Vin Diesel nominates Vladimir Putin to "ice bucket challenge"

Bishkek (AKIpress) - gates The Russian President was nominated by Vin Diesel to perform the charity challenge.

He also put forward Angelina Jolie and Michelle Obama.

Although Putin has not given an outright no, his spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said the President probably wasn’t aware of the challenge.

“We've had other things on our agenda,” Peskov told Russian newspaper Lenta.ru.

The concept of ice bucket challenge, known by people dumping a bucket of ice water on their heads and challenging others to do the same, has spurred millions of dollars in donations for the ALS Association, and is among the biggest viral hits in Facebook’s history.

Facebook company said on Monday that 2.4 million videos “related to the ice bucket challenge have been shared” on the social network, and more than 28 million people have posted, commented or liked a post relating to the challenge.

Vin Diesel's performance can be seen here.
