The Ice Bucket Challenge to raise awareness and money for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) research is sweeping the nation! And you’re probably kind of sick of seeing the videos of people getting doused with frigid water to support the cause. But hold on! Dave Grohl and his Foo Fighters bandmates have just raised the bar big time and put smiles on the faces of horror fans everywhere in the process.
If you’ve seen Brian De Palma’s 1976 classic film Carrie, then you know what the iconic scene is and you know that it involves pig’s blood. Dave Grohl and the guys have paid tribute to that scene to a tee (even including a reenactment of Nancy Allen’s lip licking moment), substituting the blood for equally disturbing ice water. It’s pretty impressive, and Grohl even challenges Stephen King at the beginning of the clip to make it even more awesome. Stay tuned for King’s response, and until then, watch the Foo Fighters’ glorious Carrie homage below:
