If the Ice Challenge hasn’t yet hit its peak, it’s only a matter of time before we run out of people who haven’t doused themselves in ice water, paid money to get out of doing it or made a status update about how stupid the trend is, despite the millions of dollars that it’s raised.

Unlike previous fads, like selfies and “Frozen,” its impossible to argue that the Ice Bucket Challenge hasn’t has a positive impact on the world, but the reality is that it’s only a matter of time before it gets beaten into the ground like every other trend before it.

Part of that positive impact has to do with the funds and awareness raised for ALS, but it’s also provided the world with an incredible amount of entertainment thanks to people who tried to do the Ice Bucket Challenge, but somehow managed to screw it up.

I’ve previously posted a few of these in video form, but they’re infinitely more enjoyable on repeat for eternity. The Ice Bucket Challenge might be getting a little old, but I don’t know if I’ll ever get tired of watching people screw it up.

The cap was on the Jameson, but that other part wasn’t staged
