Lead vocalist for the Foo Fighters Dave Grohl has taken to the ‘ice bucket challenge’ craze in typically flamboyant fashion. The Foo Fighters frontman pulled out all the stops for his ice bucket charity video. In the clip, he parodies the classic horror film Carrie with the help of his bandmates Nate Mendel, Pat Smear and Taylor Hawkins.
Grohl calls out Jack Black and Carrie star John Travolta to make their own ice bucket challenge videos, and also nominates Carrie author Stephen King. He dresses in full prom queen regalia and takes to the stage with Hawkins, who portrays Carrie’s date.
The #ALSIceBucketChallenge has taken social media by storm, and we can only hope that the charity is actually seeing some of the promised donations. Those taking part in the challenge are asked to donate to the cause via the ALS Association website.
Here’s the epic Foo Fighters ALS Ice Bucket Challenge video:
The Foo’s recently announced the title, track list and release date of their upcoming album ‘Sonic Highways‘.
