Someone Finally Used a Drone to Complete the Ice Bucket Challenge

You're looking at HISTORY.

You're looking at history. Sure, these three bros may've filmed their Ice Bucket Challenge with a drone, but Austin Hill, seen above, took it one step further: He had a flying robot complete the challenge for him.

Say what you will about the ALS awareness campaign, now a bonafide cultural sensation and, increasingly, the stuff of think pieces and social feed debates. But that's some decent lift there on Hill's hexacopter. Really, it was only a matter of time before someone harnessed the power of a drone to dump perfectly fresh water on their head.

Coming up next, Jeff Bezos will dispatch a swarm of Amazon Prime Air drones (that's if they ever get off the ground) to your next office party, where everyone walks away an icy winner.
