Samsung Galaxy S5 does the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Samsung said that it would donate money for the Motor Neurone Disease Association.

By now, you've probably seen at least one or more online videos of celebrities dumping buckets of ice water over their heads for a cause. That cause is for ALS or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a motor neurone disease. It's commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has been very successful. To date, the ALS Association has raised over $53 million, according to Time. Now Samsung is joining the trend by using its flagship Galaxy S5 to support ALS.

Yesterday, Samsung Mobile U.K. released the video of the Galaxy S5's ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. It featured a female voice akin to Samsung's Siri counterpart. As the ice-cold water hits the phone, the voice exclaims, "Gosh, that's freezing."

Probably the best part of the video is when Samsung challenged Apple's iPhone 5S to follow suit. Samsung also called on HTC's One M8 and Nokia's Lumia 930. On a serious note, Samsung said that it would donate money for the Motor Neurone Disease Association, a charity based in Britain.
