Obama Declines Ice Bucket Challenge; What about Putin? Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Wed, Aug 20, 2014, 01:13 am

The Russian media is calling for President Vladimir Putin of Russia to take on the ice bucket challenge, because President Barry Obama already wimped out.

Accoring to Russia Today, "US actor Vin Diesel has publicly nominated Putin for the worldwide charity “Ice Bucket Challenge” alongside Michelle Obama and actress Angelina Jolie. If the Russian president accepts, it would see him dumping a large bucket of ice over his head."

If Putin chooses not to pour ice water over his head, he could lose the respect of some Russians, since Obama failed to take on the challenge as well.

As reported by RT, "People who are called to complete the challenge are given a period of roughly 24 hours to pour a full bucket over their own heads to raise awareness of the disease. The Instagram video sees the buff “Fast and the Furious” film star heaving a basin of ice cubes and near-freezing water over his own head before pointing at the camera and suggesting that Putin do the same."

Putin faces a 24-hour deadline to make a decision on the ice bucket challenge.
