Tim Cook's ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Accepted by Dr. Dre

The mild-mannered Tim Cook, who happens to be one of the leaders of global technology in the 21st century, chose Dr. Dre of Beats Records to take part in the by now famous ALS ice bucket challenge

Among the list of celebrities that have participated in the ordeal of ice cold liquid may be included Justin Bieber and Iggy Azalea. Bieber even had the chutzpah to nominate President Obama to undergo the baptism by icy water. 

The ice bucket challenge is basically an awareness raising campaign that collects funds for ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) or Lou Gehrig’s disease. 

By having a container of cold-as-hell water poured on top of your head you are in a way identifying with sufferers of the incurable illness. 

Dr. Dre (the Dre comes from his real surname which is Andre) is a pretty large person so he had a special bucket pour all that freezing water on him from an apparatus. 

Watch below the video clip of Dr. Dre taking ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

Meanwhile, after completing the challenge, Dr. Dre decided to nominate the bad boy (and genius poetaster) of rap who worked under him, Eminem, as well as Snoop Dogg. 

The third person the Doc selected was Kendrick Lamar. The challenge is basically a self-perpetuating relay race where every participant gets to link a next one who will do the task after him or her. 

It started awhile back and by now it has begun to pick up momentum. Dr. Dre chose quite wisely. There were two rap artists on the list and they were pretty obvious choices. 

But the third was none other than Kendrick Lamar. Iggy Azalea also undertook the formidable task and had mixed feelings about the whole shebang. 

She wore a neon orange-red swimsuit while getting inundated by the downpour of slushy sub-zero water. Such challenges and tests are a feature that increases the level of awareness about various issues. 

Like the Pink Ribbon Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign, the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge too has its rightful place in the causes worth donating money to as well as undertaking.
