We go back in time and relive video trends that kept us hooked…and in stitches!
Social media is currently awash with the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Ice Bucket Challenge. From Twitter to Instagram, the news feeds are buzzing with video after video of fully clothed folks (mostly celebrities) emptying buckets of freezing cold water on themselves while they nominate someone (usually another celebrity) to do same within 24 hours or donate money to the ALS Association.
While the Ice Bucket challenge started out as a tool to raise awareness/funds for ALS – which is really a term to describe Motor Neurone Disease (MND), a condition which affects a person’s ability to move voluntarily, its quickly become a trend which has caught on the world over.
So in honour of this world wide trend, we’ve decided to go back in time and relive some of such trends and videos which not only went viral but also had us in stitches.
