20 of the Best ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Videos

This past week the world has erupted with a flurry of videos featuring various celebrities, non-celebrities and all the people in between getting bucketfuls of ice water chucked over them. The Ice Bucket Challenge is a campaign created with the intention of raising awareness about the relatively little-known disease ALS, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, which is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. It degenerates motor neurons, and when the motor neurons die the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost.

The Ice Bucket Challenge has successfully raised awareness, and money, about a disease that few people were previously familiar with. And it’s been great entertainment in the process. From Bill Gates’ thorough construction of an ice bucket-style guillotine, to the Foo Fighters’ spoof of the classic horror movie Carrie, it has swiftly become an internet phenomenon. We put together a list of 20 of the greatest Ice Bucket Challenge videos to have surfaced off the back of the campaign. A special mention goes out to video number 20, which is something else.
