Although it was nice that the pop star theoretically wanted to help raise money for the ALS Association, he missed two key pieces of the challenge -- the ice and the bucket.
In the video he posted on Instagram, Bieber clearly uses a pot filled with water instead of a bucket filled with a mixture of water and ice.
People took notice.

LOL so both of @justinbieber's ice bucket challenge videos show him pouring water over his head, with no ice... In both videos.— Haileyن (@haileymezy) August 18, 2014
One reason (of many) why I detest Justin Bieber: Ice Bucket Challenge ... no ice used!! What a wimp & cheater!— Ann Monomous (@abolishthegreed) August 18, 2014
Justin Bieber did the ice bucket challenge twice but there ain't no ice in either bucket— (@jennifertraaan) August 18, 2014
