Our Favorite Celebrity Ice Bucket Challenges
There’s no question that the Ice Bucket Challenge has taken social media by storm this month with millions of people dumping buckets of ice on themselves all in the name of charity. It’s all to raise awareness of Lou Gehrig’s disease with more than $13.3 million donated to the ALS Association so far (compared to $1.7 million during the same time last year), according to Buzzfeed.
Even dozens of celebrities have gotten in on the Ice Bucket Challenge and are nominating their famous friends to up the ante. Below, we rounded up a few of our favorite celebrity videos to take the chilling challenge so far.
Charlie Sheen: The warlock took a different approach to the challenge by dumping hard cash instead of ice on himself.
Lady Gaga: Like the avant garde artist she is, Gaga didn’t even say a word, but you can see it in her eyes that it was cold.
Chris Pratt: The Parks & Recreation actor posted his Ice Bucket Challenge video on Facebook last week after being challenged twice, and gets a cold surprise from above from his wife Anna Faris and her friend.
Jimmy Fallon: Comedian Rob Riggle, Horatio Sanz, The Roots and Fallon all take the challenge together.
Oprah Winfrey: Challenged by Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Tyler Perry and Nancy O’Dell, Oprah really stepped up the challenge by nominating her friends Steven Spielberg, Dame Helen Mirren and Manish Dayal.
Bill Gates: The Microsoft CEO made a crazy contraption to pour the water on his head.
