Over the past week, we’ve seen a lot of people dumping buckets of ice water on their head to promote awareness about ALS — the progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Thankfully some very creative people have made the #IceBucketChallenge more engaging — like Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters.
The band has re-created the bloody prom scene from Carrie in their video. Based on Stephen King's 1974 novel of the same name, Carrie was directed by Brian De Palma and brought the story of a tormented young woman who unleashes her telekinetic powers on her high school class to the big screen. Kudos to singer Grohl who does a wicked Sissy Spacek cry-face in the video. We're just glad we didn't have to see his "dirty pillows." In the end, we prefer the bucket of pig’s blood, but we’ll happily accept this PG-rated version of Carrie in support of the ALS Association’s fundraiser drive.
