Sorry to disappoint, but the affable Vice President Joe Biden is the latest politician who will not be taking the ALS "Ice Bucket Challenge."
Biden was challenged by fictional VP Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who plays the vice president on the HBO comedy series Veep.
Instead, the Vice President said via Twitter that has made a donation “in honor of my late friend.”
The awareness campaign for amyotropic lateral sclerosis, or ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease, has become a viral social media sensation as people douse themselves with a bucket of ice water and then challenge others to do the same.
More than $41 million dollars have been raised for ALS, compared to $2 million during the same period last year.
President Barack Obama passed on pouring freezing water over his head and made a donation instead.
Former President George W. Bush challenged his predecessor, Bill Clinton.
