Top Ice Bucket Challenge fails

ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE: Houston Texans coach Bill O’Brien, center, Chief Operating Officer Cal McNair, right, and Houston Chronicle reporter Brian Smith, left, pour ice cold water over their head after an NFL football training camp practice Thursday, Aug. 14 in Houston. The three were challenged to take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge to raise money for the ALS Association. The challenge, a social media phenomenon, is part of a program launched by the ALS Association to raise money for fighting ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. Participants challenge others on video to do it or donate money to ALS before dumping ice cold water over their heads. Photo: Associated Press

Everyone you know – and don’t know – is getting in the #ALS #IceBucketChallenge. Your news feeds and social media accounts are probably flooded with videos and photos of celebrities, your neighbors, (and maybe even you!), dumping buckets of ice on their heads for charity. If you’re like us, you have probably heard people complaining about the trend and urging people to just give money sans embarrassing icy baths. Here are a few people who probably wish they would have just taken that advice:

This guy, who forgot about his feet…

Anyone who has stood under a deck to do this challenge…

This lady, who should have used a stronger bucket…

This kid, who maybe wishes he would have used a lighter bucket…

Again, people! Stop standing under decks! Just skip ahead to 48 seconds in …

This guy, who luckily has a thick skull…

And everyone in this video…

Not everyone makes a fool out of themselves completing the Ice Bucket Challenge. Check out some of our favorite celebrity challenges.
