Elon Musk And Sons Complete Ice Bucket Challenge From Bill Gates

Elon Musk's Kids "Make It Rain" Just Like Dad

Elon Musk’s Kids “Make It Rain” Just Like Dad

Earlier this week Bill Gates took up the “dump a bucket of ICE water on your head” challenge to raise awareness for ALS from Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg (you can watch that video here).

Then the ex-Microsoft boss asked Elon Musk to do the same; and even though the Tesla and Space X CEO has being feeling a little under the weather of late…no one says no to Bill.

Challenged accepted and completed.

And while Gates came up with an elaborate way to dump the ice water on his head, Elon did one-up Bill by having 5 buckets dumped on his head by his 5 kids.

The kids then nominated Notch (aka Markus Persson of Minecraft fame), Johnny Depp and Tony Hawk to do the same…but unless someone challenges Carlos Ghosn you’ll have to search the web yourselves to find out if they accept.

      I understand that Musk prefers electric!

      With ice the water actually might have been cold. I’m pretty sure most of the celebrities doing this are doing it with warm water or at the most cold water straight from the tap.

      I bath regularly in a hole in the ice at a lake during the winter and rookies like that would have had noticable physical reactions if it actually was ice cold water.

      Anyway, ALS is the point and it is getting a lot of attention which is the thing that really counts.

      Both Bill Gates and Elon Musk didn’t just pore the water on their heads. They dropped the water from buckets suspended from some height above them. Dropping chunks of ice is going to hurt more than just poring them over your head.

    That was at least creative. His kids being so similar in age means, I imagine, that at least one set is twins.

    1. Alonso Perez says:

      One set twins, the other set triplets.

    2. Anderlan says:

      Twins and triplets! Don’t bet against Elon Musk, ever, even in bed!

    The nod at the end said it all… 🙂

    Humanity needs you—-
    Houdini did something stupid—-
    And we lost him—-
    You could have just given extra money or the very least waited until you felt 100%—

  6. Anderlan says:

    I’m guessing one of the kids found the challenge before dad and then they all knew and this was the inevitable outcome.

  7. Martin T says:

    At least the kids can be clearly having fun 🙂 Good sport Elon !

      And THERE’S the proof that nobody has been using C O L D water…
      How did he NOT swear? Seriously, HOW?

        Maybe it was swimming against the vodka’s he just slammed down?
