Just like Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, and Siwon Choi (of K-Pop idol boy group Super Junior), Hong Kong superstar Andy Lau has decided to take on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge! He was tagged by Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun.
But first, a little education ;)
The “Ice Bucket Challenge” was started in July by Pete Frates, 29, a former Boston College baseball player who has been battling ALS since 2011 and it has now become a worldwide craze. It’s actually part of a campaign to raise money in fight against amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a fatal neurodegenerative disease that attacks the brain and the spinal cord.
One such person who has suffered from the disease for many years now is none other than the world’s most celebrated brilliant physicist, Stephen Hawking.
The campaign requires an individual to dump a bucket of ice water on their head. After which, they’re allowed to challenge 3 more people to do the same. If someone refuses, the penalty is donating USD100 to the ALS Association. The stunt has raised millions for ALS so far!
Andy Lau has taken it to the next level by choosing a topmost level of a building for his video location and attaching a camera to his bucket of ice water. Watch his video here:
Did you hear? He tagged Jay Zhou! Do you think Jay Zhou will take on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge too? We can’t wait to find out!
That was quick! Jay Zhou has done it – beanie and all. Watch:
Three cheers for these kings, yes? We think so!
