Another day, another ice bucket.

Today, we have Aerosmith joining in the fun, with a full-band “ALS dump” from their performance last night in Texas, after being nominated by Mötley Crüe.

Frontman Steven Tyler starts out the clip by getting the audience pumped up to be on the video, with guitarist Joe Perry announcing that “every ticket bought, a part of that is going to the ALS Foundation, too.”

Roadies then feverishly prepare the band to be soaked in near-freezing water, removing electrical equipment from the clothing.

After the ice bucket drenching concludes, drummer Joey Kramer looks the most horrified of the five by the experience, while Tyler doesn’t seem phased one-bit, fueling speculation that the years of rock and roll living have left him with a complete loss of physical sensation in his body.

Who’s next? Aerosmith calls out a pretty random assortment of folks: Quentin Tarantino, Fleetwood Mac, Cheap Trick, the Dali Lama, and both their road crew and opening act Slash’s. Where this river of joy will end is anyone’s guess.
