David Lynch's Ice Bucket Challenge video is very Lynchian

Coffee, a trumpet, and an unexpected challenge

The camera opens on a man in a fully buttoned black shirt standing in front of a red wall, squinting into the sun. He pours a shot of espresso into a metal bucket, raises a trumpet, and begins to play Somewhere Over the Rainbow, badly. Someone off stage pours the bucket of espresso over the man’s head, followed by a bucket of ice water.

David Lynch’s Ice Bucket Challenge is everything you would hope it to be. He was nominated by Laura Dern and Justin Theroux. I won’t spoil his nominee.
