The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is still going! Though inciting some controversy, the campaign’s viral videos have reportedly raked in $31.5 million for ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, aka Lou Gehrig’s disease) since July 29 (versus $1.9 million this time last year). And the celebrity families are loving it.
Yesterday, Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale’s son Kingston was the talk of the ALS challenge. Today, it’s the Wahlberg family.
This morning, Mark Wahlberg shared a super-cute video of his wife, Rhea, and three of their kids—Michael, Ella and Brendan (the youngest, Grace, stayed dry)—taking the challenge. Each one of them took a turn nominating their fave actors, singers and sports stars, including Jay Z, Spike Lee, Eminem, actress Shailene Woodley and more. Watch, and see how adorable!
“Hi, this is the Wahlberg family here,” Mark says. “We’re about to answer the challenge…”
“Wait! I can’t do it with my Jordans on,” he says, and takes them off while stating his nominations. Ha!
Watch the video all the way to the end when Mark may or may not flash those famous abs—*swoon*!—and there’s lots of warranted screeching (brrrrr!). Enjoy:
