Dave Grohl takes ALS Ice Bucket Challenge to a new level

Grohl ALS Ice Bucket Crop

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has taken the ALS Ice Bucket challenge to a whole new level.

With the help of fellow Foos Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel and Pat Smear, Grohl spectacularly recreates the infamous “bucket of blood” scene from horror film Carrie, including being dressed head-to-toe in full prom dress. Hawkins portrays Grohl’s prom date.

Grohl calls out Jack Black and Carrie star John Travolta to make their own ice bucket challenge videos, and also nominates Stephen King, author of the original book of Carrie.

You can watch Grohl’s typically flamboyant video below:

Celebrities the world over have been taking part in the challenge, filming themselves having a bucket of ice cold water thrown over them in various different and dramatic ways. ALS – amyotrophic lateral sclerosis – is a terminal illness which causes muscles to weaken and stiffen.
