6 signs people's ice bucket challenges are totally out of control

Not the donations. Just the CRAZY VIDEOs.

THE ICE BUCKET challenge has been with us for two weeks now, and shows no signs of going anywhere.

Today, the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association announced that it had raised one million euro in donations – a phenomenal success for an organisation that relies heavily on public support.

But the people doing the challenge? You guys are OUT OF CONTROL.

Here are the signs:

1. These Irish lads filling an entire family car with cold water… while they’re sitting inside

It involved Dan O’Brien, James Gaule, John Keneally and Chris Roche. Watch Kilkenny man Eamonn Power’s full video on Facebook here.

2. This guy PROPOSING to his girlfriend during her ice bucket challenge

And then dumping water over her anyway

The 51-year-old Belgian man was standing at an airfield in Catalonia, Spain when his pal dropped the giant load of water. He is now recovering in hospital.

Someone working at the airport told The Local: “They obviously miscalculated how much water it was.”

4. This guy doing the ice bucket challenge with a shotgun

5. This NHL ice hockey player who flew a helicopter to a mountain range, used it to pick up a load of water from a glacier lake, and then had it dumped over his head

Plus filmed it all in HD with a swanky soundtrack.

6. And this guy who did it with his own urine.

He writes: “Yes, it’s real.”

The Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association requested this morning that anyone taking part in the challenge “please do so safely,” adding: “A simple bucket and some ice will do just fine folks.”
