes (he was a big Star Trek fan).

Just for the record, I moved this post to a date earlier than this video existed, simply so that the blog homepage would not be entirely dominated by Ice Bucket Challenge Articles.

Bill Gates did it better
