Folk may have been wishing its demise for days now, but the “Ice Bucket Challenge” is still going strong. It seemed to have peaked last week, yet here we are with our fifth collection of hypothermia baiting Eurovision dare devils. Looks like the ice filled timelines are here for some time to come (as in not for ever, but still longer than the “Harlem Shake” lasted).

What is the “Ice Bucket Challenge”?
For those of you who’ve been living in a social media vacuum, the “Ice Bucket Challenge” was started by the American ALS Association in July to raise awareness of the degenerative and incurable ALS or motor neurone disease, the campaign has completely snowballed over the last fortnight, as more and more people get involved. The challenge involves participants recording themselves pour large quantities of water and ice over their heads, posting the clip online, and then nominating others to complete the challenge within 24 hours, while making a charitable donation.
