Tina Fey answers Kermit the Frog's ice bucket challenge...kind of

In the realm of celebrities nominating celebrities for the ALS ice bucket challenge, some are headscratchers (like Britney Spears nominating Adam Sandler, because…the ’90s?) and others make complete, perfect sense.

Consider Tina Fey’s challenge at the request of one Kermit the Frog in the latter category. Fey accepted her Muppets Most Wanted co-star’s nomination and took to the rooftops of Brooklyn to complete the drop…for the most part.

Fey did play ball, but she enlisted her daughter Alice (who has subbed in for her lookalike mother before) to take some of the heat off the icy cold challenge.

Watch the video below, originally posted to Kermit’s Facebook page:

Today’s the day. Today is the day when the internet might actually implode. Not only has everyone’s favorite internet boyfriend, Benedict Cumberbatch, joined the trend and completed the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, but he did it more than once … and one time, he did it naked.

In other words, America’s Funniest Home Videos needs to donate some money to ALS as a nice thank you for the number of quality bloopers this fundraising effort has provided.

From scared dogs to weak children (no offense) and every clumsy person in between, watch a compilation of what is now trending as #IceBucketFail below:

Conan O'Brien does the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Last night, Conan O’Brien followed in Jimmy Fallon’s footsteps and took part in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, which was designed to spread the word about ALS. Those who perform the challenge can then challenge someone else. If the person challenged doesn’t complete it in 24 hours, they have to donate $100 to ALS.

Only someone didn’t fully explain that to O’Brien. After trying to fake his way through the challenge to earn $100 bucks, O’Brien was in for a rude awakening when he realized that not only was he was supposed to donate the money, but a real bucket of ice water was waiting for him. After the traumatic experience, a very cold O’Brien passed the challenge on to Jimmy Carter, Pelé, and Haley Joel Osment. So I guess we’ll see how that goes.
