Forget ice buckets, Albert the Alligator is going big to help bring awareness to ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease). After being challenged by Boston College’s mascot, Baldwin the Eagle, Albert took an entire Gatorade cooler over the head.
If you’re not familiar with the viral challenge, following is a description from the ALS Association.
The challenge involves people getting doused with buckets of ice water on video, posting that video to social media, then nominating others to do the same, all in an effort to raise ALS awareness. Those who refuse to take the challenge are asked to make a donation to the ALS charity of their choice.
Albert capped it off by challenging four mascots around the country, most notably Hairy Dawg from the Gators’ hated-rival, Georgia.
