The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has swept the nation in a viral effort to raise more money for ALS.org, a charity dedicated to funding and researching the development of new treatments for Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS. This disease is commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease in the United States, as the famous Yankee retired after being diagnosed with the illness. Perhaps the most famous person alive today with the disease is theoretical physicist Dr. Stephen Hawking. Regardless, earlier this week Xbox’s Phil Spencer challenged Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime to the ice bucket challenge and Reggie accepted over Twitter. Today, we see the results of that challenge, where Reggie and the entire team at Nintendo of America have taken the challenge. It’s a great heart-warming video, and remember that Ubisoft’s CEO has challenged Shigeru Miyamoto to join in on the fun. local_offer als ice bucket challenge Nintendo nintendo of america wii u stars Further Reading Legendary Pokemon coming to Pokemon Go The cost of Nintendo consoles in today's dollars Wii U gets firmware update Watch the Smash 4 EVO Finals on Disney XD Take a peek at this week’s Nintendo Dow 9 things you probably didn't know about Super Mario Bros.

Bob Wilkerson Good for Nintendo.. found a way to get more people to donate and get involved. Squid Those were some buckets, William Cole Now that’s what I call Regi-ce! “http://s28.postimg.org/t0t8jlqkd/Regice.png” Bob Wilkerson Dude… that’s cold famous_wolf Your joke gave me chills. MewtwoWillBeBack …I’m ready to watch this http://i3.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/000/077/988/my_body_is_ready.png JB That’s awesome! Though I was really hoping to see Mario get doused. Look at the smug bastard, just standing there, cheering on. Knowing he was free and clear… 😛 Prizm oh god, mario looks like he’s wearing an incontinence diaper PlayboyPacquiao They should of dumped dry ice on sales and marketing guy Scott Moffit..

Good for you guys for doing this! Christian Schoff That was awesome. Ducked Something people will never know is Elsa started this! Dammit Frozen! Daniel Gonzalez http://31.media.tumblr.com/35bb67482d6ec0329ed391ea9df0ccd5/tumblr_mxgo98itpb1s3s22so4_250.gif Ducked No, not that song! William Cole I hated that movie just because of the music! I mean, older Disney movies have class but this one had baby tunes. Ducked I thought the music was actually great, besides that awful troll song. It’s just so overplayed that’s it hard not to hate it. Matthew Stapleton Count yourself lucky, I work for Wal-Mart and have to listen to that song EVERY day…… Ducked Walmart plays like that? BrBa Not trying to be a dick, but I fucking hate Frozen …. Geckoblade64 no fair enough you’re not being a dick. it’s horrible. Bowsah Oh my God, like I hate it too. I thought I was literally the only person on Earth that didn’t like that movie. Also, I think Frozen has the fastest fake death scene in the history of Disney. It doesn’t even make any sense on how she was able to be brought back to life any how! Using Disney’s own logic from the movie, she still shouldn’t have been able to be brought back to life… BrBa Call me ignorant if u want, but I didn’t even watch the movie :P. I don’t do disney anymore. ( Except for Kingdom heart,tho ) Guest His body was definitely ready Joel Cruz Why cant people just fuken donate the money only! http://cdn.twentytwowords.com/wp-content/uploads/California-Drought-before-and-after-pics-05-685×886.jpg BrBa I don’t get it o_O ? DereX I guess he means it’s a waste of water. Steve I agree. Or, at least, have said something about the disease. I feel that simply dumping water on your head is kind of pointless, in terms of informing people about the disease. They could have explained what dumping ice water had to do with ALS. That would have at least informed people about the paralyzingly effects of the disease. That’s just me, though. It’s great that people donate. But I think the actual activity to promote aware could have been done better. mojack411 God how I wish I could work for Nintendo one day. Joel Cruz Why can’t people just donate the money.There is a fuken drought here in California!(sorry for repost internet disconnected) GregoryTheRainMaker Reggie’s body is cold. 😛 Kuhang Menyangbo Nintendo sure knows how to do things differently…Haha 😀 Bobby P. You can see just how the people at Nintendo like to torture by dripping ice water little by little on their co-workers. I would have done dual buckets for Reggie 🙂 Kyle why does he always look so funny BrBa LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL BrBa Sony also did it, both donated and did the challenge (Nominated by Microsoft, For those who didn’t know yet) and WAY sooner than Nintendo ^o^ !!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rni0Rtu4jTs&list=UU-2Y8dQb0S6DtpxNgAKoJKA Now only Lord Gaden is left. Also, Anyone know SEGA did it ?
