The Ice Bucket Challenge has officially taken a presidential turn.
After being nominated by a number of people, including daughter Jenna Bush Hager, former President George W. Bush accepted—and successfully completed—the viral ice bucket challenge in order to promote awareness and raise money for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig's disease.
"To you all who challenged me, I do not think it's presidential for me to be splashed with ice water, so I'm simply going to write you a check," he says, taking a cue from President Barack Obama—although wife Laura Bush had a better idea.
As the 43rd president of the United States begins to write the check, the former first lady sneaks up behind him and douses her hubby with a bucket of freezing cold H2O. Sneaky!
