David Spade Skipped the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and We Love Him for It

Pin It

It's no secret that we are loving all of these celebrity ALS Ice Bucket Challenge videos. The campaign has raised so much awareness about ALS aka "Lou Gehrig's Disease" and it's raised a whole lot of money, so we're all about it.

When we heard that David Spade skipped the ice bucket challenge, we were like 'what the heck?' Then, when we watched his video, we wanted to jump through our computer screens and give him a big giant hug.

While everyone who does the challenge is still encouraged to donate, those who don't are supposed to donate $100 to the ALS Association. In David's case, he dodged the ice bucket and we're SO glad he did because he wrote a whopping $100,000 check to the organization instead. Yep, that's three extra zeroes!

David tells TMZ that he made the extremely generous donation because he lost a family member to the disease, so the campaign hit really close to home.

The comedian actually got pretty serious when he was explaining his stake in the whole thing. Check out the video below to see what he had to say.
