Muppets Take "Ice Bucket Challange"

Have you seen the "Ice Bucket Challenge" storming through social media? If you're on social media then chances are you have. If you aren't aware, the "Ice Bucket Challenge" is an activity involving dumping a bucket of ice water on one's head or donating to the ALS Association (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), also known as Lou Gehrig's disease.


So far two of our favorite Muppets have taken the icy plunge for the cause.

Kermit posted his video on youtube:

Here at Muppet Stuff we challenge you all to take the "Ice Bucket Challenge" as well as to donate to the ALS Association
