The big craze sweeping the internet right now is the "pay it forward" Ice Bucket Challenge charity for ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), aka "Lou Gehrig's Disease." While the charity is definitely worthwhile, it can easily be argued that the viral nature of the Ice Bucket Challenge is reaching the point of burn out. There are even Ice Bucket Challenge Fail video compilations, some of which are pretty hilarious.

Regardless, well over $30 Million dollars has been raised for the fight against this awful disease, so even if we experience a little overexposure, it's for a great cause. Samsung decided to get in on the act too. The above video was posted to their Facebook page. It shows the Galaxy S5 narrating itself taking the Ice Bucket Challenge. The funniest part comes at the end when it calls out some of its rival phones to take the challenge (none of which are water resistant).

The idea of the ad was brilliant. But the execution was horrific. Worst ad I've seen in a long time. I read the title and thought this was going to be awesome. Only to be met with a half-as*** fake ad. Oh well. Good try Samsung.
