Chris Hemsworth was challenged by his 'Avengers' rival Mr. Ironman Robert Downey Jr. in a funny video to take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.
Although Hemsworth admits missing the 24 hour deadline, he was still a sport and took the ice water shower along with making a donation. (See video below)
The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has taken storm this summer particularly with celebrities having fun being doused with ice water for a great cause. It has been just as fun watching them get all wet.

Unfortunately, there was a tragic bit of news connected with the challenge when it was reported that the creator of the challenge died tragically this weekend. Fortunately, his good work will live on.
Hemsworth kept the Avengers line of challenges going by nominating Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Mark Ruffalo (Hawk) and Chris Evans (Captain America).

It's another Avengers throw down about to happen when we thought that these guys kissed and made up after their 'Avengers' tussle but apparently not.
Robert Downey Jr. holds up a Thor action figure and hilariously challenged Chris Hemsworth to dump himself in ice water via Twitter as part of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.
People from all walks of life are challenging others to douse themselves in ice water in order to raise funds for ALS.
The majority of challengers will do the bucket challenge anyway with the donation. It has been a hoot to see all the videos of the rich and famous being cold and wet.
From President Obama to billionaire Bill Gates, they have all been challenged. This has been ALS's best fundraising campaign in its history. Individuals challenge others to pour buckets of ice water over their heads. The challengee has 24 hours to comply with the challenge or they will have to make a donation.
As of August 12, the official ALS site reports that "between July 29 and today, August 12, The ALS Association and its 38 chapters have received an astonishing $4 million in donations compared to $1.2 million during the same time period last year.
The ALS Association encourages everyone to challenge their friends to help raise money to help find a cure. However, if you don't want to take an ice bath, you can go to ALS.org and make a donation today!
Watch Downey challenge Hemsworth below.

Surrounded by hostile jihadists and aggressive squadmates, she strikes up an unusual friendship with one of the detainees. A story of two people, on opposite sides of a war, struggling to find their way through the ethical quagmire of Guantanamo Bay. And in the process, they form an unlikely bond that changes them both.
