Homer Simpson Accepts the Ice Bucket Challenge, Gets a Surprise Attack Instead
Everyone is getting in on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, including Homer Simpson! We’ve already seen Marvel, ‘Star Wars: Episode 7‘ and ‘Game of Thrones‘ stars heed the call, but now watch your favorite TV dad from Springfield join the ranks.
Of course, Homer pulls a Homer by trying to weasel his way out of pouring a bucket’s worth of ice water on himself, but, thankfully, someone (we won’t spoil that for you) gets the drop on him.
‘The Simpsons‘ is currently in the midst of a 12-day, 552-episode marathon on FXX, which started airing every single episode in a row last Thursday at 10 p.m. EST. So, Homer really needed this break from the grind, and, fortunately, it wasn’t to grab a few beers (or a dozen) at Moe’s. It’s always nice to see celebrities, even animated ones, use their fame for a charitable purpose.
The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge continues to rage on, with everyone from your next-door neighbor to Benedict Cumberbatch submitting videos online. As of yesterday, The ALS Association, which funds ALS research and clinical management programs, has raised $88.5 million in donations.
