The same cannot be said of Shaky Stephens from Cornwall, United Kingdom, who jumped head first into his bucket while standing several steps up a ladder.

Ice Bucket Challenge With a Little Help From a Canine Friend
A dog is said to be a ’man’s best friend’. Is this still true when said dog pours a bucket of ice over his owner? In this footage, Drew Dinan’s dog Innis does the honours when Dinan accepts the challenge, by tugging a lever to release the bucket. Dinan uses the opportunity to highlight Innis’ canine epilepsy and asks viewers to consider supporting an animal welfare organisation, as well as ALS charities, when performing the challenge.

Jennifer Aurand was using a hose to water the plants in her backyard when she noticed a hummingbird descending onto one of them. She quickly set the hose against a post beside the plant and got out her phone to record. Watch as the tiny bird flies its way from leaf to leaf whilst ruffling its feathers, clearly enjoying the free bath. Credit: YouTube/Jennifer Aurand
