Marco Materazzi's ice bucket is cooler than yours

That's right, 'cooler'. We're so funny.

You remember Marco Materazzi, right? Non-nonsense Italy defender, all-round hero, once got headbutted by Zinedine Zidane in a World Cup final? Anyway, he's decided to follow in the footsteps of the world and Wayne Rooney's wife by throwing a bucket of ice water over his head in the name of charity.

Except Marco Materazzi is better than you, so he used the Champions League trophy:

That's right. The European Cup that he just happened to have lying around.

You have questions? Yes, that is a Zidane shirt he took off at the beginning, and yes, that is Zidane he nominates at the end. But no, we have no idea what's going on with that person -- person? inflatable thing? weird puppet? -- next to him. Some mysteries are beyond even us.
