Google Dublin collectively does one of the bigger Ice Bucket Challenges yet

As you surely know, the Ice Bucket Challenge has been making the rounds lately in support of ALS awareness. Recently, Samsung turned the trend into an advertisement of sorts, dumping a bucket of water on the Galaxy S5 and calling out its competitors. Moreover, the Android team took to their Google+ page yesterday with a cute GIF showing the droid mascot being dunked and linking to the ALSA donate page.

But Google isn’t done yet, as it appears the Dublin team decided to attempt what is one of the bigger collaborative ice bucket challenges I’ve seen. Hundreds of people congregated to dunk themselves in a line, and it looks like they even brought in the fire department to shower everyone with water. The team says that they earned €6,105 for the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association. Check out the video below.
