Pray That James Franco’s Pantless Ice Bucket Challenge Starts A New Trend

james-franco-naked-ice-bucket-challengeJames Franco has accepted the ice bucket challenge to raise awareness for ALS, and if you thought he was going to perform it without a homoerotic or attention-commanding twist, you should probably learn who James Franco is before you read any further.

James joins other celebrity babes including Chris Pratt, Justin Bieber, Matt Bomer and Cristiano Ronaldo in the viral trend, which has used about 5 million gallons of water to raise an estimated $15.6 million for the ALS Association in 30 days.

Oh, he also did it without pants:

James nominates his straight bed buddy Keegan Allen to also post a video of himself, hopefully also pantless, dumping a bucket of water an his head. If we’re lucky, going pantless for the ice bucket challenge will become an unavoidable trend that will force Zac Efron out of his pants for his inevitable ice bucket video.

Before that, Josh Barrowman filmed Colton Haynes taking the challenge in a white t-shirt (read: Colton Haynes wet t-shirt contest):

The ball is in your court, Zac.
