Homer Simpson Takes The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge [VIDEO]

Almost everyone has stepped up and taken the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, raising awareness and donations for the disease.  In the last month, over 88 million dollars have been raised compared to just 2.6 million donated in that span a year ago.  The challenges have been accepted by not just the average folk like you and us here at X-Jock, but celebrities and even Presidents have felt the cold ice down their back and reached into their wallets to help combat ALS.  Today, we see one of the most iconic celebrities of all-time accept his challenge – a 25 year TV and movie star and Springfield native… Homer J. Simpson. Watch Homer take the challenge and see who he nominates.

The Simpsons, America’s longest running television program, has been trending all over social media in the last week.  FXX has decided to run every single episode of the show, in order – all 552 of our favorites.  While we quote each line and DVR the Tree House of Horror specials to replay on Halloween, the creators thought of a phenomenal idea – why not take advantage of the world-wide trending of the Simpsons marathon and have the show help with the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge?  If you haven’t participated in raising awareness yet, who better to relate to and heed advice from than Homer Simpson?  For two and a half decades, Homer has, at some point, been a staple in your life, no?  At least once in your life, you have uttered the word “D’oh!” So while you may not vote for a certain politician or buy a musician’s album, the creators of The Simpsons know that Homer is a guy that will nab our attention.  Kudos to The Simpsons’ brass for allowing Homer Simpson to take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.
