Conan O'Brien takes the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

By Elizabeth Sudlow,

The ALS ice bucket challenge has been taking over social media this summer and it has started to reach the celebrities as they too begin to dump buckets of ice over their head to spread awareness of the crippling disease.

Last night Conan O’Brien took on his own challenge during Friday's show as good guy Jimmy Fallon, who completed his own challenge, nominated him a few days prior.

The objective for the challenge is simple: dump a bucket of ice water over your head or donate $100 to the ALS Foundation. While some have been taking to doing both parts, O’Brien was confused.

Entertainment Weekly reports that O’Brien believed by completing his challenge he had earned himself a hundred dollars. He was in shock when he found out he actually had to donate the money and a bucket of ice water was ready for him at any moment.

Following his cold water rinse, O’Brien passed on the challenge and nominated Jimmy Carter, Pelé, and Haley Joel Osment.
