    I have no idea what these people are doing, but all of it is awesome and I hope it never ends.

    Here’s what I think is going on. Apparently, BMX and motocross legend Jeremy McGrath was called out by someone to dump a bucket of ice water on his head, film it, and post it on Instagram. So he did, and called out NASCAR’s Jimmie Johnson, Vanilla Ice and PGA Tour star Rickie Fowler.

    "Here ya go @jimmiejohnson @vanillaiceofficial @therealrickiefowler you have one week to accept or pay 100$ to Betematch.org have fun boys! #friends#loveit @bmsaunders @slasher200"

    Naturally, Fowler saw the video and answered the challenge. Because of course he did.

    "So I got called out by @jeremymcgrath2 and@l_damian1 last night for the ice bucket challenge...it may not look like cold water but my ice maker makes the Sonic ice I'm now calling out@keeganbradley1 @jessicatickle and@aaroncrooks...you have 24 hours to complete or donate $100 to the charity of my choice...enjoy!! And got photobombed by my neighbors in the making!"

    In his video, Rickie called out golf pal Keegan Bradley to keep the most ridiculous chain letter going strong. Keegan did not back down from the challenge.

    "I got called out by @therealrickiefowler in the ice bucket challenge. I now call out @jcchiggy and@djohnsonpga you have 24 hours to post a video or have to donate $100 to my charity!"

    And then it just kind of went every which way. Some challenges are being answered, some are not, at least as far as we can tell. Maybe some folks are actually donating money and not posting about it.

    Regardless, I'm beginning to feel a little uneasy with the various stages of dress these guys are comfortable filming themselves in. Whatever, this is still hilarious.

    "I got called out by @keeganbradley1 in the ice bucket challenge. I now call out @jlovemark and@brendansteele. You have 24 hours to post the video or donate 100$ to my charity!"
