Within the last hour Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo has taken the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and uploaded it to his official YouTube channel. This campaign has taken social media websites by storm and you won’t need to look far to see famous people pouring ice water over their heads, and then challenging three other big names in most cases.
We published Microsoft’s Bill Gates taking the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge earlier today, although the Real Madrid player uploaded one of the worst quality videos we’ve seen yet and it’s not clear why Cristiano Ronaldo couldn’t share something in partial HD at least. Either way, we have total respect for Ronaldo stepping up and taking the challenge.
Cristiano Ronaldo has now challenged Jennifer Lopez, Lil Wayne, and Beyonce. What’s your thoughts on how social media and celebrities have really taken to the ALS cause?
We’ve also included a second video below thanks to an ABC news report, which takes a look at the inspiration behind the “Ice Bucket Challenge” that’s gone viral.
