David Lynch’s broad sense of humor has always been a bit of an acquired taste, especially when he’s the one on-screen delivering it (recall all those deafness/earhorn jokes in Twin Peaks). This minute-ish video gets the much-discussed ice bucket challenge right, as Lynch is drenched by two buckets — one with coffee added to it for Laura Dern, one straight-up for Justin Theroux — while giving a game stab at playing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” on his trumpet. It ends (spoiler alert?) with a good punchline, as Lynch nominates Vladimir Putin to step up and take the challenge next. No pun intended: it’s bracing.
