Dave Grohl Does Carrie
Since we've already seen a whole slew of videos in which celebrities tried the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS, and YouTube has a couple of million other such videos, it now takes a very special video to rise above the pack. I think this one accomplished that goal.
Dave Grohl was challenged to have a bucket of ice dumped on his head, but the Foo Fighters take it a step further, by recreating the most iconic bucket-spilled-on-head movie scene in history. Grohl stars as Carrie White in Stephen King’s 1976 horror film Carrie, with every frame designed to mirror the original. I was kind of hoping they’d go ahead and do the rest of the movie, but I guess the destruction was too expensive. After all, these challenges also include a monetary donation to the ALS Association. They’ve raised $22 million so far! (via Viral Viral Videos)
