Tired Of The Ice Bucket Challenge Yet? This Guy Will Change Your Mind

Anthony Carbajal brings the stark reality of the disease to light.

Our social feeds over the past week or so have been a veritable carnival of celebrities taking the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge — pop stars, former presidents and actors gleefully dumping freezing water over their heads in the name of fighting Lou Gehrig’s disease.

By now, you might be a bit sick of all the fanfare, but if you watch one more ice bucket video this week, you should probably watch Anthony Carbajal’s.

26-year-old Carbajal’s contribution to the trend begins with disarming silliness — the man cavorts around in a bikini, writhes on a car, and sports a pair of pink booty shorts bearing the words, “Kiss My ALS.”

That’s right, MY ALS.

The bizarre hilarity of the first section of the video belies what’s to come, which is a heartbreaking speech by the young man about the horrors of the disease, which killed his grandmother, afflicted his mother and, recently, took hold in Carbajal himself.
