The Polish Machine created the Ice Bucket Machine.

You know the drill by now: Person about to get drenched with icy water nervously talks into a camera, listing a name or names of those who have nominated them for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and in turn those who they nominate. Wizards center Marcin Gortat's video was no different except that he went down the inventor route.

"Here we are, Ice Bucket Challenge," a seated Gortat says in a video which appears to be shot at a loading dock somewhere. "I've been nominated by so many people I decided to create Ice Bucket Machine."

Gortat mentioned Tommy Sheppard, Wizards senior vice president of basketball operations, among those who nominated him. The Polish Machine also put various people on the clock including Poland's Ambassador to the U.S. and used the hashtags #IceBucketMachine and #ALSIceBucketChallenge. Unless he's behind the camera, Gortat's pal Usain Bolt is not in the mix

By the way, at the end of the day, the point of all of these videos is about donating money and bringing attention to a worthy charity. For those interesting in donating whether you're challenged or not, here's the link to the ALS Association's website.
