It's the moment that all Maksyl fans have been waiting for: the Meryl and Maks ice bucket challenge. The ALS ice bucket challenge has gone nuts online over the past couple of weeks, and the madness has naturally hit the “Dancing With the Stars” crew.

The Meryl and Maks ice bucket round hit Instagram on Wednesday. Meryl Davis and Danica McKellar, the ladies who partnered with Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Val Chmerkovskiy in season 18, posted a video of their ALS ice bucket challenge. They teased that Val's version of doing the challenge doesn't count, so they called him out and want to see the real thing. Will Val and Maks step up after being called out by Meryl and Danica?

While “Dancing With the Stars” fans really wanted to see romance blossom between Davis and Chmerkovskiy, things seemingly just never progressed to that point. However, the Meryl and Maks ice bucket challenge banter certainly shows that they're still friends and on good terms. Maksyl fans will probably never give up hope, of course, and they'll surely love the video that Davis posted.
