Ice Bucket Challenge Fails: 10 of the Most Hilarious Attempts (VIDEO)

LOL 12

Ice bucket challenge fails

Have you heard about the ice buck -- okay, of course you've heard about the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Your Facebook feed is filled to the brim with videos of people doing the #icebucketchallenge. Hundred of celebrities have shared videos of themselves doing the ice bucket challenge. You've even seen the inevitable backlash to the ice bucket challenge.

This Monday the ALS Association said the challenge has helped raise more than $15 million in donations, and given the ongoing viral phenomenon of these videos, millions of dollars are likely still to come in before we all get distracted by something shiny.

That's amazing, and obviously anyone who loudly complains about these videos should dump an ice-cold bucket of STFU over their own head. Buuuuuuuuuut for those who are secretly a teeny tiny bit weary of this particular social media trend … please enjoy these 10 ice bucket challenge videos gone (stupendously, hilariously) bad.

1) This guy who's probably dead now.

Holy crap. Good thing he was wearing a helmet.

2) This brother whose challenge participation strategy inadvertently changed midstream.

My favorite part is the hysterical cackling of whoever's shooting the video.

3) This girl who is probably also dead.

OMG stop trying to dump enormously heavy buckets from heights, people.

4) This girl who should have used something other than a cooler.

The shower rod collapsing is the cherry on top.

5) This girl who shouldn't have tried to get creative.

I love that this was take two, by the way.

6) This guy who doesn't understand styrofoam.

At least he didn't plummet over the side of the building, which is what I thought was going to happen.

7) This girl whose friend must have skipped arm day.


8) This dad who shouldn't have put the kids to work.

Heavy bucket, little kid = faaaaaaiiiiiil.

9) This guy who shouldn't have tied up his dog nearby.

Dogs don't understand fundraising, dude.

10) This guy whose friend really should have HELD ONTO THE BUCKET.

Haaa. Oh dear. I feel bad for laughing. Hahahahahaha. Sort of. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA.

Be honest: do you love the ice bucket fails like a thousand times better than the successful videos? By the way, to skip the challenge part and go directly to the donating, you can give to the ALS online, by phone, or by mail. Here's some information on how the organization uses donated funds.

I think this is all absurd and getting old.

Considering half the people doing it aren't even dumping ice water, it's just water. And they are all just doing it for the sake of doing it.

So glad no one has nominated me to do it, as I will refuse to do.

To Krystian: it may be getting old, but it is actually working. 15 million in donations I believe was last total I heard. It is silly. It is fun. Who cares if one dumps lukewarm water? Don't be a stick in the mud. When was the last time a fundraiser was actually fun? People are laughing. People now know about ALS. Why even waste time being sour?

I know this is supposed to be a fun fundraiser and all but I just hate the fact that most of the people doing still have no clue what ALS is. Wish they would stress what it is a bit more.

I'm very happy that they are raising so much money to the cause. Not happy about wasting water.

I challenge Krystian, to remove the large stick up her ass. 15 million in donations is amazing, more people know what ALS is today than they did yesterday, making it a success. Doesn't it tiring to find negativity in everything?

Number 10 made me laugh so fucking hard... 😄

Sad to say the girl with the blue polka dotted dress who invites her cousin to stand by her did dies from complications of her neck being broke by the tote being dropped on her head.
