THIS MAN HAS ALS, AND HIS ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE WILL MAKE YOU LAUGH. THEN IT’LL MAKE YOU CRY
The video begins humorously as Anthony Carbajal, a photographer, dresses up in a neon bikini top and soaps up a car before being doused with ice water.
So watch the full video here and laugh out loud at the first half and then get ready to tear up in the second half.
Watching an old family friend suffer from ALS, watch his life fall apart around him and his family unable to do anything except be there with him, makes this ice bucket challenge all the more meaningful. The funny ones, the ones that touch you, they all do the same thing—they bring attention to a debilitating disease that has no cure. I’m never going to get tired of ice buckets showing up on my dash or Facebook. In fact, I’ll look at every single one of them. He makes a good point—the ice bucket challenge isn’t going to be around forever, but the people diagnosed with ALS can’t escape it. That’s what makes it a wonderful movement.
