The Duck Dynasty family is taking on the YouTube challenge in their usual over the top fashion. Instead of simply doing the usual ice bucket challenge and dumping water on Willie Robertson, they used the top of the Duck Commander building in order to create one wet Willie!
In a related report by The Inquisitr, the ice bucket challenge has practically everyone challenging their their friends or famous people. For example, Bill Gates got soaked in high tech fashion, as might be expected from a tech giant billionaire. Former WWE wrestler CM Punk had his new wife AJ Lee dump the can on him. Even Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos dared the Star Trek actors to take part in the challenge.
The ice bucket challenge is attempting to gain attention for research on ALS, which stands for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a neurological disease that affects the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that control voluntary muscle movement. ALS is more commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, named after the famed baseball player who contracted the disease at the height of his career. The way the challenge works is that people on social media will challenge you. If you don’t respond within 24 hours, you’re supposed to donate money.
Willie Robertson of Duck Dynasty fame allowed his trademark long beard to be soaked to the roots in a slightly more inventive manner. Friends climbed up on top of the roof of the Duck Commander building and then dumped the ice bucket on Willie from above. Now that the Robertson family has completed the ice bucket challenge, Willie has challenged his son, John Luke, professional baseball player Adam LaRoche, and NFL player Matt Light to go under the bucket.
You might have heard already, but Duck Dynasty Season 7 is in the works and Phil Robertson, Willie, and the rest of the gang were spotted in Scotland filming for new episodes. It’s assumed they’ll be up to the usual mischief, but they’re also exploring the Scottish heritage of the Robertson family.
