Not only did he agree to pour ice cold water on himself once, he did it five times and at five different circumstances.
In the two-minute clip, the "Sherlock" actor was featured sitting on the ground awaiting the ice cold bucket of water to be poured on him.
"I've been nominated to take the Ice Bucket Challenge by Tom Hiddleston. Please text and donate generously... and bring a bucket," he said.
In the first part of the video, Cumberbatch was featured fully clothed as he accepted the ice bucket challenge. In the second video, he was featured on his way to the bathroom and along the way, he stripped off his clothes and went commando, US Weekly reported.
The third part of the video featured the actor in his black suit while talking to someone on the phone. From out of nowhere a guy comes in and pours water on him.
In the fourth video, Cumberbatch could be seen riding his motorcycle. As he was about to wear his helmet, the witty actor accidentally poured water on himself that was already inside the helmet.
Of course, this wasn't really enough so someone else had to pour another bucket of ice cold water on him.
Last but not the least, Cumberbatch was also featured running quickly to ride his car, with his clothes in tow. And once again, out of nowhere someone tricked him and poured ice water on his entire body, The Star noted.
ALS' Ice Bucket Challenge has been done by more than a hundred celebrities in Hollywood. The challenge was created to help raise awareness and cure of ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease.
