The #IceBucketChallenge that’s going on all over social media is a Seinfeld episode.
Kramer is in California and everyone is doing the Ice Bucket Challenge. Kramer, being conscious of California’s water drought situation, decides to not participate in dousing himself in ice cold water. He knows that he can’t waste water.
