Leave it to Vin Diesel to come up with his own unique twist on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. After Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn challenged Vin Diesel to take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, Vin Disesel accepted, but he issued his own challenge back to Gunn.
“Yes, James Gunn I accept the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge to raise awareness for Lou Gehrig’s disease,” said Vin Diesel. “But I raise you, plant a tree for Groot.”
It’s an interesting counter-challenge from Vin Diesel. Could it lead to celebrities uploading videos of themselves planting trees for Groot to recognize environmental concerns?
In addition to starting the “plant a tree for Groot” challenge, Vin Diesel also posted video of himself actually taking the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. After dumping the ice over his head, Vin Diesel challenged Michelle Obama, Angelina Jolie, and Putin.
The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge helps to raise money and awareness for ALS charities.
