There’s no slipping out of this one, even the TCL Chinese Theatre IMAX in Hollywood has gotten into the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge but with a major twist.
It all happened last Friday August 22nd when TCL’s China based CEO Hao Yi challenged Alwyn Hight Kushner, president & COO of The TCL Chinese Theatre IMAX to do the now sweeping ice bucket over the head ceremony.
But, the theatre folks added a slight turn to the game sort of bending the rules of ALS Ice Bucket Challenge because of California’s severe drought, and because the challenge took place in the forecourt of the iconic movie palace, warm buttered popcorn was substituted for ice..
James De Gallegos of Film Finances Inc also suffered through the popcorn dump. Before the two were doused they issued challenges to a number of people including Christopher Nolan & Jackie Chan (both of whom have their handprints in the forecourt), and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, Tom LaBonge, Mitch O’Farrell.
