Minecraft’s Notch Tackles the Ice Bucket Challenge
Perrson shared his participation in the popular pay-it-forward charity event in a video posted to his personal YouTube channel on Sunday August 17th. The Ice Bucket Challenge, for the uninitiated, is a currently trendy charity activity where-in participants record themselves dumping buckets of ice water over their heads and then nominate others to the do the same. A common stipulation of the challenge is that if the challenge isn’t completed within a day, the nominee has to donate 100 dollars to a charity working toward the end of ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis).
Persson’s video, in turn, followed the famed game maker as he quickly doused himself in ice cold water. He used the video’s description to nominate Cliff Bleszinski, Activision CEO Bobby Kotick and Xbox boss Phil Spencer. Persson himself was nominated by SpaceX CEO Elon Musk.
