Matt Damon Does Ice Bucket Challenge Using Toilet Water!

Matt Damon Does Ice Bucket Challenge Using Toilet Water!

Matt Damon has completed the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, but as the founder of, he made sure to do it with a little twist to try and conserve water.

“It posed kind of a problem for me,” the 43-year-old actor says in the video. “Not only because there is a drought here in California, but because I co-founded and we envision a day when everyone has access to a clean drink of water and there are about 800 million people in the world he don’t. So dumping a clean bucket of water on my head seemed a little crazy.”

Matt then explained that toilet water where he lives is cleaner than the drinking water many people in the world have access to, so he filled his bucket with water from toilets around his house.

Make sure to watch the video below and find out who Matt nominated for the challenge.

How does that help? It’s still wasting water unless he dumps it over his head while standing over the toilet.
Okay he could stand over plants that need watering.

Ben Affleck nominated him for the Bucket challenge glad to see all three of Ben’s nominations ..done! Wonder what got Matt to do it! Glad to see him promote his the process wonder if he is going to have
His benefit dinner in honor of Water.Org?

Could he have suck up more of the fun from the challenge , what a bore.. As if he doesn’t take daily showers , why didn’t he say he skipped his shower that morning , make a joke about his wife sacrificing too for the challenge or how about he promised to not fill his massive pool for a year.

@Ava: You’re in a good mood today!

Matt Damon, you MUST stop being so AWESOME! I can’t concentrate on the rest of life. So cute, you can hear one of his girls giggling.

That was cool… So, does that mean he doesn’t have a pool?

that doesn’t change anything, I LOVE HIM BUT, he still wasting water and it’s coming from the same pipes than the one we drink it’s just nastier ’cause it’s from where he poops

Seriously, Ava, anybody who could complain about my Matty -boo gloriously upholding three causes simultaneously while wearing his gorgeous smile AND a wet t-shirt needs help. It’s like the end of the rainbow! Not to mention, he is jacked.

Well, well, well @ 08/25/2014 at 3:27 pm

Overpriviledged movie stars asking others to make more daily sacrifices while they’re living the dream in Beverly Hills. GMAFB. How about donating half of your income to those in need of water, food or a cure?

He’s adorable and all but who is he kidding? He’s still wasting water to please the internet. Why people need to see random celebs dump ice water on themselves in order to be generous and help a great cause?
The satisfaction of having made a good deed and nice gesture should be more than enough… What a f├╣cked up world we live in.

I love Matt Damon. He really walks the walk. For those who don’t know, Matt will be a principal speaker at the Clinton Global Initiative this fall. His has provided safe water for hundreds of thousands around the globe and is groundbreaking in it’s approach. Good on ya, mate!

Matt Damon wins!!!

I’d drink sweat from his armpits any day! Who needs clean water when you have ripped Matt around? #noshame

Ewwwwww-yo! Yuck! Pretty brave of him, however, with or without toilet water, I’d still hit that!

who's the filthiest? @ 08/25/2014 at 3:52 pm

Bath water, poop water and breast milk….. No thanks. Please, just give some cash so we can keep watching your movies without being repulsed by your poor personal hygiene.

It’s really pretty mind blowing how much we take for granted. Thanks, Matt you’re a great actor and a noble soul.

Why didn’t he go to the beach and get some water out of the ocean add ice then pour over his head.

He’s done it. Matt Damon just made toilet water sexy.
