Every so often while phenomenons sweep through the nation like wild fire.
The rubik’s cube.
The pet rock.
In 2014, the Ice Bucket Challenge swept through the nation, freezing all the wild fire from the east coast to the west coast. Celebrities of all kinds participated in the ritual of having ice dumped over your head.

Not to be left out, business people got involved
BILL GATES (With Contraption)
MARK ZUCKERBERG (Looking Happy)
Not to be left out of the attention, politicians of years past involved.

JOHN MCCAIN (With D’Backs Organization)

DONALD J. TRUMP
SUMMARY OF PAST ELECTION CYCLES AND 2016 CANDIDATES
