ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

You probably remember the ice bucket challenge because almost everyone did it last year.  The challenge started in the July of 2014 and ended around March and April 2015.  The ice bucket challenge is an activity were you dump ice water on someone’s head to raise awareness for ALS ,also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.  You spread the challenge by saying 3 names of people you want to do the challenge and donate to an ALS charity.

The challenge was popularized by celebrities and YouTube stars doing the challenge then challenging other celebrities.  Some celebrities that did the ice bucket challenge where Benedict Cumberbatch, Leonardo DiCaprio, Taylor Swift, and the Harry Potter cast.  Even Obama did the challenge. image3

Some videos were pretty creative and some others were very generic.  My favorite ice bucket challenge video is the one that the YouTube Matimi0 did.  He first dumped the water on his head.  After that he did a back flip.

So many people did the challenge that Fail Army did a video of ” Best ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Fails Compilation.”  This is a video of people getting wrecked doing the challenge.  Some were the person dumping the water accidentally dropped the bucket on the persons head.

The challenge raised a little over 220 million dollars total.  Bill Gates raised around half the money and performed the challenge.  The CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg also performed the challenge.

You should watch some ice bucket challenge videos and some fail videos.  Also Comment some of your favorite videos of the challenge.

 

What are those!

The first time you saw what are those you either found it yourself or a friend sent it to you or tagged you in a video.  The first time watching it you were most likely confused and thinking “what is this.”  Then After watching the video a couple times you watch other what are those videos.  After watching more and more you probably sent it to a friend or tagged some in one.

What are those is a Internet meme of one person pointing at another persons feet and saying what are those.  What are those was posted on June 14th, 2015.  The video was about a man pointing at a police officers boots and saying what are those.

This video caught attention and short video makers started making little videos of what are those videos.  Once the videos were posted it became an internet sensation.  What are those was easy to make so many people started making their own what are those videos.  I believe that this is one of the reasons that what are those became a trend.  Another reason I think that What are those became popular is people can share things and it gets sent to people all over the world.  Then once people see enough of videos they start saying what are those.

 

Recently what are those is going out the door and becoming the past.  Like most memes it will be forgotten with in a year.  Memes like 9+10=21 is gone but you still remember it.  I suggest that you should watch some old trends like 9=10=21 and Lebron James.  After watching some think to your self and wonder why did we think that this was funny.

 

My favorite What are those is the one were an older man is standing in water and the person recording the video jumps in the water.  Once he is under water he points at his shoes and says what are those.  After watching the video a couple times i felt that you can get very very creative making what are those videos.  This is the only one that stands out to me and one of the only ones I remember.  What is your favorite what are those videos and how many do you remember.
