If you haven’t seen videos of the ice bucket challenge yet odds are you don’t own a television or internet connection or are living in some distant solar system that we have yet to discover. In any case, it’s a promotion which is helping raise awareness for ALS, otherwise known as Lou Gherig’s disease.
The challenge is simple: once accepted, you either make a donation for the cause or splash a bucket of ice water over your head. Celebrities and professional athletes have gotten in on it and the phenomenon is now a viral hit. While there’s some friendly ribbing involved in who challenges who, it’s all for a good cause and it’s not a competition.
However if it were a competition, newly acquired Chicago Bears defensive end Jared Allen would be in the lead.
Check out this video he posted to Facebook:
So not only does he challenge all of his former bosses, but he DIVES in, and then gets hit with ANOTHER bucket.
Man, this guy is tough. And possibly insane.
