While the world goes crazy calling out and nominating people to do the #ALSIceBucketChallenge in the name of ALS/Lou Gehrig’s disease awareness and charity, including some of the world’s top DJs/producers, one producer doesn’t share the same sentiments.

But first, a little education on ALS.


The “Ice Bucket Challenge” was started in July by Pete Frates, 29, a former Boston College baseball player who has been battling ALS since 2011 and it has now become a worldwide craze. It’s actually part of a campaign to raise money in fight against amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a fatal neurodegenerative disease that attacks the brain and the spinal cord.

One such person who has suffered from the disease for many years now is none other than the world’s most celebrated brilliant physicist, Stephen Hawking.

The campaign requires an individual to dump a bucket of ice water on their head. After which, they’re allowed to challenge 3 more people to do the same within 24 hours. If someone refuses, the penalty is donating USD100 to the ALS Association. The stunt has raised millions for ALS so far!

But, deadmau5 has purposely not want to share the same sentiments. Kinda like Charlie Sheen.

Known for his constant back-and-forth of trolling people (so much so that it’s sometimes hard to take him seriously) Toronto-based Joel Zimmerman aka deadmau5 confirmed that he is in no way getting involved with the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Nope, no siree, he ain’t buying it. He took to his Twitter to confirm that, no, he’s not going to dunk a bucket of ice water over himself. But he is, however, donating to the cause.

Big time:

Okay, at least he didn’t go on a complete trolling rampage on this one this time, right?

Oh wait, who are we kidding? He wouldn’t be deadmau5 if he didn’t finish this off on a high note:

Oh well, kudos to you anyway, deadmau5, for doing your part for the ALS Association in your own little special way.

Meanwhile, check out these other ALS Ice Bucket Challenge videos of people who actually did it, which blew our minds:

Let’s not forget that whether or not you get called out to take on the challenge, you can also make a donation to the ALS Association here. If you want to do your part, you know where to go.
