Anderson's ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Is Unusually Brilliant

Mark PattersonUK Staff WriterAugust 20, 2014

We thought we'd seen enough people have ice water poured over them—really, we had. But of all people, Manchester United midfielder Anderson has managed to raise the bar.

There are three key factors at play. 

Firstly, calling out Sir Alex Ferguson to do the challenge next: bold.

Secondly, remember the lifetime of jokes you've heard about Anderson being fat? They don't appear to be so relevant.

And lastly? Shinji Kagawa's reaction when he is nominated to do the challenge next. That we could watch on a loop.
