West Seattle scene: Eddie Vedder’s Ice Bucket Challenge video

Thanks to Philip for pointing this out to us via Twitter – one of the newest celebrity videos in the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS awareness, just published on YouTube today, stars West Seattleite and Pearl Jam leader Eddie Vedder, with the bucket wielded by bandmate Mike McCready. Looks like it was recorded on the West Seattle shoreline, too, as Philip noted in his tweet.

    That is NOT Mike McCready “wielding” the bucket.

    Eddie Vedder has to drive his daughters around listening to One Direction. That’s funny.

    I love how dad’s a rock star and she wants to challenge someone from One Direction. So cute.

    I got a kick out of the One Direction comment in the video as well, too funny. Seattle artists are great, just down to earth. Love this ALS video challenge too, such a simple way to raise awareness and lots of donations.

    Tim McConnell of West Seattle Runner just did one that puts that to shame, think tidy whities and the splits! We heart Eddie Veder!

    If Eddie Vedder can’t keep his daughter away from the evil that is One Direction, I guess I am fine with my son loving Katy Perry. :)

    Matt, Stone, Jeff, what up? McCready challenged all of you. Is Eddie going to be the only one that comes through? Let’s go you guys!

    They’re not Vedder’s kids. Vedder does not have children!

      There’s abundantly available info out there saying he does. Just Google. Or Bing. Or, well, whatever other search engine is still out there …

    I can’t say I listen to much of his music, but always admired his stance as a person. The world could use more of him. Rock on Eddie!!

    I found McConnell’s video at his Facebook https://www.facebook.com/VeronicaDalton?fref=ts Unfortunately there’s not a direct link to the post.

    @ ray it may have been a cheat but it supports a west seattle residents business in downtown seattle Tempus Detailing, so it awesome!

Sorry, comment time is over.
