Destiny's Ghost takes the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Last week Warframe developer Digital Extremes had a couple of its armored space soldiers take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge in addition to the studio donating $10K to ALS research. It concluded its act by nominating three other video game characters to take the plunge: Halo's Master Chief, Borderlands' Claptrap, and Destiny's Ghost.

The first two have yet to step up, but Bungie created the following video of a wizard launching an ice bucket at Ghost all the way from the moon.

Additionally, several Bungie staffers are donating to the cause and 20 per cent of all proceeds from the Bungie Store between now and 9th September will go to the ALS Association to fund research for a cure to Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, aka Lou Gerhig's Disease.

Bungie ended its video with the moon-based wizard challenging The Last of Us' Joel, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's Jonathan Irons (i.e. digital Kevin Spacey), and George Lucas.

Previous industry figures that have taken the Ice Bucket Challenge include Gears of War lead designer Cliff Bleszinski and Xbox head honcho Phil Spencer.

Have been following the trend.

Anyway, this has to be the single biggest example of herd mentality in recorded history. The original ALS message (and cause) was lost entirely once the celebs took a back seat to the plebs on Facebook who hijacked it for themselves as a way of garnering yet more attention to feed their ongoing narcissistic desires. Most people participating now don't even know why they're doing it.

It's really rather sad; and quite fascinating at the same time.

Good post, you've pretty much summed up my thoughts on the whole Ice Bucket challenge.

Whilst there's no doubting that many people have donated as a result of this, I do feel that a lot of the original message has been lost and that in many cases it is being done for the wrong reasons (i.e. herd mentality).
