If you’ve been on the internet sometime in the past week or two your newsfeed has probably been flooded with videos of people pouring buckets of ice over their heads. This seemingly ridiculous act is called “The Ice Bucket Challenge,” the point of the challenge is to raise money and awareness about ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease.
Once you are nominated you either have to dump a bucket of ice/water over your head or donate $100 to an ALS association. The phenomenon started a couple of months ago, but we all know nothing is cool until a celebrity does it, so here are some of the best celebrity Ice Bucket Challenge videos, enjoy!
