[As a nurse, let me tell you how much I appreciate what the ‘Ice Bucket’ challenge is doing. From spreading awareness and donating money to ALS/Motor neuron disease or the Norwegian association for Muscle Disease ; to other truly worthwhile charities that better the reserch and lives of people living with these kinds of conditions: thank you for taking part. I’ve met and nursed many people living with these conditions and any help they receive is fantastic.
Spread the word, have fun and help people if you can.]
[//Camera shakily being attached to tripod, curses and crumbles as he tries to get it to focus on the large white bucket situated on the end of a small wooden pier - mountains as a backdrop as he finally gets the camera to focus correctly.]
Right. I’m not sure a bucket of ice is anywhere near a challenge, but for a good cause I suppose I’ll join in on the uh, fun? [//grimaces slightly as he wrings of his t-shirt]
Been a while since I’ve stripped on camera… Enjoy the moment people…
However, I figured a bucket was a bit too tame considering it’s pretty cold here all the time. [//he gestures to the fjord behind him and chuckles]
So I’ve decided to one-up my challenge, seeing as my brother couldn’t do more than a bucket of ice.
[//he bends down and picks up the bucket of ice and water, dumping it over himself before taking a step backwards and disappearing off the pier and into the fjord with a large splash.
Muffled laughter can be heard before he manages to crawl back up on the pier, soaking wet but far from cold,]
Well that was my morning swim done with… [//Erik smiles momentarily and shakes some water out of his hair.]
Anyway; I challenge Ludmila ( liachtaschta ), Thea ( havetblomst), Sára ( landkambans ) and Mari ( arcticparadise ) and anyone who smiled or laughed at this video to this, as well as donating to ALS and or other charities.
