Sarah Jessica Parker Takes On Ice Bucket Challenge In Front of Screaming Fans [VIDEO]

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has encouraged a large number of celebrities to slightly embarrass themselves (and ruin their hair and makeup) for the greater good, spreading awareness of ALS and getting fans to donate towards an incredible cause.

‘Sex and the City’ star, Sarah Jessica Parker, took the challenge to new heights. Instead of filming her video in a controlled environment with the opportunity to edit afterwards, she got dumped on while standing on a hotel balcony in Houston, Texas in front of screaming fans below.

“My name is Sarah Jessica Parker and I’m in Houston, Texas,” she begins, in the first of three Instagram videos.

“I was nominated by Jenny Gersten to take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. No problem.”

In the second video, Parker continues with, “In turn, I nominate Joan Rivers, Kim Kardashian and Billy Eichner. You have 24 hours to accept this challenge.”

After announcing her nominees, she yells “dump it on me!” to a friend off-screen. As the ice cold water hits her head, she screams, along with the cheers of fans watching the event transpire.

Now let’s see if Kardashian is willing to accept the challenge… and let’s hope that Billy Eichner does because I couldn’t imagine many things more hilarious.

Watch the videos on Sarah Jessica Parker’s Instagram.
