SL Video: The "Ice Bucket Challenge" Comes to Second Life

By now, most of you have probably heard of the "Ice Bucket Challenge," people dumping buckets of ice water over their heads while recording it on video as a way to promote awareness of the disease ALS and donating money to research of it. Having gone viral, numerous personalities have taken the challenge, including Bill Gates, former President George W. Bush, Hulk Hogan, and Kermit the Frog. For ALS research, the challenge has been a great success with many times their normal total coming in.

It was probably only a matter of time before the challenge reached Second Life.

Tadeu Gartner's video is in Brazilian Portuguese, but the message is clear.

Do any of you the readers want to follow suit? Come up with your own "Ice Bucket Challenge" video, and if we like it, we'll show it here. And if you do a real-life one, please include your avatar name. Oh, and if you're from California, you might want to do an SL video only as the authorities are not too happy about anyone there doing the challenge in the middle of a drought.
