Many considered Patrick Stewart’s classy response to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge the video to end all Ice Bucket Challenge videos, but the games industry still has some unfinished business with the fundraiser to cure Lou Gerhig’s Disease.
When we left off, Xbox boss Phil Spencer nominated Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida, Valve’s Gabe Newell, and Nintendo’s Reggie Fils-Aime to complete the challenge. While Yoshida and Newell haven’t responded, Fils-Aime not only accepted the challenge, but roped in plenty of other Nintendo executives to partake as well.
The rule was simple: Anyone at Nintendo of America who donated towards the ALS Association got a raffle ticket to execute the dunking of their bosses. As you can see, many relished in making it a slow, painful process.
Reggie and company didn’t nominate anyone else for the challenge, so this could complete the cycle… unless of course Yoshida or Newell decide to partake, in which case we’ll update to include that.
