RUSH: The other day I got a video, somebody sent me a video in the e-mail, he said, “Rush, you’ve gotta play this.” I’m not big on Internet videos ’cause of my hearing and so forth, although it’s better. So I clicked on it and it was my buddy George Brett and the country music star Keith Urban in Kansas City taking the ice bucket challenge. And Brett names me as one of the three he next challenges to take the ice bucket challenge. It was me and Tom Watson, who is the Ryder Cup captain from Kansas City, and I forget who the third one that George named was.
Now, obviously, I haven’t done it yet, the ice bucket challenge, but the reason why — George sent me an e-mail, “Have you done this ice bucket thing yet? You know, I called you out.” I said, “No, I haven’t done it.”
“Well, you ought to see the videos all over the Internet. It’s cool, everybody’s doing it.”
I said, “There’s something about this that doesn’t make sense. I think everybody’s doing this wrong.” The ice bucket challenge consists of two things: You either donate to ALS or dump a bucket of ice on your head, right? So how are they raising money if everybody’s just dumping ice on their heads? It seems to me the idea is to send ALS some money. (interruption) Well, they don’t show video of ’em doing both.
