Ryan Kesler’s Ice Bucket Challenge Involves A Speedo, Penis Pump, Mini Car & Vanilla Ice

It feels like every single day the Internet is declaring a new “winner” of the Ice Bucket Challenge so I’ll refrain from handing out any awards here. I will say, though, that Anaheim Ducks center Ryan Kesler probably has the second-best one I’ve seen from an NHL player, behind only Paul Bissonnette’s.
