The video, shot by Pete Moss, starts off in the usual style with nominations and buckets of ice water but quickly escalates, culminating in a unique twist by way of a tractor, a water hose and a steep hillside.

The social media craze has swept the world in the past few weeks, with celebrities, politicians, sports stars and other participants nominating two or three other people to accept the challenge of having ice cold water poured on their head.

Since the challenge craze began, charities around the world have seen a massive leap in donations.

In the US the ALS association received close to £100 million in just one month, while the British foundation for MND research has also seen an incredible rise in donations, with almost £3 million being raised within a similar time period.
