The team at Modernist Cuisine has raised the bar on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge by filming it in slow motion.
In this phenomenal video below, every drop of water seems to be suspended in the air as a giant mass before it soaks Nathan Myhrvold from head to toe. The video starts off with the chef explaining the meaning behind the challenge and then goes on to feature 30 glorious seconds of an icy shower.
Myhrvold was nominated for the challenge by Jerry Hancock, founder of Subzero Ice Cream. The chef goes on to challenge author Harold McGee, Tim Ryan, president of the Culinary Institute of America (who was also challenged by Thomas Keller) , and Tim Zagat, founder of Zagat.
Take a look:
What do you think? Did the team at Modernist Cuisine trump René Redzepi's ice bucket challenge?
